Rebounds kill sixth-ranked Eagles in 84-72 loss at Quincy

#6 University of Southern Indiana (4-2 overall, 1-1 GLVC): 72
@ Quincy University (4-1 overall, 2-0 GLVC): 84


The sixth-ranked University of Southern Indiana women’s basketball team was out-rebounded 41-25 as it lost at Quincy University, 84-72, for the second consecutive season. The Screaming Eagles lost at Quincy, 80-72, last season.

Sophomore forward Jessica Stuckman (Quincy, Illinois) led USI’s scoring attack with 24 points while junior center Africa Sherrod (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida) dished in 21 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Senior guard Jasmine Moore (Chicago, Illinois) finished with 12 points.

USI went into the locker room with a 36-35 halftime lead, but a 63.6 percent shooting percentage saw the Lady Hawks build a 57-49 lead, midway through the second frame. USI used a 7-0 run to bring it within a point at 57-56. However, after a Quincy timeout, the Lady Hawks put together a 9-0 run to give them a 66-56 lead with eight minutes to go in the contest.

The Eagles cut the Quincy lead to six on two separate occasions, but could not get any closer as they fell to 4-2 overall and 1-1 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

For the game, USI shot 42.9 percent from the floor and 69.6 percent from the line. USI’s performance from three-point land was dismal as the Eagles were two-of-13 for 15.4 percent from behind the arc.

Quincy’s Lisa Farrell led all scorers with 27 points while Jill Unnerstall followed with 23 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.

USI will open its 2001-02 GLVC home schedule this Thursday, November 29, as it hosts Lewis University in a 5:15 p.m. tip. The Eagles will finish the week as they host the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in a 1 p.m. start. Both games are at the Physical Activities Center.
