The fourth-seeded Wolfpack (21-10) got as close as 57-55 on a layup by Kate Kevorkan with 4:41 left.

But Jasmine Bendolph hit a 3-pointer with 3:24 to go that gave Louisiana Tech a 60-55 lead to seal the game.

Bendolph finished with 10 points for Louisiana Tech and Kiara Young added 14.

Tahnee Robinson led the Wolfpack with 23 points while Johnna Ward and Kayla Williams each added 10.
