PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico -- Poor shooting again doomed the University of Montana women's basketball team, which fell 68-52 to Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday in the team's final game of the Caribbean Challenge.

The Lady Griz shot just 31.5 percent, and went 6 for 34 (.176) from 3-point range.

The Lady Griz (2-4) have now shot less than 34 percent in five of their six games this season. Montana has gone 1-4 in those games.

"We're just looking for anybody to make a couple of shots. It's frustrating," UM coach Robin Selvig said.

"The girls are playing hard, and I actually think we played pretty good this trip, but it doesn't feel very good when you don't make any shots."

Montana's bench outscored its starters 27 to 25, with the five starters combining to make just seven baskets between them.

Senior Jessa Loman Linford and freshman Jordan Sullivan came off the bench to hit seven of their nine shots, with Loman Linford scoring a team-high 11 points and Sullivan six.

Shannon Murphy scored 21 points to lead Florida Gulf Coast (4-0).
