Martin leads DePaul women past Illinois St
NORMAL, Ill. – Sophomore Jasmine Penny scored a career-high 20 points to help No. 21 DePaul beat Illinois State 73-54 on Monday night.
Anna Martin also scored 20 points while Megan Rogowski added 11 for DePaul (11-2), which played again without starting forward Keisha Hampton. The senior has been sidelined the last two games with a leg injury.
She also missed Friday's game against Arizona State, ending a run of 113 consecutive starts.
Marley Hall scored 14 points and Katie Broadway added 11 for Illinois State (5-5).
DePaul led 36-22 at the half after a lackluster start that saw ISU pull within five with 14:21 left. Two consecutive 3-pointers by Rogowski sparked a DePaul 8-0 run that helped seal the victory.
The Blue Demons will meet Southern Illinois at home on Thursday.
