Ariana Smith and Megan Hummel paced Cherokee on the boards with seven rebounds apiece, followed by Gerdes and Ramirez with six each, and Emuly Haselhoff and kaely Hummel four each. Megan Hummel was tops in steals with seven, and also recorded six assists, while Kaely Hummel registered four assists.

Cherokee meshed 18-64 firld goals for a chilly 28 percent, including just 4-17 three-pointers.

The visiting Warriors were led in scoring by Kelsey Prescott with 19 points, and Amber Schubert 17.

The teams were knotted at 9-9 after the first quarter, and SB-L edged out to an 18-14 halftime lead before outscoring Cherokee 34-26 in the second half to claim the non-conference win.
