Truman State women fall to Quincy 79-75

The Quincy (Ill.) Lady Hawks scored six of the final seven points after Truman took a 74-73 lead to win 79-75 in the inaugural Great Lakes Valley Conference game for the Bulldogs. Nicole Gloor led Truman with 16 points.

The Bulldogs (6-2; 0-1 GLVC) trailed by as many as 16 points and by 10 at half before storming back in the second half. Gloor scored 14 of her 16 points in the second period and her basket with 3:14 left gave Truman the lead.

Gloor picked the pocket of Hannah Weedman for a steal but could not extend the lead as her shot came up short. Lucy Cramsey missed for the Lady Hawks (6-0; 1-0 GLVC) but Felisha Loggins grabbed the offensive rebound and was fouled.

Loggins made one of two free throw to tie the game then picked up her own steal and converted on the fastbreak to put Quincy up 76-74 with 1:39 left.

Following a timeout, the Bulldogs had a costly turnover which eventually led to two made free throws by Cramsey to make it a two possession game. The Lady Hawks were efficient from the charity stripe hitting 25-of-31 attempts on the night.

Cramsey notched a double-double for the undefeated Lady Hawks with 17 points and 10 rebounds while Weedman led all scorers with 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting.

Gloor led four Bulldogs in double figures with her 16 followed by Amy Briggs' 15 and 10 apiece by Courtney Strait and Michalina Tomczak.

The Bulldogs will be off until December 18 when they conclude non-conference play with a road game at Pittsburg (Kan.) State University.
