HALFTIME: Northern Michigan 27, Ferris 20
Northern made a little bit of a late surge, near the end of the first half, to take a 27-20 lead into the halftime break. NMU is only shooting 37.5 percent from the floor, but is being led by its star guard, Kelsey Deacon, who has 12 points. For the Bulldogs, Caitlin Hutchison and Teghan Thelen each have five points in the game. FSU is hitting only 25.9 percent of its field goal attempts through the game's first 20 minutes. Tough-luck shooting and 10 first-half turnovers has helped fuel the Wildcats' 10-point lead in a huge game for the Bulldogs to stay in the hunt for the GLIAC playoffs.
