ABERDEEN, S.D. - Once again, the Dickinson State women’s basketball team fought in the fourth quarter to outscore the opponent, 24-15, but once again, the gap was too big to close and the Blue Hawks fell to Presentation College 85-65 in the conference opener in Aberdeen, S.D.

The Blue Hawks kicked off the final frame with a small 10-4 to begin cutting into the Saints lead, which was as large as 31 points to end the third quarter.

Dickinson State senior guard Lacey Waid led all players with 18 points, while adding a steal and two rebounds. Waid went 3-for-4 from behind the arc for the Blue Hawks and 6-for-13 from the field. Behind her, freshman forward Caleigh McClenahan, who eventually fouled out, scored 15 points and junior guard Ashlie Larson netted 10 points.

Led by three from senior forward Rojin Karahan, Dickinson State amassed 12 steals, but also turned the ball over 22 times.

The Saints had 28 turnovers, but simply shot better, including 40 percent from behind the three-point line.
