WBB: All Hands on Deck

WBB: All Hands on Deck

The contributions came from everywhere in the UNI Panthers’ first women’s basketball game of the season Wednesday at the McLeod Center.

Karli Rucker had 22 points during a 95-63 win against North Dakota State on a night when all 11 Panthers who played recorded at least three points. Of UNI’s 95, 42 came from the bench.

Besides Rucker, four other Panthers were in double figures: Kam Finley (13), Megan Maahs (11), Nicole Kroeger (10), and Kristina Cavey (10).

At 29-for-59 from the floor, UNI was just a basket short of shooting 50 percent for the game. Ten of the made attempts were from three-point range.

UNI raced to a 24-8 lead in the opening quarter, and it didn’t get much closer from there.

The Panther women get back to action Saturday on the road against Wichita State.
