The University of Illinois Springfield women’s basketball team made it two wins in a week with a 70-59 victory Saturday against Lindenwood-Belleville at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

UIS won 74-50 on the road against Oakland City on Wednesday.

The Prairie Stars (3-4) took control in the second half to win back-to-back games for the first time this season. Bergerud’s layup with eight minutes remaining started a 13-0 run that put the Stars ahead 70-55. Lindenwood-Belleville (7-8) went nearly seven minutes without scoring and only had one field goal in the final 8:15.
