SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The No. 1 ranked Drury Lady Panthers suffered their first loss since March of 2019 Tuesday, falling to visiting Rockhurst 75-69.
With the loss, all of the following Lady Panther streaks were broken:
– 42 straight wins

Rockhurst started the game with a 21-2 lead behind a trio of threes while Drury shot just 3-15 to start the game.
The Lady Panthers did battle back multiple times, pulling the score even at 55-55 in the 4th quarter thanks in big part to 28 points from Paige Robinson.
