    Box Score

    Fort Wayne, Ind. - Freshman guard LaShonda Grant scored a team and career-high 25 points, including a team-season high six three-pointers - all in the second half, to help lift the University of Illinois at Chicago women's basketball team to the 91-68 non-conference road victory over IPFW at the Gates Sports Center on Saturday night.

    "Shonda is a microcosm of where we are as a team," UIC Head Coach Lisa Ryckbosch said. "We are growing and blossoming as a team before our eyes and she is as well."

    UIC finished the contest with a team-season high 12 three-pointers, 10 of which came in the second half. Their previous high of eight three-pointers was set twice this season against both Holy Cross (11/28/03) and Youngstown State (1/29/04). For the game, UIC was 12-for-24 from beyond the arc.

    "Our success offensively is related to how much better we are defensively," Ryckbosch said. "When we play well defensively, we have a lot of energy and flow and when we have that...we have confidence."

    UIC sophomore guard Chrissy Dizon chipped in 14 points, followed by Krystal Hugelier (12 points) and a career-high 11 points from Jacquay Holmes in the victory.

    With the victory, UIC improves to 10-12 on the campaign, while the Mastodons fall to 7-15 overall.

    IPFW's Amy Geralds led the Mastodons with 23 points, including seven three-pointers, followed by Maggie Bruening (15 points) and Verea Bibbs (10 points).

    UIC will be back in action on Thursday, as they will travel to Indianapolis to square off with the Butler Bulldogs in a Horizon League tilt at 6:00 p.m. in the Hinkle Fieldhouse.
