Kent State 63, Northern Illinois 60: The Huskies took Kent State to the wire but came up short in Mid-American Conference Tournament quarterfinal action.

NIU’s Kortney Drake made a career-high five 3-pointers and scored a career-high 17 points. Sidney McCrea added 11 points, six rebounds and three assists. Laura Nickel had 10 points and a season-high five assists off the bench.

“I told our players after the game that I was super proud of the effort,” NIU coach Lisa Carlsen said. “We played Kent State early in January, and it was pretty lopsided. Tonight really showed the growth we’ve made as a team. We left it all on the floor and got beat by a really good Kent State team. Obviously, not the result we wanted, but I’m definitely proud of the effort.”

The Huskies closed the season with a 15-16 record.
