Benedictine University's women's basketball team took one on the chin at rival Aurora University on Saturday afternoon, dropping a 78-57 decision. The loss dropped the Eagles women's team to 12-6 overall and 8-4 in the Northern Athletics Conference. Aurora also did something no other team had been able to accomplish this season by holding BU's Tamika curtis to under double figures in points for the first time in 18 games this season. Curtis finished with nine points, but led all rebounders with 15 boards. She also had four assists and four steals. Dana Sullivan and Tiffany Hardy each had 11 points for Benedictine. Lauren Zuro added 10 points and five rebounds.
