Benedictine's women's basketball team found itself in an early hole versus the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and never recovered in a 54-50 home Northern Athletics Conference (NAC) loss. The Eagles fell to 3-5 overall and are 1-2 in the NAC. Benedictine trailed 28-18 at the half after shooting just 19 percent from the floor. BU surged in the second stanza, closing to within two points, 52-50, with 26 seconds remaining, but could get no closer as the Raiders converted their free throws. Blair Erickson was Benedictine's lone scorer in double digits with 10 points. Erickson also had a game-high four assists and four steals. Lidia Arias had a team-leading 12 rebounds to go along with her nine points. Monika Krozel also had nine points, and six rebounds. The Eagles will next be in action Saturday at Edgewood College (2:00 p.m.) in Madison, Wis.
