WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. - The Northern Michigan women's basketball team used a commanding 27-7 second quarter to triumph the Quincy Hawks 82-56 on Sunday at the Waterpark Capital of the World. 

Northern saw all 10 who entered the game find the net in the contest, with Makaylee Kuhn leading the way on an efficient 20-point, 11-rebound double-double. She shot 8-13 from the floor and added three steals.

Alyssa Nimz tied a career-high with 11 points, all coming in the first half before foul trouble. Nimz wasn't the only 'Cat to hit a career-high, as Reide Osterman recorded 10 points, all in the final quarter, on 4-6 shooting with a pair of threes. Jacy Weisbrod chipped in 11 of her own backed by three triples. 

The 82 points was the second best output for Northern this season. The 'Cats shot 32-70 (45.7%) from the field while holding Quincy to 21-59 (35.6%). NMU forced the Hawks into 18 turnovers while only giving the ball up eight times themselves, leading to a 21-7 tripling in points off turnovers. NMU also dominated off the bench, with 42 points coming from the reserve unit. 

Northern had the helping hand in full effect throughout the contest, assisting 19 times, one off of their season-high. Eight Wildcats recorded an assist, with Mackenzie Holzwart's six and Braelyn Torres' four leading the way.  

The 'Cats improve to 7-3 on the season with the victory, while dropping the Hawks to 4-8.
