The Nebraska Wesleyan women's basketball team set a pair of school records in the big 91-16 victory over the California Institute of Technology on Friday (Dec. 30) in the CMS/Cal Tech Classic in Claremont, California.
The 75-point margin of victory was the largest in school history and the 16 points scored by the opponent was the fewest points allowed by a NWU women's basketball team. The previous record was 22 points given up during the 1997-98 season to Medaile in a 89-22 win.
NWU extended their winning streak to three games and the Prairie Wolves have now won four of their last five to improve to 5-7 overall.
Twelve different players scored for Nebraska Wesleyan in the game with Mallory Shanahan and Shea Rasmussen each getting 14 points. Payton Everett came off the bench to score a career-high 13 points. Everett and Hannah Marshall both made three 3-pointers in the game.
NWU forced Cal Tech into 44 total turnovers for the game and held them to 15.6 percent shooting (5-32).
Shanahan and Rasmussen were both named to the All-Classic Team.
Nebraska Wesleyan now returns to Great Plains Athletic Conference play as they travel to top 10 ranked Morningside College on Jan. 4.
