TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
The No. 25 ranked UT Tyler women's basketball team set a new record for wins in-a-season with 19, defeating American Southwest Conference-foe Concordia 71-61 on Thursday. The Patriots are now 19-3 this season, and 17-2 in conference.
The Patriots (19-3, 17-2) and Tornados (10-12, 8-11) played close throughout the first half, but UT Tyler grabbed a 30-21 lead with 4:35 left in the half.
Concordia would not go away, fighting back over the remaining four minutes to close the Patriots' lead to 36-33 at the half.
UT Tyler opened the second half on a 13-2 run, going up 49-37 just four minutes into the second half.
The Tornados were able to close the UT Tyler-lead to just six points, 61-55 with 6:07 left, but the experienced Patriots were able to take control, eventually winning 71-61.
Humphrey was consistent through the night, hitting 10-of-14 shots, including three-of-four from the charity stripe.
Freshman Madison Wilson was finished with 13 points and a team-high seven rebounds, while Brittany King added 10 points and seven rebounds.
The 19 wins for the Patriots topped the record set last season in head coach Kevin Baker's first season, as the Patriots went 18-9 a year ago.
UT Tyler also tied the mark for conference-wins in a season with 17, with three games remaining on the regular-season schedule.
The Patriots will honor the four seniors on the team, playing their last home game of the season on Saturday against Mary Hardin-Baylor at 1 p.m.
