NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tiffin women's basketball trailed by just three at the end of the first quarter, but could not hold down the offense of Trevecca Nazarene and fell 95-67 on Thursday night.
Trevecca Nazarene was able to build an eight-point lead early after both teams were in the bonus less than four minutes into the opening quarter.
Ali Schirmer knocked down a triple with just under two minutes left in the period to cut the deficit to four, and Sarah Cummings hit a jumper in the lane with 13 seconds on the clock to draw closer at 27-24 after ten minutes of action.
The second quarter was not kind to Tiffin, however, as Trevecca outscored TU 25-9 in the period to take a 52-33 lead into halftime.
Allie Miller was able to cut the deficit to 14 late in the third quarter with a layup that made it 68-54, but that was as close as the Dragons would get as TNU led by as much as 30 before taking the 28-point win.
Tiffin will now venture over to Owensboro, Ky. to take on the Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. EST.
