Foul trouble, NKU defense stop Eagles

@Northern Kentucky 62, USI 43

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky.—For the second consecutive game, the University of Southern Indiana women's basketball team got into foul trouble and for the second consecutive game, the Screaming Eagles could not overcome that trouble.

Saturday, Northern Kentucky University (10-3, 4-2 GLVC) used a tough defensive performance and attacked the Eagles defenders as the Norse defeated USI 62-43 at Regents Hall.

USI (10-7, 2-4 GLVC) sent the Norse to the line 39 times—NKU made good on 31 attempts—and shot just 30.2 percent from the field as it fell for the second consecutive time.

The Eagles raced out to a 15-8 advantage in the first half, but NKU countered with a 13-1 run that gave the Norse the lead for good. USI trailed at the break, 29-22, and could not get any closer as NKU held the Eagles to a 25.0 shooting percentage in the second half.

Junior guard Katie Theisenhusen (Muskego, Wisconsin) led the Eagles in scoring for the third straight game as she finished the contest with 18 points. Sophomore forward Jasmine Baines (Jeffersonville, Indiana) was held to just six points as she fouled out for the third straight game.

NKU sophomore center Angela Healy led a balanced Norse attack with 12 points and seven rebounds, while sophomore guard Nicole Chiodi chipped in 10 points and seven rebounds. Junior center Karmen Graham also finished with 10 points.

The Eagles, which are 0-7 when trailing at the half this season, return to action Thursday when they host Quincy University at 5:15 p.m. at the Physical Activities Center. USI is 9-1 at the PAC in 2005-06.
