Tigers Fight off Hardrockers in Win

The Tigers found that defeating a team twice in two weeks is a lot tougher the second time around as they fought back to defeat South Dakota Mines and Tech, 90-78.  Two weeks early, Doane defeated the Hardrockers by 20 on their home court.

Doane battled back and forth with the Hardrockers in the first half and trailed by three with a minute left.  Amy Fox picked up a basket to close the gap to one and after a turnover, Doane was able to run off the final 48 seconds of play thanks to a pair of offensive rebounds.  The final one led to a Nicole Anderson three-point basket as time expired.

The momentum carried over initially in the second half as Doane forced back-to-back turnovers which led to a pair of baskets.  South Dakota M & T battled back and eventually took a one point lead.  However, they would hold the lead for a mere 11 seconds as Lindsay Anderson hit a three-point basket.  The Hardrockers would tie the game on a pair of free throws a few second later but would never gain the lead the rest of the way.

The Tigers used a 7-0 run late in the game to seal the victory as they posted a season-high 90 points.

Hannah Helman led the way for Doane with 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting, including a pair of three-point baskets.  Lindsay Anderson followed up with 22 points while Nicole Anderson collected her first career double-double, posting 15 points and 10 rebounds.
