They say all good things must come to an end. In the case of the Eagles women's basketball squad, its five-game winning streak came to a screeching halt on Tuesday with a 68-59 Northern Athletics Conference loss at Wisconsin Lutheran College. A tight game at the half - WLC led by a 27-26 score - opened up in the second segment when the host Warriors shot 54-percent (14-26) from the field in that half. Conversely, Benedictine shot just 33-percent (11-22) after the intermission. BU's Tamika Curtis led all scorers with 26 points, hitting 12-of-18 shots from the floor. She also had 16 rebounds and two blocks. It was also Curtis' seventh double-double of the season. Dana Sullivan added 14 points, connecting on four-of-11 from long range. Amanda Burditt had 10 points, seven boards and a team-leading three assists. With the three assists, Burditt moved into the #9 spot on the Eagles' career assists list with 218 "helps" in her four-year career.
