Notes: Tulsa has dropped its first three games to open American Athletic Conference play, following back-to-back overtime defeats with a 68-52 setback against South Florida on Sunday. After pulling within five points with three minutes to go, the Hurricane didn’t score again while giving up the last 11 points. ... Alexis Gaulden, a Broken Arrow native, made the league’s honor roll after tying her career high with five 3-pointers Sunday en route to a team-best 19 points. She also had six rebounds and six steals. ... Wichita State is coming off a 61-53 win at East Carolina. The Shockers have one player averaging in double figures, guard Mariah McCully (12.8 ppg). ... Wichita State leads the series 17-4, but the Hurricane defeated the Shockers twice last season, in Tulsa and in the conference tournament.
