Women's College Basketball: Raiders close gap in second loss to Mystics


The Central Lakes College Raiders continued the growing process Saturday afternoon with a 74-67 loss to Bismarck State at the Brainerd campus.


Sierra Benning led the Raiders with 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Lindsay Monson and Jalyn Lamb each added 15 points for the Raiders.

“We played a lot better, but the turnovers really hurt us today,” said Raiders head coach Dennis Eastman. “We were close and it was a good situation for us. Now we know how it feels to be in those pressure situations.”
