DE PERE - St. Norbert College shot just shy of 67 percent in the first half and used that as the spark behind a 95-59 rout of Beloit College in a Midwest Conference game on Connie Tilley Court at Schuldes Sports Center.

The Green Knights (16-4, 15-0 MWC) made 22 of 33 field-goal attempts in the first 20 minutes to build a whopping 54-25 halftime lead. St. Norbert won for the 43rd time in the last 44 games against a Midwest Conference foe and for the 15th consecutive time in the series with Beloit.

St. Norbert needs just one win in its last three games to clinch at least a share of its 14th Midwest Conference title and its sixth in the last seven years.

The game opened with a fast tempo, with St. Norbert leading just 19-17 just over seven minutes into the game. The Green Knights got a 3-pointer from Rachel Hagge and three points from Mallory Nickerson the rest of the first quarter to lead 25-19 after 10 minutes.

St. Norbert used a big 29-6 scoring bulge in the second quarter to blow the game open. The Green Knights used a 19-2 run over the first 5:38 of the second quarter to take a 44-21 lead. Regan Carmichael, who had three 3-pointers in the first quarter, scored the first four points of the second quarter. Nickerson added another hoop for a 31-19 lead at the 9:02 mark of the period.

Following a Beloit basket, St. Norbert went on an 11-0 run to turn a 31-21 lead into a 44-21 advantage. Stephanie Weigman had a pair of hoops during the skein, which was finished by another Carmichael triple.

Beloit (7-13, 5-10) would get no closer than 28 points in the second half.

Carmichael finished with a career-high 23 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. Weigman added 18 points, while Nickerson finished with 14 points and Jill Kleiman 10 points, six assists and four rebounds.

St. Norbert shot 55.6 percent (35-for-63) from the floor for the game and outrebounded the Buccaneers 40-24.

Beloit shot 35.3 percent (18-for-51) from the floor. Lana Wieseman led the Buccaneers with 19 points.
