Bradley Rebounds Over Women's Basketball, 83-67|
Nov. 24, 2004
Chicago, Ill. - Bradley used a strong effort on the boards in the second half, recording 15 offensive rebounds and 20 second-chance points in the stanza, to earn the 83-67 come-from-behind, non-conference victory over the University of Illinois at Chicago women's basketball team at the UIC Pavilion on Wednesday night.
Bradley center Dena Williams (12 rebounds) led five different Braves players in double-figures with 18 points, followed by Erika Nelson (14 points), Amy Fuller (12 points), Amy Peters (12 points) and Genny Mueller (11 points).
UIC turned in an impressive performance in the opening frame, rebounding from an early nine-point deficit to take a 32-30 lead over the Braves entering the intermission.
"I just think we didn't come out with the same edge in the second half as we did in the first half," UIC Head Coach Lisa Ryckbosch said. "Certainly the offensive boards contributed to that and I didn't think our defensive intensity was where it needed to be."
With the victory, Bradley improves to 2-0 on the campaign, while the Flames fall to 0-2 overall.
UIC will be back in action on Friday evening, as they will take on Arkansas-Little Rock in the opening game of the SEMO Tournament at 5:00 p.m.
