#7 Ferris State pulls away late for ninth consecutive win this season

The Ferris State University women's basketball squad, which is ranked seventh nationally, overcame a stiff challenge from visiting Michigan Tech on Saturday (Feb. 3) and pulled away late for a 63-54 triumph over the Huskies inside FSU's Jim Wink Arena.

The Bulldogs won their ninth consecutive game and stayed unbeaten at home this year, moving to 7-0 in Big Rapids, with the win to complete a regular-season sweep over Michigan Tech. FSU also improved to 16-2 overall and stayed on top of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) standings with a 10-1 league mark.

Senior forward Chloe Idoni produced a double-double with a team-leading 21 points and 15 rebounds in the win. She also added three steals, two assists and two blocked shots in the game.

Along with Idoni, junior Kenzie Bowers notched 10 points and five assists for FSU while senior guard Mallory McCartney chipped in eight points, seven assists and four rebounds in the triumph.

Ferris State trailed by one at the end of the opening quarter before taking a slim 30-29 halftime lead. However, MTU tied the game back up after three periods, but FSU limited the Huskies to only seven points in the final period to garner the win.

Overall, Ferris State shot 39% for the game and went 10-of-23 (43.5%) from long range in addition to seven-of-12 (58.3%) at the free throw stripe. The Huskies converted 42.3% of their field goals and made eight-of-23 (34.8%) shots from behind the three-point arc. MTU finished two-of-four (50%) at the free throw line.

Ferris State finished with a 36-34 rebounding edge and the Bulldogs came away with 12 offensive rebounds, leading to a 9-6 margin in second chance scoring. The Bulldogs also earned 13 points off of 17 MTU turnovers and finished with only 10 turnovers of their own.

Michigan Tech got 15 points from Alex Rondorf and 13 by Isabella Lenz in falling to 10-9 overall and 6-5 in league play. MTU had won four of its previous five games entering the tilt.

Ferris State will return to the floor on Saturday (Feb. 10), visiting Lake Superior State for a 5:30 p.m. (ET) league matchup in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.
