Nagle, defense remain hot for Winona State women
When a team shoots thirty-five percent from the floor and gets outrebounded, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume said team lost. The No. 10 Winona State women basketball team aren’t just another squad though.
Connor Nagle continues to light it up from long range, knocking down six 3-pointers for the third consecutive game to lead the Warriors past Minnestoa-Duluth 57-46 at McCown Gymnasium on Saturday.
It wasn’t just Nagle’s efforts beyond the arc, however. WSU (23-2, 16-2 NSIC) were absolutely suffocating on the defensive end.
UMD (6-15, 6-12). coached by former Saint Mary’s and two-time Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year Mandy Pearson, managed to convert on just 17 of its 69 attempts from the field. A meager 24.6 percent.
The Bulldogs did manager to win the battle on the glass, but only by one (46-45).
Kayla Timmerman posted her second straight double-double with 10 points and 10 boards, while also tying career highs with six blocks and three assists.
Tara Roelofs added 14 points, four rebounds and three assists for Winona State, which have won seven in a row.
