SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Akunna Elonu made a pair free throws with 3 seconds left to cap UTSA's come-from-behind upset victory over No. 24 Western Kentucky 64-63 on Saturday, snapping the Lady Toppers' 14-game winning streak.

Alexis Govan made a pair of free throws to give Western Kentucky a 63-62 lead with 7 seconds left. UTSA's Mannasha Bell then drove to the right baseline and was hurt while drawing the foul from Ileana Johnson, leaving the game-winning free throws to Elonu.

Western Kentucky answered with a jumper, but it was ruled late after an officials review to seal it for UTSA (9-10, 4-3 Conference USA).

Bell finished with 10 points and 10 boards for the Roadrunners, who outrebounded the Lady Toppers 43-27.

Govan scored 22 points to lead Western Kentucky (17-3, 6-1), which led by as many as 16 points in the second half before UTSA took a 62-60 lead with 1:36 left.
