The UWGB Women's basketball team beat UIC Monday night 65-31 at the Kress Center.  Jessica Lindstrom carried the water for the ladies with 18 points and 13 rebounds in a win that the team needed in order to keep their conference championship hopes alive.

The Phoenix also got some help in their quest for a 19th consecutive conference championship.  Wright State, who was two games up on UWGB in the Horizon League standings, was beaten 85-80 on the road at Detroit Mercy.  The Wolves now lead the Phoenix by a single game.  UWGB will travel to Wright State on Friday and could pull even with the Wolves with a win.  

UWGB and Wright State each have just two games remaining on the conference schedule.
