San Antonio, TX -- The No. 1 ranked Clayton State women's basketball team's season came to an end Tuesday at the NCAA Division II Elite Eight, falling 81-68 to #24 Augustana in San Antonio, TX on the campus of St. Mary's University.
Augustana led 32-25 at halftime of the game before exploding in the first seven minutes of the second half to take control of the game at Bill Greehey Arena. The Vikings went on a 24-8 run to open the period and took a 23-point lead, 56-33, on a three-pointer by Ashley Johnson with 13:08 remaining in the game.
The Lakers made a furious comeback late in the second half to cut it to single digits but were unable overcome the early second half deficit. The loss ends a historic season for the Lakers, which entered the game on a 32-game winning streak, the best in school history.
