Thomas helps force OT against Shorter but Lady Rams drop home opener

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The reigning conference Freshman of the Year April Thomas did all she could to bring Albany State back but ASU dropped its home opener to Shorter 53-49 at the HPER Gym.  Thomas had a game high 20 points and buried a flurry of shots in the game's final moments including a three pointer with 8 seconds left to force overtime.

But in the overtime period, Shorter scored three straight times to take a 6 point lead.  Thomas nailed another three pointer to bring ASU within 3 but that's as close as ASU would get.  The 4 point loss sends the Lady Rams to 1-5 on the season.

Albany State will host Valdosta State on December 29th.
