At halftime, the Hawks led 30-29.
“We were very flat and not alert for much of the first half,” said Matt Svehla, Hawks coach. “We appeared to still be on Thanksgiving break, but we got going in the second half and were better on both ends of the court. Mykala (Baylor) really controlled the paint, and Kori Fischer ran the floor well in the second half.”
Baylor recorded a triple-double with 18 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocked shots. Fischer scored all of her ten points in the second half.
Other high scorers for Northeast include Irene Sanz with 13 points and Sierra Bell with 12.

On Saturday, Northeast will wrap up the Classic with a game against Iowa Central Community College at 4 p.m.
