Milwaukee, WI -- The Beloit College Women's Basketball team racked up their first win of the 2010-11 season in a 96-41 win over Mt. Mary College on Tuesday night.

The Buccaneers dominated both halves as all 14 players who saw court-time scored.

Beloit took over the game early, breaking away from a 4-4 tie less than three minutes in with a 22-0 run over the next eight minutes to build a 26-4 advantage.  They led 49-18 at the half.

The other big run of the games started with 4:41 left in the first half and Mt. Mary within 31-15.  From that point until 15:44 remained in the game the Bucs outscored MMC 35-5 to grab a 66-20 lead. 

The Buccaneers coasted to the finish for not only their first win of the season but the first career win for head coach Scott Schleis.
