Getting off the schneid

All it took was a little "D" to end a month of D-mise.

The IPFW women's basketball team (5-10, 3-2 Summit League) limited Western Illinois to 37 percent shooting, blocked five shots, made six steals and scored 18 points off 17 turnovers en route to a 73-54 rout of the Leathernecks in Memorial Coliseum today. Anne Boese scored 20 points and broke a 15-year-old Summit League record for career 3-pointers by bottoming a three with 1:06 to play in the first half, and Erin Murphy scored 12 of her 18 in the second half to help put Western away.

The Mastodons outscored Western Illinois 28-14 across an 11-minute span in the second half to turn a five-point game into a runaway.

"We had five of six games on the road, (so) we knew it was gonna be a tough stretch for us," IPFW coach Chris Paul said. "Now, I didn't think we'd lose all six of them, but we did.

"But to the kids credit, we continued to work. We had a great week of practice and what we focused on was we're 2-2 in the conference, we lost a couple on the road,. and now we've got to come back home and hold serve.

"We came out with that intensity and that sense of urgency tonight from the start and I'm just really proud of how hard they played."
