TERRE HAUTE, Indiana — After a close, low-scoring first half, Indiana State’s offense warmed up in the second half Friday night to defeat the NKU women’s basketball team 58-38.

It was a struggle for both teams in the first half, especially in the second quarter. The Norse (0-1) outscored Indiana State (1-0) 6-3 in the second quarter. The game was tied at 17 at the break.

Indiana State finally got its offense going in the third quarter, outscoring NKU 26-9 to take a 43-26 lead going into the fourth.

The Norse couldn’t mount a fourth quarter rally, as they were outscored 15-12 in the final quarter.
