Women's basketball hit scoring highs in win against Madonna

The Falcons head into the holidays with a big win over Madonna University - 91-41.

With their highest point total all season, the team put up a united front led by Noelle Yoder with 14 points. Yoder's efforts tied her season best point total, which she achieved early in the season against Evansville. Jessica Slagle and Danielle Havel contributed solid performances with 13 points apiece. All of the 12 Falcons saw playing time, and added points to the board.

BG out rebounded the Crusaders 60-27 and shot 44.6 percent from the field compared to the 29.8 percent effort from Madonna. After this win, MU falls to 5-6 going into the new year, where it puts the Falcons at 8-3, tied for the best record in the Mid-American Conference with Miami University.

Despite the fifty point margin between the Falcons and the Crusaders, Kaylee McGrath led her team with 16 points and nine rebounds, followed by Becca Wojcinski and Megan Murphy who had six points each.

The Falcons are off for the holiday, but will resume their schedule and play their last two non-conference games on the road before the year ends. BG will match up with Wyoming on Dec. 29 at 7p.m. Mountain Time and then head to Colorado State on Dec. 31 with a one day prep for their game scheduled for 1p.m. Mountain Time.
