Doane Falls at Concordia

The Doane women's basketball team used fast break points to push Concordia University in the first half but the Bulldogs were able to open the second half with a 12-3 run to open enough of a gap and eventually pull away from the Tigers, 78-60.

Doane was paced by Hannah Helman's 21 points.  Cheryl Braithwait added 15 points and Kristine Ortmeier posted 13.  Lindsay Shaw added nine for the Tigers.  Vanessa Munter led the team with seven rebounds and Ortmeier posted a game-high five assists.
