Five players scored in double figures and the ULM women's basketball team forced 35 turnovers to defeat SIU-Edwardsville, 82-54, Sunday afternoon inside Fant-Ewing Coliseum.
Sumar Leslie and Elizabeth Torres each scored 12 points while Kassie Courtney, Lottie Moore and Jesse Carrier added 10 points apiece.
In addition to forcing the 35 turnovers, ULM (8-4) held SIU-Edwardsville (1-13) to 28.1 percent shooting on the afternoon.
"I was disappointed with our lack of intensity today," ULM head coach Mona Martin said. "We got to the rim when we wanted, but we didn't have good post play. We have to play better and finish there. In the second half we came out and played much better. We caused some quick turnovers right off the bat and that led to quick buckets. We still have to play better though."
The Warhawks did not shoot well early on, making four of their first 16 shots. Courtney then gave the Warhawks a spark with a 3-pointer from the right corner to give ULM and eight-point lead at 14-6.
Leslie followed that on the next Warhawks possession with an old-fashioned 3-point play.
SIU-Edwardsville cut the lead back down to nine at 21-12 with 7:47 left on a lay-up by Melia Duncan, but the Warhawks still managed to take a 14-point lead into halftime.
The deficit was in large part due to a stingy ULM defense that forced SIU-Edwardsville into 23 turnovers and held the Cougars to 25.9 percent shooting from the floor.
A lay-up by the Cougars' Ashley Bey early in the second half cut the deficit to 10 one final time at 38-28.
The Warhawks rattled off a key 13-0 run with an aggressive full-court press and some easy baskets to push their advantage above 20 points for good. Leslie scored five points during the run and capped it off with a 10-foot jumper.
