On Saturday, the Lancer women rallied to defeat Presentation 69-62 as Karlee McKinney scored 21 of her 24 points in the second half. The Mount Marty men crushed Presentation 88-51 as nine players scored at least six points. On Sunday, Dickinson State put up 33 points in the third quarter to rally past the Mount Marty women 80-65. In the men’s game, Valley City State scored 17 consecutive points in the first five minutes and rolled past the Lancers 84-51.
