Posted Nov 23, 2022 4:18 AM

PRATT, Kan. — The Blue Dragons (8-1, 2-1) bounced back in a big way against the Beavers (6-2, 1-2).

Hutchinson had not lost back-to-back games since the 2017-2018 campaign entering the Beaver Dome Tuesday night and coming off a road loss at Cloud County last Saturday.

The Blue Dragons struggled from the field early, making only 6 of 21 shots in the first quarter. Before going cold, Hutchinson hit three of its first five attempts.

Hutchinson made just six field goals in each of the first three quarters.

Pratt hit 7 of 15 to start the game and led Hutchinson 18-14 after one quarter.

The Dragons managed an eight-point lead by the break and started to pull away in the third quarter behind Morgan Browning's 19 points. After missing her only attempt of the first half, Browning scored all 19, including 3 of 3 from distance, in the second half.

Mya Williams finished with 15 after leading Hutchinson with 11 at the break.

Kali Howard and Monae Duffy each registered a double-double.

Howard posted 13 points and 13 boards while Duffy had 12 and 14, respectively.

Princess Anderson led the Beavers with 21 points. She shot just 3 of 14 from the field, but made 13 of 16 free throws.

Hutchinson scored 38 points in the paint and 22 points off 18 turnovers.

FINAL: Hutchinson 74 Pratt 57
