For the first time since the 2000-01 season, the Nebraska Wesleyan women's basketball team has opened the season with a 2-0 record after their 78-73 victory over Edgewood College on Saturday afternoon (Nov. 21) at the Cornell College Classic in Mount Vernon, Iowa.
The Prairie Wolves had to overcome a 11 point second half deficit to earn their second victory of the season. With just under eight minutes to play in the game, NWU trailed 61-50.
NWU would not overtake the lead until 1:19 to play in the game when freshman Katie Fagot nailed a 3-pointer to put the Prairie Wolves up 71-70. NWU would never trail again as they shot 7-8 from the free throw line in the final minute.
Katy Golden had a big game for the Prairie Wolves scoring 21 points going 8-9 from the free throw line and 3-4 from 3-point range. Janelle Baal scored 12 points and Sadie Struebing and Shea Rasmussen each added 10 points.
