Updated:

PITTSBURG -- The PIttsburg State women's basketball team (15-7, 9-5 MIAA) had a good shooting night as they shot .556 from the floor overall and .500 from three-point range to earn a 78-60 win over Northeastern State (17-7, 12-4 MIAA) on Saturday afternoon (February 16).

The RiverHawks were held to .383 shooting overall and only .286 from three-point range. Their season three-point shooting typically ranks in the top two in the conference.

Lauren Brown and Lizzy Jeronimus each led the Gorillas with 17 points. Brown added nine rebounds, just one shy of a double-double. Jeronimus added five assists. Alexa Bordewick also scored in double figures with 14 as she was 4-of-5 from three-point range. Morgan Westhoff came off the bench to score 13 points, eight of which came in the first half.

Each team committed 14 turnovers, but Pitt State was able to turn NSU turnovers into 18 points, while the RiverHawks were only able to score nine  of the Gorilla turnovers. PSU also outscored Northeastern State 26-8 in the paint.

The RiverHawks led by five 12-7 with 11:15 left in the first half. Pitt State battled back into the lead and went on an 11-0 run to lead by eight, 24-16 with 5:54 left. The team led by six, 31-25, at the half.

The Gorillas grabbed their first double digit lead on a Bordewick layup with 15:50 left in the game. The largest lead of the game came on a Drew Roberts jumper with 1:34 left in the game giving the game its final 78-60 score.

Pitt State plays its last road games of the regular season next week as they travel to Emporia State on Wednesday at 5:30 and Central Oklahoma on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
