Hitting shots in the second half proved to be a tough proposition for the Augustana College women’s basketball team on Saturday night.

Even with some serious shooting issues, the Vikings made a fourth-quarter charge that ultimately fell short in a 69-54 loss to Millikin at Carver Center.

A very competitive, back-and-forth first half ended with Millikin leading 34-30.

After half time, the hosts made just eight field goals and shot 27%.

For the game, Augie was only 4-for-26 (15.4%) from 3-point range.

“I think his pressure just got us into some rushed situations and we took bad shots when we should have made an extra pass or two,” Augie’s coach Mark Beinborn said after his club fell to 5-2 overall, 1 -1 in the league. “That was a combination of them and the pressure they put on us and we just didn’t make the right decisions.”

And that made it difficult to make any kind of serious threat against the defending league champions.

“I think we came out with very good defensive intensity,” said MU coach Olivia Lett, praising each of their individual highlights.

Playing without senior standout Bailey Coffman at least through the end of the calendar year, the Big Blue have relied on their defense, allowing just 59 points per game.

Matayia Tellis and Macy Beinborn each scored 11 points to lead the Vikings.

Guard Presley Case led Augie’s rebounding effort with nine as the Big Blue held a 46-33 lead on the glass.

MU All-American Elyce Knudsen lived up to her bill with a game-high 26 points to go with eight rebounds. Emily White added 14 off the Millikin bench.

“Millikin is a great team and they have the best player on the court almost every night they play,” coach Beinborn said. “How many shots did she have that we didn’t contest? Not many and she hits 26.… She was kicking contested fadeaways with one hand to her face and she hits 26 and we’re not making shots. Credit to her.”

Augie pulled within 54-46 with just over five minutes to go, but Big Blue (5-3, 2-0 CCIW) stopped that run on 3-pointers by Elyce Knudsen and Emily White to move the margin back to 14 and effectively close the vikings
