DE PERE, Wis. -- The Lawrence University women's basketball team fell behind early Wednesday, and St. Norbert College went on to a 69-46 Midwest Conference victory at the Mulva Center.
Macie Zurfluh led St. Norbert (11-13, 10-7 MWC) with 15 points, and Sarah Ratajczyk had a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds.
Lawrence (6-17, 3-14) trailed 12-11 after four consecutive points by Benjamin, but the Green Knights pulled away over the final five minutes of the opening period. St. Norbert went on an 11-2 run to grab a 23-13 lead after one quarter.
St. Norbert maintained that 10-point edge at the half, and the Green Knights really didn't start pulling away until the final seconds of the third quarter. Olivia DeCleene hit a 3-pointer to give St. Norbert a 49-34 lead after three, and Lawrence never got closer than 15 points in the fourth.
