DE PERE, Wis. — The St. Norbert College women’s basketball team broke out of its two-game shooting slump in a big way on Tuesday and rolled to an 87-31 Midwest Conference victory over Lawrence University at Schuldes Sports Center.
St. Norbert, losers of two straight in which they had hit just 1 of 33 3-point attempts, shot 56.5 percent from the floor and connected on 9 of 16 (56.3 percent) from beyond the arc.
Megan Doody paced St. Norbert (13-6, 10-4 MWC) with 15 points as she went 5-for-5 on 3-pointers. Doody also added a game-high 10 assists. Morgan Heim also had 15 points for the Green Knights.
Amber Lisowe led Lawrence (1-17, 0-13) with eight points. The Vikings had a frigid shooting night and hit on only 11 of 51 (21.6 percent) shots from the floor. Lawrence went 0-for-13 from 3-point range.
St. Norbert grabbed control of the game early by racing to a 14-0 lead. Lawrence didn’t score until Patsy Kealey’s jumper with 14:48 left in the first half. Lawrence did not score again until Kealey hit another jumper at the 7:33 mark, but St. Norbert had built a 29-4 advantage.
The Green Knights led 47-12 at the half, and St. Norbert would lead by as many as 60 points in the second half.
