HALFTIME: Michigan Tech 31, Ferris 27
We're officially at halftime in the women's contest between the Bulldogs and Huskies and MTU is clinging to a four-point lead, 31-27. Neither team has shot the ball particularly well as Tech is shooting 37.9 percent and the Bulldogs are a little better at 44 percent. MTU has hit a couple of 3-pointers (just 2-0f-11) while the Bulldogs have yet to connect on a shot from downtown (0-of-3). The leading scorer at the half for Ferris is Ashley Fleming with nine points (doing most of her work in the paint) while Teghan Thelen has been heating things up from the perimeter with eight points. For MTU, Katie Wysocky (one of the team's numerous stars) has 10 points to lead everyone while Lisa Staehlin has come off the bench to add seven.
