GREENVILLE, Ill. - The women's basketball team completed their first loop through conference play with a dominating 80-55 win over Eureka in the SLIAC "Game of the Week" on Wednesday.
In the second quarter, Greenville maintained their lead and pushed the advantage to 37-32 at halftime. Ashley Anderson provided eight points for Greenville in the opening half.
Throughout the first five minutes of the third quarter, the Panthers went on a 19-6 run to take a 56-38 lead and force a Eureka timeout. However, the timeout didn't help the Red Devils, and they only scored two more points in the quarter as GU outpaced them 30-8 over the period to end up on top 67-40 after three quarters.
In the final period, the Panthers scored 13 points and allowed 15 points by the Red Devils, but it was inconsequential in Greenville's victory.
Stephen ended with a team-high four assists and four blocked shots.
The Panthers (10-6, 7-2 SLIAC) go to Westminster for a game on Saturday at 1 p.m. as they look to extend their winning streak to seven.
