Win worth the wait for UIS women

The University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars waited and then waited some more for their first women’s basketball game of the season.

After practicing and scrimmaging against each other for more than 34 days, the Stars had their urge to play quenched Wednesday. UIS welcomed the Robert Morris University Eagles to The Recreation and Athletic Center. The end result was a 78-58 non-conference victory for the Stars.

“It felt good to finally get on the floor,” UIS sophomore guard Alex Blair said. “It was a long preseason, but it just gave us time to work harder and prepare.”

The win was featured in an November 19, 2009 article in the State Journal-Register.
