Turnovers Hurt Bucs in Home Loss

November 17, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Beloit, WI -- The Beloit College Women's Basketball team struggled with turnovers on Saturday afternoon in Flood Arena, leading to a 77-62 loss to Concordia University Wisconsin.

The Buccaneers had 28 miscues for the game, 18 in the opening half to CUW's four.

The Falcons broke away from a 23-all tie with 3:09 left before halftime, outscoring Beloit 12-6 to close the half and lead 35-29 at the break.  After Concordia built their lead to ten just over two minutes into the second half the Bucs put together a 9-2 run over the next four minutes to pull within three at 45-42 on Claire Bush's jumper.  But that was as close as they'd get when the Falcons answered with a 12-2 run of their own to move up 57-44 with 11:28 remaining.  The largest deficit was 17 at 70-53 with 5:48 left.

Lana Wieseman led Beloit with a double-double, scoring 21 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.  Lauren McNanna and Kandace Fox both added 12 points and Bush eight.

The Bucs look to regroup quickly with nationally-ranked Carthage College coming to Flood Arena on Tuesday night.  Tipoff is at 5:00 p.m.
