Concordia brings the heat for 40 minutes.
The pressure never cooked the University of Jamestown women’s basketball team, but a shaky first half proved too much to overcome for the Jimmies. The No. 2-ranked Bulldogs held off the Jimmies 74-59 in quarterfinal action of the NAIA national tournament in Sioux City, Iowa on Saturday.
It was the second Elite 8 appearance in the last three years for the Jimmies, who finished the season with a banner 27-6 record.
“It’s sad it has to end, but it was a great season,” said UJ junior guard McKayla Orr, who poured in a game-high 21 points. “Concordia is really good. They make it hard, but I thought we fought until the end.”
