SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) _ RaShonta LeBlanc scored 15 points to help lead Number Nine LSU to a 61-37 victory over Tulsa in the UT-San Antonio Thanksgiving Classic.

The Lady Tigers (6-1) scored the first 26 points after the break to lead 49-14 Friday. The game-turning run began with four straight 3-pointers, two by LeBlanc.

The score was tied 8-to-8 midway through the first half when LeBlanc put LSU ahead to stay with two free throws that started a nine-to-nothing run. LeBlanc then had a steal that she turned into a 3-pointer for the Lady Tigers, who led 23-14 at halftime.

Tulsa (2-2) converted a three-point play in the game's final minute to reach 37 points, only one more than the team's all-time low of 36.

Jamie Dreiling led Tulsa with seven points.
