NKU women ousted from conference tourney




        EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Repeating as NCAA Division II national champion just became much more difficult for Northern Kentucky University.

        Saturday's 95-73 loss to Southern Indiana in the championship game of the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament assured NKU of having to play on the road in the upcoming NCAA II Tournament. Either Southern Indiana or Michigan Tech will host the NCAA II Great Lakes Region tournament.

        The past two seasons, NKU hosted the NCAA II Great Lakes Region in Regents Hall en route to the Elite Eight. Pairings for the NCAA II Tournament will be announced tonight, and NKU is faced with traveling to either Houghton, Mich., or back to Evansville, Ind.

        Michelle Cottrell (Boone County) led NKU with 25 points and 10 rebounds, and Heather Livingstone added 18 points. Cottrell, who now has 37 career double-doubles, was named to the all-tournament team.
