Women's Basketball: UIS women’s basketball breaks out of slump

The University of Illinois Springfield women’s basketball team pulled ahead 26-17 by halftime after a dominant second quarter and the Prairie Stars snapped a four-game skid with a 60-48 Great Lakes Valley Conference victory over Missouri-St. Louis on Thursday at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

After falling behind 12-11 early in the second frame, Katelyn Rosner delivered the go-ahead jumper with 8 minutes 26 seconds remaining and teammate Tehya Fortune went on to score eight of the team’s next 13 points for a nine-point advantage at intermission. That included a 3-pointer at the buzzer, assisted by Jasmine Sangster. A pair of Lauren Ladowski free throws expanded the Stars’ lead to 34-19 with 6:41 left in the third quarter.
