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.
