The UIC Flames entered Tuesday night’s matchup riding a 4-game losing streak, they looked poised to break their losing streak against Youngstown State but the Penguins proved to be too much for them.
Despite a close first half, UIC looked lost in the 2nd. Turnovers and three pointers hurt the Flames and the Penguins went on a 17-2 run and they never looked back.
The Flames did try to mount a comeback but their efforts proved to be effortless and whenever they tried to get their offense going, the Penguins would hit a big shot or the Flames would turnover the ball.
UIC senior Kelsey Barlow led the Flames with 17 points, but Penguins’ guard Kendrick Perry led all with 23 points.
