North Newton, Kan. - The women's basketball team had a tough time putting the ball through the hoop in the first half of their contest against Kansas Wesleyan and the 11 point first half deficit proved too much for the Threshers to overcome and lost the game 52-60.
The second half was much better for Bethel College as they outscored the Coyotes 38-35 on the strength of much better shooting. The first half saw the Threshers shoot a bitter cold 17% from the field but the second half warmed up for them and shot a much better 50% from the field. Bethel continues to struggle from deep and could only manage 3 of 13 for the game for 23%
Chelsea Harris led the team in scoring and rebounding with a 11 point 6 rebound performance. No other Thresher was in double figures. Kansas Wesleyan University (12-10, 7-4) had three players score 10 points apiece - Stephanie Frost, Montric Santee and Christian Casssity.
