The Ashland University women’s basketball team has improved its record to 22-0 on the season and 14-0 in conference play after a 94-60 win on the road against the Hillsdale Chargers.

After starting the contest with stellar three-point shooting in the first half, the second half saw them make 17 and just one shy from the program record of three-pointers in a contest at 18.

To start, the Eagles outscored the Chargers 33-15 with the elite offense showcased by the Eagles. The Eagles had 21 of their 33 points come from beyond the arc.

Heading into the second quarter, the Eagles slowed down offensively only recording 22 points while the Chargers remained consistent with another 15-point quarter.

Although the Chargers showed consistency, their 30 points at halftime were not enough to keep the contest close as the Eagles led by 25 points.

The second half would remain relatively similar with the Eagles outscoring the Chargers in each quarter, and they continued to rain down three-point shots.

Forwards Zoe Miller and Annie Roshak scored 16 points apiece shooting three of three from beyond the arc. Graduate guards Hallie Heidemann and Maddie Maloney knocked down seven three-pointers combined and added 27 combined points.

The team finished with 54% from the field and 49% from beyond the arc. They still currently lead Division II in multiple statistical categories but sit first in field goal percentage and three-point percentage.

They now look to take on the Lake Erie Storm on Saturday, Feb. 4, with tipoff set for 1 P.M.
