Carlsen: 'I think we had some good looks, and the ball just didn’t fall. The game is like that.'
DeKALB – Courtney Woods converted a layup to give Northern Illinois a one-point lead with 4:18 remaining in a Mid-American Conference tournament first-round game against Eastern Michigan.
Unfortunately for the Huskies, they didn’t score another field goal for the rest of the game, as the Eagles ran past NIU, 84-77, on Monday night at the Convocation Center.
NIU concludes its season at 15-15.
“I think we had some good looks, and the ball just didn’t fall,” NIU coach Lisa Carlsen said. “The game is like that. Sometimes you get a good look, really that’s what you’re hoping for. … I really thought it wasn’t so much our execution, it was just the ball didn’t fall.”
