"We got into foul trouble early and struggled to keep up with the depth that Concordia had," said M State Head Coach Janice Hendrickson. "We did a much better job taking care of the ball and attacking in our offense. We have to do better at controlling the rebounding game, limiting their second chance opportunities. I have to give Concordia credit for their ability to shoot from the outside."
The Cobbers made 10-of-22 (45%) 3-point field goals and shot 46% (29/63) from the field overall. They were also 17-of-20 on the free throw line and held a 49-27 edge on the boards.
M State hit 36% (24/65) of their shots, but made only 1-of-13 (7%) from 3-point range. They were 10-of-13 (76%) from the foul line.
