BOURBONNAIS, IllinoisThe Indiana University South Bend women’s basketball team could not slow the fast-paced offense of the Olivet Nazarene Tigers as they fell 115-77 on Monday evening.

The Tigers forced IU South Bend into 37 turnovers, which resulted in 47 points for ONU.

Four Titans registered double figures led by Maegan Callaway (SR/Mooresville, Ind.) with 14 points.  Freshman Tatyanna Goodson (FR/Niles, Mich.) recorded 13 points in just 17 minutes of action.

Olivet Nazarene, the nation’s top scoring offense at 110 points per game, scored early and often in the first half of action as they sprinted out to a nine-point advantage with 14:05 to play in the half.  However, the Titans kept pace with the Tigers and cut the ONU lead to just one point with a 12-2 run, capped off by a four consecutive points from Goodson to give IU South Bend their first lead of the game.
