Full game recap and stats here
Player of the Game - Angela Rodriguez. With starting point guard Sammy Theut under the weather and limited to just four minutes, A-Rod took the reins of the offense. She picked up a career-best 10 assists to go with 12 points for her first collegiate double-double. It was also the program’s first points-assist double-double since 1997.
Turning Point - 16:02/second half. Rodriguez had just put UWM ahead, 40-39, with two free throws. At this point, Taylor Foulks hit the first of 2 three’s during a 10-2 run that pushed UIC ahead for good.
Stat That Mattered - 19-9 TO’s. Milwaukee committed 10 more turnovers than UIC and the Flames outscored UWM, 19-6, on points off turnovers.
The Notebook - Rodriguez is the first Panther with 10 assists in a game since Markita Barnes had 10 Jan. 17, 2009 … her points-assist double-double is UWM’s first since Jen Greger March 1, 1997 (16/10) … Lindsay Laur surpassed Daryl Schaffeld for eighth in school history with 1,312 career points … the double-double was her league-leading 11th of the season and her fourth of 20/15 this season – a school record … Laur’s school-record free throw streak ended at 49-straight in the first half … Rodriguez played all 40 minutes for the fourth time this season … in a statistical quirk, UWM is now 0-8 when exactly 3 players reach double-figures this season … the Panther are 5-2 when 4+ do and 4-4 when two do … Laur played in her 116th career game, second in school history (Traci Edwards, 125) … Rodriguez now has 49 made three-pointers this season, tied for second-most in school history for a freshman … Laur scored in double-figures for the 71st time in her career, fourth-most in school history … she has had 10-or-more points in a game 15-straight times out, the fifth-longest streak in school history … the last time UWM had two players with double-doubles in the same game was Feb. 18, 2010.
