Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The (3-5) Hawks of Quincy University played host to the (4-5) Wildcats of Culver-Stockton on the ladies college hardwood on Tuesday.

She also averaged over 11 points a game during her senior year in the Gem City. Burgin was also a part of two teams that earned Div. II NCAA Tourney berths.

The Wildcats played hard in the first half against the Hawks, but QU jumped out to a 14-9 lead after the 1st quarter and led 32-24 at the halftime break.

After a fiery motivational pep talk by Coach Burgin, CSC returned to the flood inspired and outscored the Hawks 22-17 at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Culver outscored QU in the 4th quarter 25 to 18 in route to posting a 71-67 exhibition win at Pepsi Arena.

QU fell to (3-6) on the season after the setback. Maddie Spagnola led the Hawks in scoring with 17 pts. She also pulled down 2 rebounds and dished out 4 assists.
