“We were together the whole way through and it just shows how much we’ve grown since the beginning of the season and how much we stuck with it and came out on top,” Doss said.

Doss would lead the Norse on the day with her season high of 25 points. Shar’Rae Davis followed tying her season high of 14 points. Christine Roush led with seven rebounds.

Plitzuweit commended her team for their relentlessness throughout the game.

“Our players really committed to finding a way and not hang their head or give in because things weren’t going their way,” Plitzuweit said. “What is really a tribute to their character and to their level is that it sometimes can be easy to hang your head at that point and time and our players didn’t.”

With the win the Norse move to 14-9 on the season and 5-3 in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

NKU next go on the road to take on Florida Gulf Coast University and Stetson University before returning home Feb. 19 against Jacksonville.
