Late scoring drought hurts Eagles in loss

at Central Missouri (1-0): 58
Southern Indiana (0-1): 47
Box Score

WARRENSBURG, Mo.The University of Southern Indiana women's basketball team led 43-42 late in the game, but a scoring drought that lasted nearly five minutes was too much for the Screaming Eagles to overcome as they lost to the University of Central Missouri, 58-47, in their regular-season opener Wednesday evening.

During the scoring drought, the Jennies used a 10-0 run to build a 52-43 lead with less than a minute to play in the contest.

USI (0-1), which played without the services of senior guard Katie Thiesenhusen (Muskego, Wisconsin) and junior guard Missy Glaser (Evansville, Indiana), used a 7-0 run to end the first half and claim a 23-20 lead at the intermission. The Eagles built their lead to six throughout the first five minutes of the second period, but UCM (1-0) used an 11-2 run to claim its first lead (33-32) of the second half.

The Jennies built their lead to as many as four, but a 7-2 run gave the Eagles a 43-42 lead with 5:37 to play in the game.

UCM got a game-high 23 points out of Lindsey Maple, while Kim Battle led the Jennies with eight rebounds.

The Eagles return to action Tuesday when they open up their regular-season home schedule with the University of Illinois-Springfield. Tip-off is slated for 5:15 p.m.
