YSU WOMEN Perugini hits mark in loss



Published: Fri, January 7, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.


The Penguins' Jen Perugini eclipsed the 1,000-point mark Thursday.
CHICAGO -- Youngstown State senior Jen Perugini became the 16th player in school history to score 1,000 career points and recorded her seventh double-double of the season with 16 points and 11 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as the Penguins dropped a 56-48 decision to Illinois-Chicago.
The Flames (4-10, 1-2 Horizon League) used a 16-4 run to open the second half and held the Penguins (6-7, 1-2) scoreless for seven minutes to pull ahead 37-25 with 12:44 remaining.
After two 3-pointers from Barb Fabianova and a trey from Cathy Hanek, the Penguins trimmed the deficit to 41-34 with 8:12 remaining. Freshman Lauren Branson then sliced the Flames' lead to five, 41-36, at the 7:23 mark.
UIC's Krystal Hugelier, who made six 3-pointers, extended the Flames' cushion to 44-36 but Branson buried a 3-pointer of her own to bring YSU within 44-39.
The Penguins got within four points, 48-44, after a Hanek 3-pointer at the 3:27 mark, and 50-46 after two Perugini free throws with 2:49 remaining.
Hugelier made her sixth 3-pointer of the evening at the 1:50 mark and Amber Washington's layup with 1:05 to go sealed the outcome.
Early lead
In the first half, the Penguins jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead with 16:31 remaining after a jumper from Barb Fabianova and two baskets by Cathy Hanek.
UIC, which did not make a field goal until the 12:31 mark of the half, used a 13-0 run over the next six minutes to take a 13-6 advantage with 9:40 remaining.
Perugini took over, scoring 10 straight points for YSU, and Hanek's 3-pointer at the 4:23 mark capped a 13-0 run to give the Penguins a 19-13 lead.
UIC, however, made two 3-pointers in the last 2:32 to key an 8-2 run and tie the score, 21-21, at the intermission.
The Penguins close their four-game road trip against Wright State on Saturday. Tipoff is slated for 1 p.m.
