LAKEWOOD, Colo. – The Northwest Missouri State women’s basketball team lost a close game 71-68 to Colorado Christian University to finish 1-1 for the weekend.

Freshman Tember Schechinger finished the first half in double digits with 12 points and would not quit there. Schechinger ended the game with a team high 24 points.

The second half was a back and forth battle that saw five lead changes. The final Bearcat lead would come with 6:14 left in the game when Maggie Marnin caught a pass underneath the basket to push the Bearcats ahead 66-64.

CCU would regain the lead minutes later when Bre McBeth’s jumper went in with 4:04 left in the contest.

Northwest could not get a clean shot off the rest of the way out and the game ended 71-68.

Sophomore Annie Mathews finished with a double-double adding 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Northwest moves to 4-2 on the season and head to Claremore, Okla. Saturday to take on Rogers State (6-1). It will be the final nonconference test for the Bearcats before the open MIAA play on Dec. 5 at Bearcat Arena.
