Woollacott's Career Day Lifts NIU Past Buffalo


Rockford Lutheran graduate Abby Woollacott had her best on-court performance for the NIU women's basketball team on Saturday, pulling down a career-high 13 rebounds in an 86-84 overtime victory over Buffalo in DeKalb.

Woollacott hauled in a big defensive rebound with her team up 85-84 in overtime, and sank one of two free throws before helping the Lady Huskies make one final defensive stop to preserve the win in the extra period. The former Lady Crusader standout added 6 points and 4 steals off the bench.
