With their 95-66 win over Dakota Wesleyan, Northwestern took over the second spot in the GPAC with their 13-2 overall mark.  Hastings leads the league at 14-2, and Morningside, who has been beaten by NWC, is in third at 13-2.

The Tigers struck first in the match-up at the Corn Palace and held on to the lead for the first few minutes of play.  The Raiders overtook Dakota Wesleyan when Deb Remmerde connected on a three-point attempt at the 15:39 mark.  They never relinquished the lead.  Ahead by 11 (41-30) at intermission, NWC shot 65.4% from the field in the second half, 77.8% from three-point range, to cage the Tigers, 95-66.

Remmerde, who recorded 40 points in the win, closed the chapter (or began a new one) on her amazing consecutive free throw mark.  After sinking 133 straight, she missed the second of two from the charity stripe with 16:49 remaining in the second period.  The miss didn't deter her efforts as she went on to hit four from beyond the arc and to sink her remaining two shots from the free throw line.  Jaime Hoegh added 15 points for NWC and dished three assists.  Miranda Boekhout had 14 points, nine rebounds, six assists and four blocks, and Mandy Carr had five assists and two steals.
