Cumby would finish the game with three and 11 points, while Alexus Bertrand was 3-for-3 on 3-poitnter and also finished with 11 points. The Patriots, which led 43-20 at halftime, had 21 games last season with double-digit 3-point performances as a team.

Dia Evans would score 11 points for her third straight double-digit scoring performance to go along with grabbing six rebounds, while Carissa Spiker went for 10 points to give the Patriots five double-digit scorers against the Mountaineers who fall to 1-6 on the season. The Patriots were 44.8 percent on 3-pointers and finished the game shooting 34-for-61 (55.7 percent) from the field while limiting SU to 29.8 percent.

May also surpassed the 900-point milestone in the game and now has 913 career points in 103 games as a Patriot. She is ninth all-time in scoring for the program and is 185-for-480 on 3-pointers during that time.

UT Tyler will return to American Southwest Conference play at 1 p.m. on Monday against LeTourneau in Longview. The Patriots are 2-2 in ASC after earning wins over Hardin-Simmons and McMurry in their last two conference games.
