Just a few short weeks ago, the West Texas A&M women's basketball team was undefeated and ranked number two in the nation.


Since then, the Lady Buffs' have been headed in the other direction.

Lexy Hightower and Madison Parker combined for 36 points but it wasn’t enough Thursday night as Eastern New Mexico handed the Lady Buffs their third straight loss, 73-71 in overtime at the First United Bank Center in Canyon.

It’s the first time since the 2001-2002 season the Lady Buffs have lost three straight and the first time in program history they have lost three straight LSC home games.

Parker finished with 19 points and Hightower had 17 but WT falls to 15-4 overall and 7-4 in the LSC.

- The WT men’s team had five players hit for double figures in an 82-63 win over Eastern New Mexico. David Chavlovich led the way with 18 points, while Ryan Quaid and Jordan Evans scored 14 each as the Buffs move to 18-2 on the season and 8-2 in the LSC.
