Midwestern State made just enough plays down the stretch and battled on the glass to come away with its fourth consecutive win taking a 77-67 road win over Texas-Permian Basin Wednesday night at the Falcon Dome.
"It's just a choppy game now and it really doesn't allow you to get into a rhythm," MSU coach Noel Johnson said. "I'm proud of the girls for playing through the foul trouble and adjusting. We made some plays down the stretch both offensively and defensively that helped us win the ball game."
The Mustangs improved to 7-3 on the season after claiming their sixth win in the last seven games and the difference has been clear.The Mustangs connected on 26 of 38 free throws in a game that featured 54 fouls -- 31 of those on the home standing Falcons.
"The kids did a good job and followed the game plan," Johnson said. "This is a tough place to play."
Midwestern State returns to D.L. Ligon Coliseum to take on Cedarville (Ohio) on Friday night. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
