Women's Basketball Uses Balanced Attack To Down Wright State, 70-54
Feb. 14, 2004
Fairborn, Ohio - One of the benefits of having a deep basketball squad is the ability to count on any person at any given time.
University of Illinois at Chicago women's basketball coach Lisa Ryckbosch has that luxury as five players scored eight or more points, led by 14 points from freshman guard LaShonda Grant, as the visiting Flames picked up the 70-54 Horizon League victory over Wright State at the Nutter Center on Saturday afternoon.
"It was a very balanced effort tonight," Ryckbosch said. "We've known for awhile that we have a lot of weapons and everyone had a chance to contribute today."
With the victory, UIC improves to 11-13 on the campaign and 5-8 in Horizon League action, while the Raiders fall to 6-17 overall and 3-10 in conference play.
UIC dominated the boards on Saturday afternoon, as they outrebounded Wright State, 43-31.
Wright State's Rhea Mays led the Raiders with 11 points, while teammates Jeanette Woodberry and Brittney Whiteside each added 10 points.
The Flames will be back in action on Thursday night, as they will host UW-Milwaukee at 7:00 p.m. at the UIC Pavilion.
