         QUINCY, ILL. -- Southern Illinois University Edwardsville shot 70 percent in the second half and surged past Quincy 80-75 Saturday in women's college basketball action.
         SIUE picked up 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting from Amber Shelton to lead all scorers. With a strong second-half effort, SIUE shot 61.9 percent for the game.
         The Cougars, 16-5 overall and 9-4 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, joins Drury in first place after Saturday's play. The two teams will face off this Thursday in Springfield, Mo., with the winner taking over sole possession of first place in the GLVC West Division.
         SIUE Coach Wendy Hedberg picked up some much-needed offense from guards Amy Austin and Allison Fogle. Both hits three three-pointers, including key shots in the waning minutes of the game. Austin finished with 15 points while Fogle added 14.
         Julianne McMillen had perhaps the best night from the field, hitting 7 of 9 shots for 17 points.
         Quincy, 13-8 overall and 6-7 in the GLVC, hit eight three-pointers in the first half but led by only five points at 38-33 by halftime. SIUE countered by shooting 54 percent in the first half, led by Shelton's 7 of 11 effort in the first 20 minutes.
         The Hawks picked up 18 points from Alex Wisser, who recorded four three-pointers. Shaquita Crawford followed with 17.
         SIUE battled to the lead nearly seven minutes into the second half when Fogle converted the first of her three-pointers to tie the scorer 48-48 with 13:33 to play. Fogle's other three-pointers gave SIUE another tie at 58-58 and the lead for good with 3:44 to play.
         Whitney Sykes, who leads the nation in free throw percentage at better than a 95 percent conversion rate, hit all six of her attempts, including four in the final 34 seconds of the game.
