Monmouth set the women’s school record for consecutive home victories, notching their 11th straight with a 62-48 win over Trine University. The Fighting Scots roared to a 17-point first half lead on Claire McGuire’s three-pointer with 6:19 left, but the Thunder wouldn’t give in, cutting the deficit to eight just three minutes later.
Monmouth’s first half surge was keyed by Colleen Forrest’s 13 points on five-of-seven shooting. The Scots regained a 12-point edge, 30-18, at halftime and kept that margin for most of the second half. Forrest finished with 21 points and Zipporah Williams added 10. Haley Jones cleaned the glass for the Scots, pulling down 10 of their 37 rebounds.
