Women’s Basketball: John Carroll 68, ONU 66

UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS — John Carroll used a 13-2 run midway through the fourth quarter to overcome a 7-point deficit and upset No. 15-Ohio Northern 68-66 on Saturday afternoon at the DeCarlo Center.

The Polar Bears fall to 20-3 overall and stay on top of the Ohio Athletic Conference with a 14-2 record, while the Blue Streaks improve to 6-17, 4-12.

Senior Amy Bullimore (Morrow/Little Miami) scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds and sophomore Emily Mescher (Maria Stein/Marion Local) scored 16 points and grabbed six rebounds to lead ONU.

Nicole Huffington led JCU with 21 points, including a 3-pointer with 28 seconds left in the game to break a 64-all tie and give the hosts a 67-64 lead.

Bullimore made a pair of free throws with 19 seconds left to pull ONU within 67-66 and the Polar Bear defense forced a turnover with 12 seconds to go.

Northern got the ball to Bullimore, but her shot inside with seven seconds left was off target. JCU would grab the reboubnd and make a free throw with four seconds left to make it 68-66.

The Polar Bears were not able to get off a shot as time expired.

Ohio Northern made 23-of-59 field goal attempts for 39.0 percent and was 5-of-14 from 3-point range for 35.7 percent, while John Carroll was 26-of-56 from the floor for 46.4 percent and made 8-of-21 three-pointers for 38.1 percent.
