Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University women's basketball squad picked up its second consecutive Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) road win on Thursday (Jan. 9) night as the Bulldogs topped Northwood 75-64 at Riepma Arena in Midland.

The host Timberwolves built a 19-13 lead at the end of one period, but FSU broke the game open by outscoring the Timberwolves 20-6 in the second frame along with a 25-21 margin in the third en route to the win.

With the victory, FSU improved to 9-5 overall this year and evened its GLIAC mark at 3-3 on the year.

Freshman forward Chloe Idoni had a huge game for the Bulldogs as she finished eight-of-nine shooting from the floor while compiling 21 points and 16 rebounds in a double-double effort.

In addition to Idoni, the Bulldogs received a game-high 22 points from junior guard Adrienne Anderson along with 12 points off the bench by Samantha Krauss. Senior forward Riley Blair added 10 points as four FSU players reached double-digits in scoring.

FSU shot 43% from the floor and made six-of-15 (40%) from long range in addition to 19-of-25 (76%) at the line.

Defensively, Ferris State held Northwood to only 37% shooting, but the Timberwolves did sink 11-of-31 (35.5%) from beyond the three-point arc and went seven-of-12 (58.3%) at the line.

The Bulldogs owned the glass by a 43-35 rebounding margin and came up with 14 offensive boards.

Northwood was paced by Ellie Taylor's 20 points, but she was the lone NU player to reach double-figures as the Timberwolves fell to 2-12 on the year.

Ferris State will continue its five-game GLIAC road swing on Saturday (Jan. 11) as FSU visits Saginaw Valley State for a 1 p.m. (ET) league tilt in University Center, Mich.
