NSU women drain school-record 15 treys in win over Nebraska-Kearney

TAHLEQUAH — The Northeastern State women’s basketball team made a school-record-tying 15 three-point baskets en route to an 85-57 win over Nebraska Kearney Saturday afternoon at Jack Dobbins Field House.

 

The RiverHawks (8-4, 3-1 MIAA) collected their fourth-straight victory and scored a season high in points, while handing the Lopers (4-7, 1-3 MIAA) their third loss in the last four outings.

 

NSU shot lights out from the field, converting 55 percent of its shots attempts (29-for-53), a season-best 58 percent of its three’s (15-for-26) and 80 percent of its free throws (12-for-15).

 

UNK shot just 40 percent from the field (23-for-58), 33 percent from behind the arc (4-for-12) and 54 percent from the charity stripe (7-for-13).

 

Senior guard Taylor Lewis dropped a season-high 26 points on 9-of-11 shooting. She knocked down 6 of 7 from downtown in just 21 minutes. Sophomore guard Fontana Tate added a career-high 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting, and junior guard Taylor Collins gave NSU 12 points and five rebounds.

 

Sophomore guard Chelsey Stricklen posted career highs with 13 points, five assists and two blocks.

 

Ivy Jones led the visitors with 12 points. Queen Ohamara, Shelby Zimmerman and Nicole Arp all scored 10 for the Lopers.

 

NSU jumped out to a quick 12-2 lead heading into the first media timeout and never looked back. The team led by as much as 35 points in the rout of the Lopers.

 

The RiverHawks had a 48-18 lead at recess as the home team held their opponents to less than 20 points in the first 20 minutes for the second-straight game.

 

NSU finished with a season-high 85 points, which was also the most since March 11, 2011.

 

The RiverHawks are set for a three-game road trip, starting at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 9 at Central Missouri. The Jennies (10-1, 2-1 MIAA) are currently receiving votes in the national polls.
