The Northern Illinois women's basketball team lost its season opener, 78-44, at Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Amanda Corral led the Huskies with 12 points, reaching double figures in scoring for the 39th time in her career. Alex Dumoulin and Alicia Johnson each added eight.

“Defensively, we had spurts where we were really good and it takes a lot of work to play the way we want to play,” NIU head coach Kathi Bennett said in a news release. “If we get that energy consistently, we’ll be ok. This offense needs all five people playing hard all the time and when we don’t fight to the front and we don’t put ball pressure on, we’re going to get hurt.”
