Kirkland, WA - The Evergreen State women (8-17 overall, 5-11 CCC) had a rough day on the road and added a 65-85 loss to the Northwest University Eagles (10-18 overall, 6-10 CCC).

The Eagles came out and snatched the lead from the beginning and hit the first half break leading 29-39. Coming out in the second, Northwest continued their reign and were able to convert 22 Geoduck turnovers into 32 points.
