It was a historic night on Thursday at the Berry Events Center, as Makaylee Kuhn connected on a reverse layup in the third quarter to become the all-time scoring leader for the Northern Michigan women's basketball team, as she helped guide the 'Cats to a 76-49 victory over U.P. foe Lake Superior State.

Kuhn triumphed the previous record set by Lisa (Jamula) Maki who held the record for 33 years with 1,699 career points. Kuhn now holds the record with 1,709 points overall as she led all scorers with 18 points on the evening, shooting 8-16 from the field and tacking on eight rebounds.

Jacy Weisbrod (13) and Alyssa Nimz (12) both contributed double figures off the bench. Weisbrod led the way on the glass with 10 rebounds for her first double-double.   

After trailing 14-13 after 10 minutes, the Green and Gold turned it up, outscoring the Lakers 63-35 the rest of the night. NMU held LSSU to a 19-64 (29.7%) shooting clip while they were a much cooler 2-20 (10.0%) from three. The 'Cats also dominated the glass 53-29, with a 11-3 edge on offensive boards.

All 11 Wildcats to enter the contest got on the score sheet and 10 dished out an assist, a season-high. With the win, the Wildcats increased their record to 10-4 overall and 4-1 in the GLIAC.
