The Northern Kentucky University women’s basketball team looks to rebound from a tough road trip tonight when they face Youngstown State 7 p.m. tonight at BB&T Arena.

The last time the two teams met, the Norse shot 58 percent from the field and 50 percent from the three-point line in a 88-77 win at Youngstown State.

The Norse are now 8-8 in the Horizon League and are sixth in the Horizon League after losing to Milwaukee and Green Bay last week. The Norse struggled from the field in each game, shooting 33 and 26 percent respectively in those two games. They also had 33 turnovers in those two games. Christine Roush led all scorers in both games, scoring 33 points combined in both games.

The Norse defense continued to play well, forcing Milwaukee into 21 turnovers and holding the Green Bay offense to 33 percent shooting.

Youngstown State has won three out of their last four games and are fifth in the Horizon League standings. The Penguins average 66 points per game and shoot almost 40 percent from the field as a team. Sarah Cash leads the team in scoring, averaging 14.7 points and adding 7.4 rebounds per game.

With a win tonight, the Norse would be tied for fifth place with Youngstown State in the Horizon League standings and would give the team momentum going into the final game of the season on Saturday against Cleveland State.
