Hawks earn OT win over NDSCS in day one of Classic

by amandab  11/6/2017 9:11:34 AM --  WAHPETON, ND - A strong overtime performance gave the Northeast Community College women's basketball team a win over North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS) on the first day of the NDSCS Classic. Final score was 55-45.

"This was a tough road game," said Matt Svehla, Hawks coach. "Neither team could find any sort of rhythm. Baskets were really hard to come by. Some of that was due to good defense and some was due to poor shooting."

Svehla said his team struggled through regulation play, which ended in a 40-40 tie. The Hawks regrouped in overtime, where they were 4-5 from the field and 7-8 from the free-throw line.

"We had some concerning moments, but I like how we battled and finished strong."

Mykala Baylor recorded 13 points and seven rebounds for Northeast. Sierra Bell tallied 15 points and four rebounds, while Lauren Hunstad had seven points and four rebounds.

The NDSCS Classic continues tomorrow when the Hawks (2-0) face Bryant & Stratton College (NY) at 4 p.m.
