THIEF RIVER FALLS -- One day after routing Itasca 102-62, the Minnesota West Lady Jays basketball team fell to a nationally-ranked Northland squad Saturday, 79-59.

The win upped Northland to 7-1 on the season.

“They’re just a good, solid team. And they shot very well. They shot 48 percent from the field for the game,” said Minnesota West head coach Rosalie Hayenga-Hostikka.

Madison Stenzel with 19 points and Megan Swedberg with 17 paced the Northland attack.

Katherin Ihnen had 22 points and 14 rebounds for the Lady Jays and teammate Andrea Hinkeldey scored 17 points with nine rebounds.

The game matched strength against strength. Hayenga-Hostikka said Minnesota West’s good inside game was played to a virtual standstill by Northland’s vaunted inside game. But Northland shot better from the outside.

Minnesota West committed 20 turnovers in the contest.
