Goodman Shines; PNW Women Fall to No. 1 Ashland, 105-47, on Senior Day

HAMMOND, Ind. – Freshman Bayley Goodman (Fowler, Ind./Benton Central) posted 16 points, but the Purdue Northwest women’s basketball team fell behind early in a 105-47 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) home loss to No. 1 Ashland University (Ohio) Saturday afternoon on John Friend Court at the Fitness and Recreation Center in Hammond, Ind.  Prior to the game, the two seniors on this year’s Pride roster, Jessica Kiser (Noblesville, Ind./Noblesville) and Ellie Michalski (Mukwonago, Wis./Mukwonago), were honored on the court during a special ceremony in recognition of “Senior Day.”   

 

Freshman Taylor Vauters (Rockville, Ind./Riverton Parke) added eight points for PNW and freshman Lanie Allen (East Noble, Ind./East Noble) recorded six points.  In their final home game in a Pride uniform, Michalski tallied five points, four rebounds and five blocks; while Kiser chipped in a team-leading seven rebounds and three steals.         

 

Goodman got the Pride off to a solid start hitting a three-pointer on the game’s opening possession.  However, the Eagles responded with a 22-2 run that helped them take a 26-12 lead into the second quarter.  Ashland continued to extend its advantage in the next period and built a 60-21 lead at the halftime break. 

 

PNW got a lay-up by Michalski early in the third quarter, but the Ashland offense continued to hit its shots to increase its lead.  The Eagles shot at least 50 percent from the floor in each of the first three quarters.  Trailing 86-32 at the end of the third quarter, the Pride got a couple of three-pointers by Goodman to fall to help cut into the big deficit.  Vauters also converted on some lay-ups down the stretch for PNW to provide a late lift.  Sophomore guard Jodi Johnson led Ashford with 20 points and seven assists.   

 

Purdue Northwest (4-19 overall/3-15 GLIAC) heads to Big Rapids, Mich., on Thursday, February 22, for a conference road game against Ferris State University.  The game is scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. CT start at Jim Wink Arena in Big Rapids, Mich.
