• Friday, the Bucs put four players in double figures as they shot 42.9 percent (27-63). Kline had 26 points and junior Lauren Glaser chipped in 15. Melissa McLean added 12 points and Candace Cunningham had 10.

Defense was also key as the Bucs allowed only five points in the second quarter and led by 19 at the half, 37-18.

The Bucs were able to extend the lead to as high as 32 (70-38) .

Beloit converted seven three-pointers, including three by Glaser, and outrebounded Grinnell, 43-39. McLean had 10.
