FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The No. 22-ranked Indiana Tech women’s basketball team defeated regional foe Huntington University, 77-50, Tuesday evening inside the Schaefer Center.

The win extends the Warriors winning streak, which dates back to last season, to 20 games.

Erika Foy led the way with a game-high 16 points to go along with four rebounds and three steals while Kyra Whitaker and Alexis Hill each had 15 points.

The former chipped in a game-high six assists and three rebounds while the latter grabbed a game-high eight rebounds.

Bethany Worm added 11 points and eight rebounds off the bench while playing her first game for Tech after battling knee injuries the last two seasons.

The Warriors led from the opening tip as Taya Andrews made her Tech debut with a three-pointer 16 seconds into the game.

The hosts built their lead up to 11-4 over the next three and a half minutes but the Foresters battled back to make it a one-point game at 13-12 with three minutes to play in the first.

A layup from Eileen Salisbury sparked a 10-2 run to end the period with Whitaker nailing a pair of three-pointers in the final minute to cap the run and give Tech a 23-14 lead.

The Orange and Black poured on the offense in the second with a 13-0 lead to extend their advantage to 36-14 while Huntington did not break into the scoring column until the 3:49 mark of the second.

Foy and Hill did most of the damage during the run, combining for 11 of the team’s 13 points during the offensive blitz.

The hosts kept the lead over 20 points for the rest of the quarter and entered the locker room leading 47-24 at the break.

Huntington could not find any answers for the Warrior offense in the second half as Tech shot 48% from the floor while their defense limited the visitors to just 32.4% shooting overall and just 16.7% from behind the three-point line.

The Warriors grew their lead to as many as 28 points in the fourth quarter and never let the lead dip under 20 in the second half as they avenged a season-opening loss to the Foresters a year ago.

Tech (1-0) returns to action Friday with the start of the Warrior Classic, which has seen a few schedule changes.

The Warriors will now take on Cardinal Stritch University at 8 p.m. from the Schaefer Center in a game that will follow a matchup between Indiana Wesleyan University and Governors State University.

The schedule for the weekend is still fluid and will be finalized in the next two days.
