Women's basketball: Alma stops Beavers

The Bluffton University women's basketball team dropped a 67-61 decision at Alma College on Monday, Nov. 12, in the 2018-19 season opener. Alma evened its season mark at 1-1 following a 59-45 loss at Oberlin on Saturday.

A fourth-quarter flurry by freshman Brianna Gillig (New Riegel) pulled the Beavers within a point at 60-59 with three minutes to play but Alma outscored the Beavers 7-2 down the stretch to cap off its 67-61 victory. Gillig converted four deuces in just over two minutes, however, an eight-point third quarter proved too much to overcome.
