It was a two woman show Thursday as Tarleton's Bailey Wipff and Mackenzie Hailey came through in the clutch to help the team complete the season sweep over Texas A&M-Kingsville with a 67-53 victory.
The story of the game's first half was the performance put on by Tarleton guard Bailey Wipff.
After six minutes of play, Wipff had scored nine of the TexAnns' 11 points and had matched the Javelinas' production to that point in the contest.
The Tarleton guard then added to her scoring tally in the second period as she scored another eight points, including hitting two three point shots.
In addition to Wipff's contributions, the only other help Tarleton received from their roster was from forward Mackenzie Hailey.
Both Hailey and Wipff combined for 28 of Tarleton's 32 points and helped her team enter the halftime break with an 11-point, 32-21 lead.
The duo's hot shooting continued in the second half as they combined for another 11 points in the third quarter. Wipff scored five points, while her teammate Hailey added six to help the TexAnns enter the game's final quarter leading 48-38.
The fourth quarter was certainly the TexAnns weakest offensive showing of the evening. After eight minutes of play they had only mustered to score nine points. However, the Javelinas also struggled offensively in the final period only scoring nine points up to that point and found themselves trailing Tarleton 57-47.
By that point, it was too late for the Javelinas to make a move as they're efforts to extend the game by fouling failed giving the TexAnns their tenth Lone Star Conference win of the season.
Bailey Wipff finished the contest with a game high 24 points, which also was a career best for the senior guard. Mackenzie Hailey added an additional 21 points.
"We're a selfless team that's always looking for whoever is open. That happened to be me tonight and they did a great job finding me," said Wipff after the game.
With the win, the TexAnns are now 11-10 on the season and 10-5 in LSC play. They'll be back in action on Saturday when they take on Angelo State at 2 p.m.
