CHICAGO — The NKU women’s basketball team never trailed Thursday night, cruising to a 72-61 victory at Illinois-Chicago.

After leading by five at the end of the first quarter, the Norse (13-8, 5-5 in Horizon League) outscored the Flames (11-10, 2-8) 21-11 in the second quarter to take a 41-26 lead into the locker room

Northern Kentucky led by as many as 20 in the third quarter before UIC mounted a charge to cut its deficit to single digits at 54-45 in the final minute of the period.

However, it would be the only substantial run the Flames would make. The Norse kept its lead between 8 and 14 points for the entire fourth quarter.

Christine Roush led NKU with 18 points. Kasey Uetrecht had 16 points and 6 rebounds. Molly Glick added 15 points.

Kendyl Nunn led the Flames with 18 points. Ruvanna Campbell had 13 points and 15 rebounds.

The Norse will look to wrap up a perfect four-game road trip 2:30 p.m. Saturday against Valparaiso. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3.
