DEFENSIVE GRIND: Norse Women Top Cavaliers

IRONWOOD---Points were at a premium on Friday as the Bay College Norse women's basketball team won a defensive battle over the Western Tech (Wis.) Cavaliers, 43-33, in Ironwood. The two teams combined for nearly as many turnovers (62) as they did points (76) in the 40 minutes of basketball.

Both teams shot less than 30-percent from the field, with Western Tech making only one of the 19 three-point shots the women took.

The Norse trailed, 8-5, after the first quarter, and trailed, 13-9, midway through the second quarter. That's when Bay scored nine straight points on consecutive triples by Kelsea Ackerman, Jordan Belleville, and Jordan Kraemer.

The Cavaliers tied the game at 27-27 before Keshia Davis made a basket drew a foul. She made the shot and it was a 30-27 lead. JuliAnn Wickman followed with a three-point basket, and Kraemer had a steal and a basket to open up a 35-29 lead.

Kraemer led all scorers with 16 points, and she added a dozen rebounds.

Kerrigan Lyga had 11 points to lead the way for Western Tech (5-5).

Bay College (9-5) has won five straight games. The Norse do not have a game on Saturday because the Leach Lake (Minn.) Tribal School ended its womens program.
