Austin: Slugfest Half Ends, LSU with a Narrow Lead

By Jean Neuberger - March 19, 2007

In what might have been one of the ugliest first halves in the 2007 NCAA Women's Tournament, LSU heads into halftime clinging to a 21-18 lead over West Virginia, who ran off the court in jubiliation, knowing that this time, they have a chance to pull off a huge upset.

LSU is shooting 9-25 for the half, while WVU is shooting 8-21 right now. However, the Mountaineers have done much better on the boards, outrebounding the Tigers 15-14.

KEY STAT OF THE HALF: Turnovers. WVU committed 10 of them in the first half, and that's the reason they're down right now to the Lady Tigers.

Bob Starkey's got a tough one this time in his second game as head coach. A ticket to Fresno awaits the winner, and we'll be here for second half coverage from Austin!
