NORFOLK, NE - The Northeast Community College women's basketball team came up short in a 63-60 game against Arkansas Baptist College here tonight.
"We turned the ball over too much, gave up too many offensive rebounds and missed too many free throws," said Matt Svehla, Hawks coach. "We did not do the things that you need to do to win close ball games."
Mykala Baylor led the Hawks with a 20-point, 17-rebound double-double. Sierra Bell totaled ten points and seven rebounds. Irene Sanz had eight points and six rebounds, while Jerrica Neal recorded seven points and seven rebounds.
Northeast (22-4) will travel to Columbus on Wednesday to face Central Community College in a 5:30 p.m. game. The men's game will follow at 7:30 p.m.
Lauren Hunstad (14), of Northeast Community College, is fouled as she goes for a layup by Sarah Pettiford (0), of Arkansas Baptist College, at the Cox Activities Center at Northeast in Norfolk Friday night. The Hawks came up short against the Buffaloes, 63-60, in their fourth loss of the season.
