A 13-2 run in the first quarter followed by a 10-2 run in the second quarter put the game away early for NKU (6-2).

NKU led 22-13 after one quarter and 41-26 at halftime. The Norse led by as many as 25 with 1:57 left in the third quarter.

The Norse held IPFW to just 34 percent from the floor (19/56). Meanwhile, NKU shot 46 percent from the floor (27/59).

NKU also dominated inside, outscoring IPFW 34-18 in the paint. Thanks in part to Kinch’s 19 points, NKU’s bench outscored IPFW 42-14.

In addition to Kinch’s 19, Shar’Rae Davis had a double-double. She scored 14 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. Christine Roush had 16 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocked shots.
