At a glance: 

Going 2-18 from downtown does not typically get the job done, and Lake Region State figured that out Saturday evening. Getting out-rebounded (28 vs. 33) additionally tends to move the needle in the opposition’s favor, even if both teams are hitting close to the same mark as each other (both teams shot 47.2% from the field).

At a glance: 

Clarence Daniels did it all for the Royals during their Sunday matchup against Williston State. His double-double is now his second of the season (27 points and 10 rebounds on Nov. 1 vs. Jamestown JV). 

WOMEN’S:

    - Free-throws: Hailee Brandon (6-11) 

At a glance: 

Double-digit points from Hailee Brandon and Olivia Williams off of the bench (13 and 15, respectively) gave Dawson Community College enough of an edge to offset the team’s 15 total free-throw misses (16-31 overall). Tiziana Huici and Laura Ribo combined for 36 points off the Lady Royal bench (24 and 12, respectively). 

Lake Region State vs. Dakota College at Bottineau: 

Final score: 62-45 Dakota College at Bottineau (11/6) 

    - 14-23-13-12: 62

At a glance: 

Going 0-12 from downtown will take a team close to nowhere. This was the case Saturday evening as Dakota College of Bottineau only needed to go with a seven-player rotation to take care of business against the Lady Royals. The Lady Royals only made 27.9% of their shots on the floor (19-68).
