Physical UIS stops Robert Morris in women's basketball

The University of Illinois Springfield’s aggressive play earned the Prairie Stars more fouls than they would have liked, but it also earned them a much-needed 60-47 win over Robert Morris University in a non-conference women’s basketball game Tuesday at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

“What Coach (Chad) Oletzke tries to instill in us is toughness, especially on the defensive end,” UIS junior forward Elizabeth Kelly said. “At times, I don’t know if we were as intense as we want to be, but I know it’s something we’re working to improve on because we think it will be one of the best ways to help us win games this year.”

It was the first victory of the season for the Prairie Stars (1-3) and their first contest in 10 days.

The win was featured by the State Journal-Register on November 28, 2012.
