ROCKFORD, Ill. – The Regents women’s basketball team started Northern Athletics Conference play 1-0 for the second consecutive year by defeating the Concordia University Chicago Cougars 68-61.  The Regents and Cougars played a very close and exciting game for the entire afternoon with the largest lead for either team coming with 3:10 left in the second half when Rockford led by 8.  Rockford did an excellent job on the defensive end of the floor holding Concordia Chicago to 29.5% shooting from the floor and 20.7% shooting from beyond the arc.  The Regents also forced 19 Cougar turnovers and turned them into 22 points.  Rockford has now defeated Concordia University Chicago in 4 consecutive meetings.

Rockford continues to see excellent play out of its starters, especially senior guard Britney Curry (Merrillville, Ind./Merrillville).  Curry posted her second double-double of the season scoring a game high 21 points and getting 10 rebounds.  She has now scored at least 21 points in all 4 games this year for Rockford College.   Senior guard Nicole Olson (Shannon, Ill./Eastland) scored a season high 14 points and grabbed 7 rebounds.  Olson also made two of Rockford’s three 3-point baskets in the game.  Junior Nicole Lawler (Pearl City, Ill./Pearl City) played a tough game under the basket for the Regents.  Lawler scored in double figures for the third game this year with 11 points and 8 rebounds.  Sophomore forward Jessica Bjerning (Wauconda, Ill./Mundelein) scored in double digits for the second straight game.  Bjerning shot 50% from the floor scoring 10 points and getting 7 rebounds. 

The women’s basketball team will be back in action on Wednesday November 30th when they travel to Aurora, Illinois to face rival Aurora University.  Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m.
