Lady Rockets come back to beat NIU in MAC Tourney

The Toledo Rockets women's basketball team are headed back to the MAC semi-finals after coming from behind to beat Northern Illinois, 72-62 on Thursday.

UT trailed by 10 points in the first half, but rallied behind 24 points from sophomore Andola Dortch to earn a re-match with Eastern Michigan on Friday.

"I need to do whatever I need to do for my team. If it's me coach has been getting on me about shooting, so that's what I've been doing," Dortch said with a smile in the post game press conference.

Toledo lost to Eastern last year in the same round. Tip-off is set for 2:30pm.
