Johnson & Wales clips DSU women 62-60

DENVER -- In a game that was close to the wire, Dickinson State's women's basketball team came up short to split a weekend trip against Johnson & Wales University.

Mariah Duran hit a 3-pointer with two-tenths of a second re-maining, but that left DSU no time to come any closer, falling to the Wildcats 62-60 on Sunday after-noon.

Janae Moore had 16 points and eight rebounds to lead DSU. Jess Bygate added 10 points and eight rebounds while Duran had eight points, eight rebounds and four assists.

Samantha Neal led the Wildcats (6-10) with 18 points. Caitlin Durkin added 16 points, Kristen Ward scored 12 and Kourney Shirley had 11 points and five assists off the bench.

DSU held a 37-22 edge on the boards.

The Blue Hawks (4-9) are off until Dec. 28 when they visit the University of Winnipeg (Manitoba) in a two-day trip at the same time the DSU men's basketball team is in Winnipeg for the Wesmen Classic tournament.
