Bay College Women Drop Two Games At Tournament

The following stories were written by Mike Pankow, Bay College:

The Bay Norse (1-3) would lose their third consecutive game, falling to the Bismark State Mystic on Saturday afternoon by a final of 95-73.

The Norse would come out of the gates strong, standing toe-to-toe with the Mystic in the opening frame.  After three lead changes in the early going, Bismark State would take the lead midway through the first for good.  The Mystics would grab 18 offensive rebounds in the first half and create 15 turnovers to build a 17-point lead at the half. 

The trend would continue in the second half.  Though the Norse did not shoot poorly overall in the field, hitting 45.5% of their shots from the floor, they would hit on just one of seven shots from behind the three-point arc.  Despite that, the Norse would make a run in the fourth, closing the score down to 12 points early in the frame. 

The Mystics would take control of the matchup at that point, squashing any comeback attempt and building a 25-piont lead before all was said and done.  Bismark State would score 21 points off of turnovers in the matchup, and would end up with a 22-point victory.

"I think this was another early game that our younger players gained valuable experience," said Head Coach Rob Robinson.  "It was a great opportunity to play a division one opponent early in the season and get some very valuable experiences that will help us down the road."

Keisha Davis (FR, St. Ignace, MI) would end the game with 11 points and five rebounds.  Jordan Kraemer (SO, Norway, MI) would score 11 as well, while Kaitlyn Hardwick (FR, Gladstone, MI) would add ten points.

Amber Stevahn (FR, Bismark, ND) would lead all scorers with 23 points while grabbing six rebounds.  Trae Murray would add 21 points and seven rebounds, while Sydney Anderson (FR, Killdeer, ND) and Courtney Olson (FR, Mandan, ND) would score 11 points apiece.

The Norse will look forward to their home opener on Wednesday evening.  They will welcome UW-Green Bay, Marinette into town.  That game is scheduled to tip off at 6 pm.


A late charge by the Bay College Norse (1-2) would come up short, as the comeback attempt ran out of time and the United Tribes Technical College Thunderbirds (2-2) by a final score of 64-59.

The Thunderbirds would take control in the first quarter and stretch out to a ten point lead in the opening frame.  A poor first half shooting effort would put the Norse in a hole, as they would connect on just eight of thirty attempts.  The Thunderbirds would take advantage of the situation, building a 17-point lead by shooting 45.2%.  Included in that percentage was hitting six of 15 from behind the three-point arc.

Bay College would trail by a score of 34-21 at the halftime break.

The Thunderbirds would continue to build a lead in the third quarter.  United Tribes would extend their lead to 23 points and looked to be in control of the matchup.  The Norse would trail by 20 heading into the final period. 

Bay would make a run in the fourth and give themselves a chance, outscoring their opponents 21-6 in the final period.  The Norse would turn the tides shooting-wise, hitting 16 of 32 attempts from the field in the second half.

Time would run short in the height of the Bay College run, as they would close the lead to within single digits late.  The Thunderbirds would hold on to win by five.

"We didn't do a very good job keeping them off the offensive glass and missed too many baskets in the paint early," said Head Coach Rob Robinson.  "That put us in a hole.  I was proud how the players at the end fought and almost pulled us all the way back."

JuliAnn Wickman (FR, Felch, MI) would lead the Bay offensive attack with ten points on five of nine shooting.  Taylor Hunter (FR, Gladstone, MI) ended with nine points.  Jordan Belleville (SO, St. Ignace, MI) and Elizabeth Goodacre (FR, Rapid River, MI) would add eight points, while Jordan Kraemer (SO, Norway, MI) would score seven points and grab eight points.

Tariq Brownotter (SO, McLaughlin, SD) would lead all scorers with 16 points on four of eight shooting from three-point.  Jaelyn Two Hearts (FR, Fort Totten, ND), Danielle Pelteir (SO, Dunseth, ND), and Kierra Johnson (FR, Reno, NV) all added nine points.
