RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. - The Northwest Missouri State women's basketball team dropped a non-conference game 87-68 to Arkansas Tech. An Andrea Dill jumper gave Northwest a 40-39 lead to start the second half, but Arkansas Tech would counter with an 11-0 run and never look back.

The loss drops Northwest to 4-2 and its the seventh straight victory for Arkansas Tech.
