Bridgeport, Conn.-The University of Bridgeport women's basketball team struggled on the offensive end all night long, as the Purple Knights shot only 25.5 percent (14-of-55) from the floor for the game, as UB saw its three-game winning streak snapped with a 70-52, East Coast Conference home loss to the visiting NYIT Bears on Wednesday night.  Bridgeport is now 11-9 overall and 5-5 in conference play.  The Bears raise their overall mark to 11-8, and the Bears are 5-6 in the ECC.
