Updated:

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. --- The Pittsburg State women's basketball team fell on the road to Northeastern State, 65-50, Wednesday (Jan. 23) at the Jack Dobbins Field House.

Lizzy Jeronimus led the Gorillas (12-5, 6-3 MIAA) with 18 points. Alexa Bordewick Drew Roberts added nine and eight points, respectively. Morgan Westhoff finished with seven points, all of which came in the first half. Y'Cedria Devers led PSU with nine rebounds.

The Gorillas trailed by just four points at intermission, but an 20-8 run to start the second half would leave Pitt State playing from behind the rest of the game. The run lasted over 13 minutes and proved to be too large of a deficit as the Riverhawks worked up to a 16 point advantage.  PSU shot just 2-of-10 from the field during the first 10 minutes of the second half.

Pitt State shot .302 (16-53) from the floor, including .258 (8-31) from distance and .667 (10-15) from the foul line. The Riverhawks (12-5, 7-2 MIAA) in the second half shot .500 (13-26) from the field, including .714 (5-7) from behind the arc. Northeastern State outscored the Gorillas 22-12 in the paint and 16-11 in second chance opportunities.
 
Tosha Tyler finished with a game-high 19 points and Taylor Lewis added 17 for NSU.  

During the first half the first half the Gorillas led by as many as six points before the Riverhawks were able to put together a run to give themselves a 28-24 halftime advantage.
