Box Score

Chicago, Ill. - The University of Illinois at Chicago women's team rebounded from a 14-point first-half deficit, but were unable to sustain the short lead as the Chicago Challengers held off the Flames for the 82-77 exhibition victory at the UIC Pavilion on Tuesday night.

Dejeanette Flournoy paced the Flames offensive attack with a double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds. All 12 of Flournoy's boards came in the second half.

UIC also received impressive performances from both sophomore point guard Chrissy Dizon (13 points, 4 assists) and junior forward Chastity Quinn (11 points, 7 rebounds).

"There were a few bright spots," UIC Head Coach Lisa Ryckbosch said. "I was, however, disappointed with our defense.

"They scored 82 points and we'd like to hold opponents to 60 points," Ryckbosch continued. "We obviously fell short of that."

Chicago forward Roslyn Turner led five Challengers in double-figures with 19 points, followed by Ashley Berggren (14 points), Kina Brown (13 points), Jamie Lewis (13 points, 11 rebounds) and Marilyn Bishop (11 points).

UIC will open the regular season on Monday, November 24th as they will host the Eastern Illinois Panthers at 7:00 p.m. in the UIC Pavilion.
