Six University of Southern Indiana women's basketball players scored at least six points Thursday evening as the Screaming Eagles dropped Saint Joseph's College, 79-48, in their Great Lakes Valley Conference East Division opener at the Physical Activities Center.
The Eagles (12-1, 4-1 GLVC), who shot 50.8 percent from the field and 51.6 percent in the opening period, used an 11-0 run to jump out to a 13-6 advantage five minutes into the contest. Junior guard Stephanie Carpenter (Salem, Illinois) scored the final nine points of the run, including the rare four-point play that gave USI its first lead of the contest.
Carpenter scored 14 of her career-high tying 22 points in the first eight minutes and had 16 points at the break as USI never relinquished the lead. Junior forward/center Anna Hackert (Evansville, Indiana) scored 11 of her 19 points in the opening period as the Eagles forged a 41-32 edge at the intermission.
The Eagles relied on their defense in the early stages of the second half as they extended their cushion to 16 with 16 minutes to play. The Eagles held the Pumas scoreless for the first 4:21 of the second half and to just 16 points in the final 20 minutes as they ran away with the victory.
Junior guard Aubrey Minix (Grovertown, Indiana) scored nine of her career-high 12 points in the final period as the Eagles cruised to their ninth win in as many tries at the PAC. In reaching double figures, Minix became the ninth USI women's basketball player this season to notch at least 10 points in a game.
Defensively, the Eagles forced the Pumas into 17 turnovers and held them to just 29.3 percent from the field (17-of-58), including 18.5 percent in the second half. USI out-rebounded Saint Joseph's, 46-33.
The Eagles were sharp from long range as they went 10-of-23 (.435) from behind the arc—by far their most prolific effort of the conference season. Carpenter, who was 8-of-15 from the floor, drained a season-high tying five three pointers, while Minix was 4-of-6 from long range.
Hackert, who was 8-of-9 from the field, pulled down a game-high eight rebounds, while sophomore guard Libby Ogden (Tipton, Indiana) dished out a game and career-high six assists. As a team, the Eagles had 23 assists and just 15 turnovers.
USI, which is receiving votes in the USA Today Sports Division II Top 25 Coaches' Poll, returns to action Saturday at 1 p.m. when it hosts No. 5 University of Indianapolis. The Greyhounds (11-2, 4-1 GLVC) lost to Kentucky Wesleyan College, 67-61, Saturday at the Sportscenter in Owensboro, Kentucky.
