Senior guard Jaelyn Haggard gave Northwest Missouri State a lift in the second half Thursday evening as the Bearcats snapped a four-game skid with a 57-47 win over Newman.

Haggard scored 15 of her game-high 20 points in the second half and finished the game 6-11 from three-point range.

The final bucket from Haggard came with 1:04 remaining to extend the lead to 14 points as the celebration on the Northwest bench began.

The Bearcats (4-6) overcame the third best scoring defense in the MIAA to pull out the victory.

Northwest shot 52-percent in the second half to hand Newman its second loss in a row.

Molly Hartnett finished the night with 14 points and four assists, and Jillian Fleming hit a new career-high with 12 points and four rebounds in the win.

The Bearcats next opponent is Central Oklahoma on Saturday at 1:30pm. Pregame on KXCV 90.5 and KRNW 88.9 begins at 1pm.
