RIVER FOREST, Illinois – The MSOE women's basketball team was limited to just 26.5 percent shooting in a 57-39 loss to Dominican Wednesday evening at Igini Sports Forum.
The Raiders (7-8, 5-6 NACC) shot under 30 percent in a game for the first time this season and were unable to catch up with the Stars (10-6, 6-5 NACC) after a slow start.
Hannah Currant led all scorers with 12 points off the bench for Dominican. Alisha Markley added 11 points.
MSOE went just 2-for-15 from the field in the opening quarter in falling into a 15-6 hole after 10 minutes. When shots started to fall in the second quarter, when the Raiders were a robust 6-for-11, the Stars caught fire at the same time. They also hit half of their shots in the period to limit the comeback opportunities.
Dominican led 31-19 at halftime and held the scoring edge in each of the four quarters in posting the win.
The Red & White finished just 4-of-15 from three-point range and posted a 9-for-15 mark at the free throw line. The hosts finished the night shooting 40.7 percent with a 3-for-9 effort from beyond the arc. The Stars were also an efficient 10-for-14 at the charity stripe.
The Raiders return to action Saturday, hosting Concordia Chicago.
