The UW-Parkside women’s basketball team outscored Trinity International (Ill.) by 21 points in the second half in a 75-58 non-conference victory on Tuesday night at the DeSimons Gymnasium.
Ranked No. 18 in the latest USA Today/ESPN Division II coaches poll, the Rangers (3-1) won their 21st consecutive home game.
Trailing 34-30 at halftime, Parkside faced a 40-32 deficit in the opening minutes of the second half before mounting a comeback.
The Rangers ripped off a 13-1 run to take their first lead since midway through the first half and never looked back.
Brittany Beyer, who sat out most of the first half due to foul trouble, scored 15 of her game-high 21 points in the second half.
Jadee Rooney added 18 points and eight assists and Amy Selk had 13 points and six rebounds. Danielle Slivka came off the bench and contributed 10 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 25 minutes.
“We pushed some buttons at halftime and the kids responded,” UWP coach Jenny Kenesie said. “Getting Beyer back in was a boost offensively and obviously Danielle gave us a lot of energy. I also thought Kaitlyn (Bettiga) and Jadee played much better in the second half defensively and gave us better leadership.”
It was the first career double-double for Slivka, a sophomore from Johnsburg, Ill.
“Danielle played really well today,” Kenesie said. “The most exciting thing is how consistent she’s been so far. Obviously it’s early in the year but she’s gaining confidence every game and gave us some huge minutes tonight.”
Parkside, which shot 62 percent in the second half (16-of-26), held the Trojans to just seven points in a 15-minute stretch in the second half.
The Rangers continue their eight-game homestand with a key regional game against Grand Valley State 1 p.m. Saturday.

It was a busy weekend for DeAndre Johns.
After helping St. Joseph beat rival Shoreland Lutheran 28-22 in overtime on Friday night, the junior running back-free safety woke up at 4 a.m. Saturday and traveled with his cousin, St. Joseph freshman Matthew Brown Jr., to take part in the two-day John Lucas Midwest Invitational in Louisville.
The football rivalry between St. Joseph and Shoreland Lutheran added a dose of drama to its short history on Friday night.
The teams squared off in their first overtime game with St. Joseph prevailing, 28-22, at Shoreland. The Metro Classic Conference co-leading Lancers have now won six of the nine meetings against the Pacers. In addition, they were also awarded another victory by forfeit in 2013.
