Martin, Roehrig perfect combo vs. Lincoln

Box Score

MARYVILLE, Mo.-Shelly Martin hit five three-pointers and had a team-high 17 points to lead Northwest Missouri State to a 77-61 win against Lincoln Friday at Bearcat Arena. The Bearcats (8-2, 4-2 MIAA) have won four in a row.

Northwest center Kyla Roehrig was the perfect compliment to Martin. Roehrig scored 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting and pulled down 12 rebounds for her third double-double this season. Roehrig has had double-digit rebounds in five of her last seven games.

Vivian Essuon had 19 points and 12 rebounds to pace Lincoln (1-9, 0-6), which has lost all nine games since a season-opening win against Rockhurst. Essuon was the only Blue Tiger to reach double figures. The rest of her team was 16-of-46 from the field (35 percent).

Lincoln jumped out to an early five-point lead and it was 16-16 halfway through the first half. Martin and Roehrig single-handedly outscored Lincoln 15-11 the rest of the half and the Bearcats led 43-27 at the break.

Northwest was 7-for-13 from beyond the arc in the first frame and 10-for-20 for the game. Martin finished 5-for-7. It's the second time Martin has made five treys in a game this season.

The lead was 68-38 following Martin's fifth 3-pointer with nine minutes remaining. Northwest's starters sat the rest of the way.

It was the first game in nearly two weeks for both teams. Northwest wraps up a three-game homestand Wednesday against Missouri Western.
