Fourth-ranked Hastings College was way too much for the Nebraska Wesleyan women as they spoiled their home opener by defeating the Prairie Wolves, 103-58, in the Great Plains Athletic Conference opening game on Tuesday (Nov. 24) at Snyder Arena in Lincoln, Neb.
The Broncos (7-2, 2-0 GPAC) were 14-20 from 3-point range and shot 55.7 percent for the game en route to their 103 points. Hastings built a 47-24 halftime lead and never looked back as the Prairie Wolves were never in the contest after halftime.
Hastings jumped out to an early 12-2 lead, but NWU climbed back to 12-9 and would never get closer the rest of the game as the Broncos defeated NWU for the 19th time in a row.
The Prairie Wolves (2-1, 0-1 GPAC) shot 40.7 percent from the field, but only 33.3 percent in the first half as they fell behind in the first 20 minutes.
For NWU, Sadie Struebing led the team with 16 points and eight rebounds. Shea Rasmussen also reached double figures with 11 points and seven rebounds.
Five players scored in double figures for the Broncos led by Rachel Isherwood with 16. Becky Tesch came off the bench and just missed a triple double with 14 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.
NWU will be back in action this weekend with NCAA III Tournament play at the Simpson College Classic.
