RLNC Lady Megizis match baskets with LLTC, but fall short in 57-40 loss - P13

Red Lake Nation College Lady Megizis hosted Leech Lake Tribal College Lady Lakers on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, at the Red Lake Humanities.

In front of the Megizis' largest crowd ever, Red Lake and Leech Lake traded baskets and the lead several times in the first half, with Red Lake leading 32-31 at the halfway mark.

Down the stretch the Lakers took the lead and never let up, taking the win 57-40. Both teams were winless on the season.

Red Lake was in it most of the way, but with just 8 players on the team, their depth was limited.

At half time of both women's and men's games, 10 names were drawn from those in attendance for an opportunity to make a shot from half court for some cash. During the women's game, the cash amount was $500, of which no one made the shot. Henry Donnell's shot was probably the closes, as his hit the rim off the backboard.

At halftime of the men's game, that amount went up to $1000. Gerald Kingbird Sr. wa the closest to nailing it, as his shot went into the rim and bounced around a couple of times before bouncing back out. Rob Beaulieu Sr. also came close as his shot hit the rim.
