MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — Milwaukee used a strong second quarter Saturday afternoon to defeat the NKU women’s basketball team 72-44.

After leading 22-11 after one quarter, the Panthers (9-4) outscored the Norse (4-10) 19-3 in the second quarter to put the game out of reach.

Milwaukee shot 53.3 percent in the first half (16 of 30), while holding NKU to just 27.3 percent. In the second quarter, the Norse made just 1 of 8 from the floor.

Kasey Uetrecht led the Norse with 19 points. Hayley Combs added seven points. NKU was outrebounded 41-24.
