The Lady Rams held a ten-point advantage after one quarter, but struggled offensively over the final three in a road loss to the Lady Tigers.

Elesha Foster was the only ASU player to score in double figures. She had 11 points, while Tyra Thompson snatched 12 rebounds.

The Lady Rams had 27 turnovers leading to 18 Tuskegee points in the loss. ASU also shot 5-22 from three-point range.

The loss drops Albany State to 2-18 overall, and 1-9 in SIAC play.

Both teams are back in action Saturday at Fort Valley State.
