The Truman State women racked up their most points in a regulation conference game in six years, while the Bulldog men lost a low scoring grinder at Rockhurst this afternoon (Saturday).

Six players scored in double figures to help the Truman women sprint past the Hawks 91-70. Allison Thomas got the start, in the post, in place of the ailing Katie Jaseckas and scored a career-high 18 points, while freshman Alex Wiese, who came into the game with two points, add 11.

A late three-pointer for the tie by Hunter Strait was no good. Strait and Cade McKnight finished with 11. Brodric Thomas scored all 16 of his points in the second half.
