LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Nathalie Fontaine scored 21 points for the Ball State women's basketball team (1-4) in the Cardinals 67-51 setback to Auburn (4-2) Friday afternoon at the South Point Shootout.

After trailing 37-19 at intermission, Ball State started the second half with a 13-8 run that ended with a fast break layup from freshman guard Jill Morrison off of the assist from junior guard Shelbie Justice.  Ball State’s scoring surge would make it an 11-point contest (43-32) with 10 minutes remaining.

Auburn then took back the momentum and went on a 23-13 run which was sparked by a trey from Auburn's Brandy Montgomery, building its largest lead of the ball game, 66-45, with 1:40 left on the clock.  The Cardinals brought the Tigers lead back down to 16 (67-51) after junior guard Brittany Carter ended the game with a layup.

For the second straight contest, Morrison scored 15 points which included three three-point baskets.  Carter finished the game with nine points and four rebounds.  Fontaine added six rebounds for Ball State in 34 minutes of action.

The Ball State women's basketball team will continue action at the South Point Shootout Saturday when it faces Tennessee Tech at 3 p.m. (ET).  The Cardinals return home after a four-game road stretch when Ball State hosts Western Kentucky, Dec. 7 at 2 p.m.
