Many coaches say it is hard to beat a team three times in one season.

How about three times in six days?

The UW-Whitewater women’s basketball team accomplished just that Monday night in the opening round of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament. The Warhawks beat UW-Stout, 66-49, for their third victory against the Blue Devils since last Wednesday.

Whitewater, the No. 2 seed in the WIAC East Division, will play at top-seeded UW-Eau Claire from the West in a tournament semifinal game Wednesday night.

Whitewater built a 12-5 lead on Stout through the opening quarter and never looked back.

Senior guard Emily Schumacher made four of Whitewater’s 12 3-pointers on her way to 16 points. Rebekah Schumacher, a Whitewater High grad, had three 3s and 13 points, while Adriana Wood had four 3s for 12 points. Johanna Taylor added eight points, nine rebounds and three blocks.

The Warhawks beat the Blue Devils by 25, 25 and 17 points in the three meetings in the last week.
