Wed. Final: MU Women 67, Cincinnati 61
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Angel Robinson scored a game-high 17 points and had six assists as Marquette edged Cincinnati 67-61 on Wednesday.
Krystal Ellis added 15 points and Jessica Pachko had 14 for the Golden Eagles (15-11, 6-6 Big East).
Jill Stephens and Shanasa Sanders each led Cincinnati with 16 points. Angel Morgan had nine points and led all players with eight assists.
Marquette led by as many as 15 points in the second half, in part because Cincinnati (13-12, 3-9) couldn't get to the free-throw line.
The Golden Eagles were 12-of-15 from the line, including 9-of-11 in the second half. But Cincinnati shot only five free throws in the game, hitting three, including its only attempt after halftime.
Marquette led at halftime 33-30.
