Women's Basketball Falls Short Against Wright State, 58-57
Feb. 12, 2005
Chicago, Ill. - Trailing by two points and less than a minute remaining, Wright State forward Angie Ott knocked down the game-winning three-pointer to cap off a furious rally from an eight-point, second-half deficit as the visiting Raiders picked up the 58-57 Horizon League victory over the University of Illinois at Chicago, snapping the Flames' eight-game winning streak at the UIC Pavilion on Saturday afternoon.
Wright State freshman forward Whitney Lewis scored all 12 of her team-high points in the second half, followed by Jeanette Woodberry (11 points), Brittney Whiteside (10 points) and Kendra Agee (10 points).
With the victory, Wright State improves to 14-10 overall and 8-5 in Horizon League play, while the Flames drop to 12-12 on the campaign and 9-4 in conference action.
The Flames had two opportunities to win the game in the final five seconds, but were unable to convert, as Lewis swatted away a Krystal Hugelier lay-up and sophomore guard LaShonda Grant's off-balance jumper at the buzzer went array.
UIC will be back in action on Thursday evening, as they will travel to Wisconsin to take on UW-Milwaukee at 7:00 p.m. in the Klotsche Center.
