The Lady Cajuns (6-5) upset the Tulane women's basketball team 65-64 in overtime on a trey by Brandi Schambough with 3.1 seconds remaining in the game to provide the winning margin Wednesday afternoon in Devin Fieldhouse.

The Green wave jumped out by as many as 15 points in the first half, and were on top in the last seconds of regulation and overtime. Sylvana Okde nailed a 3-pointer as the second-half horn sounded to send the game into overtime.

The Ragin’ Cajuns wrapped up the non-conference portion of their schedule going 6-3 against non-conference foes and improved to 5-1 vs. in-state opponents under first-year head coach Garry Brodhead.

Freshman Okde and sophomore Robbie Brown paced a Louisiana lineup that shot 36.1 percent from the floor.

Okde and Brown tallied 23 and 13 points, respectively to lead the Ragin’ Cajuns as freshman Keke Veal chipped in nine. Kia Wilridge dished out a game-high nine assists to highlight the Louisiana attack. Wilridge and Jasmin Mills pulled down a game-high nine rebounds.

The Ragin’ Cajuns return to Sun Belt Conference action traveling to Jonesboro, Ark. on Saturday, Dec. 22 to face Arkansas State at 1:05 p.m. at the Convocation Center on the ASU campus.
