“We didn’t play our game, or at the level we should’ve been playing,” said NIC head coach Chris Carlson.
Hannah Love scored a layup in the final minutes of the game putting NIC up 55-54. Love had 10 points and went two of four from the line. Angela Woods and Kabri Emerson both finished with 10 points.
“CSI played a great game,” Carlson said. “You have to give them credit. They shot well, they scored well, they did what they needed to do. It was a tough game.”
Southern Idaho’s Patrice Toston scored 26 points, including seven of the team’s final 11 points.
