Eastern Michigan women's basketball blown out, U-M volleyball tops Northwestern and more Friday results
In a span of five days, the Eastern Michigan women’s basketball team experienced both ends of a blowout.
Friday night’s loss at No. 23-ranked Wisconsin-Green Bay wasn’t as lopsided as the Eagles’ 110-31 win over Marygrove on Monday -- but lopsided nonetheless.
The host Phoenix led 50-20 at halftime and cruised to an 84-53 win in front of 1,618 fans at the Kress Events Center in Green Bay, Wis.
Tavelyn James scored 26 points for Eastern Michigan (2-1), which made just 25-percent (17-of-68) of its shots. Paige Redditt scored five points and pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds for the Eagles. (Boxscore)
Julie Wojta scored 23 points to lead Wisconsin-Green Bay (3-0). Stephanie Sension (16 points), Adrian Ritchie (14) and Lydia Bauer also scored in double-figures for the Phoenix.
