Print Article

Jim Franz/Beloit Daily News Shelby Kline of Beloit College (11) drives on St. Norbert’s Carley Frauenhoff Wednesday night. The former Hononegah standout had 25 points, but Beloit fell to the visiting Green Knights.

BELOIT — Shelby Kline netted a career-high 25 points and helped Beloit College offset falling behind 16-3 in the first quarter against St. Norbert Wednesday night.

The Buccaneers indeed made a game of it against perhaps their biggest nemesis.

In the end, however, the Buccaneers couldn’t end the Green Knights’ domination in the series. SNC won 67-58 to post its 16th straight victory over Beloit.

The Green Knights have won 35 of the past 37 meetings with the Bucs and lead the overall series 55-16.

This one looked like it might be a different story as Beloit put together a 20-1 run in the first six minutes of the second quarter and led by as much as six points.

SNC surged back in front before Kline’s three-pointer, her fourth of the half, tied the game at 32-32 heading to the break.

The Bucs shot 75 percent (12-16) in the second quarter and 61.9 (13-21) for the half.

There were six lead changes in the third quarter. A late 5-0 run by the Green Knights put them up 47-43 heading to the fourth.

There were two ties in the final quarter, including 53-53 with 4:02 left. SNC ended the game with a 13-8 run, however, with seven points coming at the free-throw line.

The Bucs shot 45.8 percent (22-48) while SNC was at 46.5 (20-43). The Green Knights converted 22-of-30 free throws.

Kline had three steals to go with her offensive explosion. Laura Panicali added 14 points and Julia Moll had four assists and three steals. Jaylan Dunn led the Bucs with five rebounds.

Beloit will try to snap a six-game skid when it heads to Illinois College for a 1 p.m. tipoff on Saturday against former head coach Jennifer McCormick. Posted In
