After jumping out to an early edge, 13-12, Georgetown College women's basketball could not keep pace with a hot-shooting Northern Kentucky University (5-2) team Wednesday evening.
The Norse began to find range in the final 10 minutes of the first half, hitting six threes, and breaking the game open 45-23.
The No. 21 Tigers (9-2) never quit, pulling back within 10 several times in the second half, but could not overcome their own slow shooting night - 27.1 percent from the field - and turnovers (18).
"It was good for us to go up to Northern Kentucky and take on a team like that," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "Of course we had hoped for a better result, but it was a good experience for us to see areas we need to work on against a non-conference opponent. NKU is a great team and when they got hot there wasn't a whole lot we could do to slow them down. It took us out of our game a bit and we never fully recovered.
"I was proud to see them continue to battle and can only see good things coming out of playing an NCAA D-II school as we advance deeper into our season."
Andrea Howard led the way with 15 points, while Devon Golden chipped in with 12. Devanny King led on the boards with eight rebounds and Golden grabbed seven. GC as a team pulled down 35 rebounds, much fewer than its season average of 50.4 going into Wednesday's game.
