Aces complete road swing with loss at UNI

CEDAR FALLS, IA (WFIE) -

The University of Evansville women's basketball team (11-15, 6-9) was defeated 89-44 at Northern Iowa on Sunday afternoon.

Guard Sara Dickey netted a team-high 10 points for the Purple Aces and the sophomore is now just two points shy of her second-consecutive 500 point season.

Neither UE nor UNI scored over the first 1:36 of the game until a three from Dickey and a jumper by forward Sasha Robinson handed the Aces a 5-0 lead.

Northern Iowa, however, would answer back with the next five consecutive points to tie up the game.

UE responded by going on a 7-1 run to take their largest advantage of the afternoon. Guard Khristian Hart, Dickey, and guard Kat Taylor each scored during the stretch that moved Evansville ahead 12-6 at the 12:55 mark of the first half.

UNI then scored 13 of the next 15 points to take a 19-14 lead with 10:11 to play in the opening half.

Both teams then cooled off as neither school scored over the next 2:16 of game time.

The Panthers did get righted after the drought, ending the half on a 21-9 run and building a double digit lead of 40-25. UNI made eight three-pointers in the opening stanza. UE made 10 field goals in the first half including three from Dickey who had a team-high eight points.

UNI began the second half on a 12-0 run on their way to the victory. The Panthers tied a school record with 17 made three-pointers in the contest.

Forward Mallory Ladd totaled seven points, seven rebounds, and two steals. With two blocks in the game, Ladd now has 60 in her career at UE, eighth most in program history.

Taylor provided eight points off the bench for UE. Hart also added seven points.

Evansville is back at home on Friday, Feb. 27 to host the Indiana State Sycamores. The tip is set for 7:00 p.m. at the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind. It is Dollar Night next Friday as tickets, soda and popcorn will all be available for just $1.
