Breaking Sports: Westminster beats Skylights on last shot
The Griffins did it again. For the third straight season, the Montana State University-Northern women's basketball team had the Westminster Griffins on the ropes. Instead it was the Griffins who left the Skylights devestated. Northern led the No. 9 Griffins 66-64 with :5 seconds left in the game, but Westminster's Nicole Yazzie raced down the floor and drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to break Northern's heart.
Northern led 35-25 at halftime thanks to six 3-pointers, but Westminster tood tall in the second half. The Skylights were led by Samm Schermele and Laramie Schwenke. Northern dropped to 4-9 in Frontier Conference play and will host 10th-ranked Lewis-Clark State on Saturday night in the regular season finale for both teams.
