The No. 10-ranked Hastings College women’s basketball team found some redemption Saturday with a 64-55 victory over No. 9-ranked Morningside College (15-4).
The Lady Mustangs were the last team to defeat Hastings College with a 76-49 win Nov. 23. Since then, the Broncos (18-2) have reeled off 12 straight wins, including their nine-point win over the weekend.
Both teams traded baskets and the lead in the first nine minutes of action. With 10:20 left to play in the first half, junior guard Cami Bruckman hit a 3-pointer that gave Hastings College a 17-15 lead. It was a lead it wouldn’t surrender for the remainder of the game.
Bruckman led Hastings in scoring with 17 points. Jamie Van Kirk had 16 points and three assists, while Junior post Laurel Zwiener had 15 points and seven rebounds.
