Nagle’s eight 3-pointers lead WSU women past Minnesota State
Connor Nagle drilled a career-high eight 3-pointers to lead the No. 9 Winona State women’s basketball team past Minnesota State at McCown Gymnasium on Friday.
Nagle connected on seven triples in the opening half, and hit her eighth in the second half to become just the third player in Warriors women’s history to do so (Anna Wurtz, Becca Friestleben).
The senior guard scored a game-high 26 points for WSU (24-2, 17-2 NSIC).
Minnesota State refused to go quietly, however, pulling to within two points on a pair of occasions in the second half, but Winona State held on for its eighth consecutive victory.
With their 24th win overall, the Warriors have equaled a program record, and continue to eye Winona State’s first conference regular season title.
Hannah McGlone registered her third double-double of the year with 16 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Though Alexis Foley only shot 3-for-12 from the floor, she delivered 14 points on the strength of a 6-for-6 performance from the free throw line. Foley added four assists.
Kayla Timmerman finished with eight rebounds for WSU.
