The Tigers wrap up the conference schedule 4-8 with two non-conference games remaining before play-offs begin.

"The first half was close and then the Sting turned up the defense and scoring in the second half," said coach Dale Henrich. "We really had trouble with their press in the second half, causing us to turnover the ball 11 times."

The Sting outrebounded the Tigers 35-19.

"Our shooting percentage was good at 50 percent, but we only got 16 shots off during the game."

Katie Holzheimer led the Tigers with 11 points.

The Sting's Emily Baker broke a school record for career rebounds adding 13 for a total of 723. The old record of 716 was set in 2000.
