In the first “Play4Kay” game at the university since 2015, the Lady Lions basketball team fell to the University of New Orleans Privateers 58-61.

Ayla Guzzardo, head coach for women’s basketball, discussed what went wrong in the match.

“We held on for most of the third and fourth quarter, but could not finish it deep down the stretch,” explained Guzzardo. “We had too many turnovers and did not shoot the ball well. If we would have had 10 less turnovers, we would have been fine.”

Despite the loss, athletics raised $1,070.55 for the Kay Yow Fund to fight cancer.
