WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

North Idaho 69

Colby College 52

CASPER, Wyo. - Sophomore Tugce Canitez had 16 points and five assists as the 14th-ranked Cardinals defeated the Mules from Colby, Kan., in the 20th annual Pizza Hut Women's Invitational at Casper College.

"After playing four games in a row, we're starting to click," NIC coach Chris Carlson said. "There was definitely a fatigue factor we had to push through today, but we still played hard, pressured the ball and were able to execute our zone offense really well."

NIC (8-0) was the only team to finish the three-day tournament unbeaten, finishing a stretch of four games in four nights away from home after beating Sheridan College in a nonconference game on Wednesday.

"I am real happy with four straight wins on the road," Carlson said. "It's not easy to do, especially with the travel. It was a great effort by the entire team."

Deanna Dotts had 11 points and 13 rebounds starting in place of sophomore Kiki Edwards-Teasley, who was out with an ankle injury.

"She actually tweaked it a couple games ago, but played through it Friday," Carlson said. "It swelled up on her before the game, but we got her taped and ready to play, but we felt if we could keep her off the court, we would."

Carlson expects Edwards-Teasley back when the Cardinals travel to the Community Colleges of Spokane on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
