GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The University of North Dakota women's basketball team fell to Weber State, 62-56, on Thursday night at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center.
The game saw both teams struggling to keep hold of the ball, with a total of 45 combined turnovers in the game. The Wildcats helped turn UND over 27 times in their win as they remained perfect in league play (2-0) and moved to 10-3 overall.
It was a see-saw first half that saw the visitors led by as many as nine. Undaunted, UND rallied to take a 25-20 lead after a 19-5 run. But, down the strech of the first half, Weber State was able to regain control and took a 31-25 lead into the locker room at the break.
Weber State extended its lead by outscoring the Hawks, 17-9, in the third quarter to build a 13-point cushion heading into the final quarter.
In that fourth quarter, UND was able to climb back into the game as Roscoe and Dyer helped lead the comeback for the Fighting Hawks.
Roscoe scored four quick points to make it a six-point game and later Dyer tied the game at 53 with a 3-pointer with 2:30 to play in the fourth quarter to melt the deficit completely.
UND again tied the game when Roscoe hit a jumper with 1:17 left to send the 1,304 fans at the Betty into a frenzy.
Weber State put the game away when Regina Okoye scored four points on two straight steals in the final minute of the game to put the game away for the Wildcats for their first-ever win over North Dakota (5-1).
UND returns to action on Saturday as Idaho State invades the Betty at 2 p.m.
