Northeastern State men ruin Senior Night for Fort Hays State

NSU women drop 6th straight game


In the women's game, Northeastern State ended the regular season with a 55-39 loss to Fort Hays State Friday night inside Gross Memorial Coliseum.

The RiverHawks (10-16, 7-12 MIAA) concluded the year on a six-game losing streak, and they also finished on an eight-game losing skid on the road. They finished ninth in the final MIAA standings and are now scheduled to travel to Maryville, Mo., for the opening round of the MIAA Championship March 3. However, due to inclement weather, the game between No. 9 seed NSU and No. 8 seed Northwest Missouri State could potentially be pushed back a day.

The Tigers (19-7, 12-7 MIAA) secured no worse than a top-five finish in the league standings.

Northeastern State was led by redshirt freshman guard Courtney Cowan, who finished with 13 points and a career-high eight rebounds off the bench. Junior guards Fontana Tate and Chelsey Beathard were both held scoreless. This marked the first time since their freshman year (Feb. 16, 2012) that at least one of the two did not record a point in a game.

NSU shot 21.4 percent (12-for-56) from the field, 31.6 percent (6-for-19) from behind the third-point line and 81.8 percent (9-for-11) at the free throw line. Fort Hays State shot 32.3 percent (20-for-62), 22.2 percent (4-for-18) from downtown and 68.8 percent (11-for-16) at the line.

Beth Bohuslavsky led FHSU with 12 points. Kate Lehman finished with 10 points, 17 rebounds and 10 blocks, while Katelyn Edwards added 10 points and 12 rebounds.

The eight game road losing streak for Northeastern State is the most since the 1998-99 season.
