EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana women's basketball team shot just 18.2 percent from the field in the second half as it lost to the GLVC East Division-leading University of Indianapolis, 63-56, Saturday afternoon at the Physical Activities Center.
USI (8-13, 3-10 GLVC) overcame a six-point deficit in the second half to tie the contest at 50 with less than six minutes to play in the game, but the Greyhounds outscored the Screaming Eagles, 11-4, in the final four minutes of the contest to pull out the win.
The Eagles, who led by as many as seven in the opening period, shot 40.0 percent in the first half to forge a 35-34 halftime edge. USI extended its lead to 41-39 in the first four minutes of the final period, but the Greyhounds used an 8-0 run to swing momentum into their favor.
