WSU women annihilate Viterbo

Overwhelming. That may be the best word to describe the No. 16 Winona State women’s basketball team’s thorough, 89-33 defeat of Viterbo at McCown Gymnasium on Saturday.

En route to its sixth consecutive win to begin the season, WSU (6-0) could not have been more dominant.

The Warriors led by 57 at one point and held Viterbo (0-8) to nine points or less in three of the four quarters, including just four in the second and only allowed the V-Hawks 13 points at halftime.

Winona State limited Viterbo to just 30 percent from the floor and forced 29 turnovers while committing just six.

Eleven of 12 Warriors players scored, five of which reached double figures. Emily Passint led the way with 14 points, while Alexis Foley and Connor Nagle had 13 and Hannah McGlone and Kayla Schafer each notched 10.

WSU, shooting a remarkable 89.4 percent as a team from the free throw line, knocked down all eight of its opportunities from the charity stripe.

McGlone also pulled down a game-high nine rebounds.
