NMU Women can't hit enough outside shots against Ferris State

By  | 

BIG RAPIDS, Mi. The Wildcat women's basketball team fell to the Ferris State Bulldogs, 68-56, Saturday evening in Big Rapids, Michigan.

Trailing by nine at the half, the women continued their fight and looked to close the gap but the Bulldogs proved too much late in the game and were able to pull ahead, a lead the Wildcats could not make up.

With 26 points in the first half, the women shot 35.7 percent from the field but only sunk three baskets from beyond the arc.

Elena Alaix led the team in points through the twenty minutes, sinking five shots for 13 points. She also grabbed four rebounds as the women trailed the Bulldogs 37-26 at the half.

Jessica Schultz led the team in assists with two in the first half.

After being held to just four points in the first half, Jessica Schultz had 10 in the second half for a total of 14 Saturday afternoon and the second-highest point total on the Wildcats.

Schultz also had 10 rebounds in the matchup to secure the double-double.

Makaylee Kuhn was the third Wildcat to post double-digit numbers in the points category, going five of 11 for 13 points.

The women are back home at the Berry Events Center this coming Thursday, February 20, with a 7:30 p.m. contest against Grand Valley State University.
