Deuces are wild in USI victory

@#8 University of Southern Indiana (18-4, 11-3 GLVC): 90
University of Missouri-St. Louis (7-13, 4-10 GLVC): 67


Deuces were wild on Saturday night as the eighth-ranked University of Southern Indiana womenís basketball team out-gunned the University of Missouri-St. Louis, 90-67, at the Physical Activities Center. USI raised its record to 18-4 overall and 11-3 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, while UMSL fell to 7-13 overall, 4-10 GLVC.

On 2/2/02, USIís number 22 was the difference the contest. Sophomore forward Jessica Stuckman (Quincy, Illinois) was a perfect 12-of-12 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line for 35 points, one short of tying a career-high. Stuckmanís perfect 12-of-12 from the field set a new USI single-game record, surpassing Eileen Weberís near perfect 14-15 (.933) against Kentucky Wesleyan College in 1998.

Another deuce was posted by senior guard Jasmine Moore (Chicago, Illinois). Moore dropped in 22 points on 8-of-11 from the field, 4-of-4 from beyond the three-point arc.

Moore and Stuckman were joined in double digits by senior center Kim Witkowiak (Milwaukee, Wisconsin). Witkowiak had a season-high 10 points and a career-high six rebounds.

With the victory, USI remains in second place in the GLVC, a game behind Northern Kentucky University and a half-game ahead of Bellarmine University. NKU defeated Lewis University, 70-54, this afternoon, while Bellarmine defeated Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, 87-61.

Next week, the Eagles face a two-game road trip, playing SIUE Thursday, February 7, at 5:30 p.m. and Lewis University Saturday, February 9, at 1 p.m. USIís final homestand of the season will feature Saint Josephís College on Thursday, February 14, and the University of Indianapolis on Saturday, February 16.
