Mount Marty Drops Two BB Games With Northwestern

Mount Marty led by four points midway through the first quarter and then Northwestern used 57 percent field goal shooting last night for an 88-66 women’s basketball victory at the Cimpl Arena.  Senior Karlee McKinney led the Lancers with 20 points as their overall record dropped to 3-11.

Mount Marty led the men’s contest briefly in the second half, but Northwestern used a two-to-one rebound advantage to defeat the Lancers 69-56 in Yankton.  Jailen Billings topped Mount Marty with 14 points, while Luke Ronsick and Elijah Pappas each scored 12 points.  The Lancer men are 7-9 on the season and are in eighth place in the GPAC standings.  The Mount Marty University basketball teams have a conference doubleheader at Dordt University Saturday afternoon.
