Racer women snap seven-game losing skid with 83-74 win
MURRAY, KY-- The Murray State women’s basketball team ended a seven-game drought Saturday night, by topping EIU, 83-74, at the CFSB Center in Murray.
That would be as EIU would be able to get though, as MSU made 19 of 24 free throw attempts in the final five minutes to seal the win and put an end to a seven-game losing streak. Janssen Starks and Netanya Jackson played a big role in Murray State’s hot free throw shooting as the two combined to go 18-for-20 at the stripe. Starks sank a career-high 11 of 12 free throws on Saturday, while Jackson tied her career high for made free throws by going 7-for-8.
Bianca Babic led Murray State on the night with 17 points, 15 of which came by way of the 3-point shot. Jessica Winfrey and Jackson led the Racers on the boards, as they each pulled down a team-high six rebounds to go along with 15 and 11 points, respectively. Starks added two field goals to her 11 free throws to finish with 15 points, while Taylor Porter rounded out the five Racers in double figures with 11.
