Machinal scored 29 in a win over DSU earlier this season.

Sophomore Janae Moore was the lone bright spot for the Blue Hawks, who struggled shooting the basketball. They shot just 21 of 63 (33 percent) from the field, including 6 of 23 from 3-point range, and were 6 of 13 from the free-throw line.

Moore led the way with 15 points and 11 rebounds. However, the Blue Hawks (7-19, 2-10 Frontier) had a balanced effort throughout.

Seniors Ashley Jelly and Yianna Nadeau scored eight and seven points off the bench, respectively. Sophomore Jess Bygate added seven points, five rebounds and four steals.

Dannielle Devenny had 12 points and five rebounds while Shaye Murphy scored 11 points for the Orediggers (16-10, 9-5 Frontier).

DSU closes out its season next week with home games against the University of Great Falls (Mont.) at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and Montana State-Northern at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
