The Timberwolves had the ball and a two-point lead with 20 seconds left, but a turnover led to a Bennett three-point play that put the Wolfpack on top. LC had a chance in the waning seconds, but couldn’t capitilize.

Lauren Rewers and Whitney Meier scored 12 points apiece for the Timberwolves (14-6), and Natalie Wheelock added six rebounds and six assists.

The loss was LC’s fourth in their past five games. They wrap up the regular season Saturday at Lewiston.
