WHITEWATER, WI  (UWSP)  -  The UW-Stevens Point women's basketball team couldn't hold onto its eight-point halftime lead as it fell to UW-Whitewater, 65-59  Box Score After getting out to an early 2-0 lead the Pointers fell behind the Warhawks, trailing by as many as six points, until Sam Barber(Schofield, WI/D.C. Everest/Winona St.) knocked down a three pointer to put UWSP up 20-18 with five minutes left in the first half. UWSP never trailed again in the period, taking a 28-20 lead into halftime. The Warhawks battled their way back, using a 9-0 run to jump in front of UWSP 58-52 with 2:57 left in regulation, and ultimately sealing the victory. Barber tallied her second double-double in as many games by scoring 19 points and pulling down 10 rebounds, both game-highs. Liz Althoff (Darien, WI/Clinton) also reached double-figures in scoring for UWSP, chalking up 11 points. Kaitlyn Thill led the way for the Warhawks with 14 points. UWSP will host No. 25 UW-Superior Saturday, Jan. 26 in Berg Gym at 5 p.m.
