The Owls shot 57 percent (20 of 35) from the field, and kept the Wolverines, who defeated previously unbeaten Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart on Thursday, under 20 points in each half.

"We've been working a lot on our shooting in practice and finally we lit it up," said Hancock coach Jodi Holleman.

The Owls also sank three-pointers at a 67-percent clip, making 8 of 12. Hancock's pressure defense kept MACCRAY (7-3) from setting up too many offensive sets.

"We also worked on our presses and we knew if we would get into a half-court game with them, we could be in trouble," Holleman said.

Kendra Schmidgall and Illissa Koehl scored 18 points each to pace the Owls. Koehl made four 3-pointers.

Abbey Thissen's seven points led the Wolverines. She also pulled down six rebounds, as did Kailee Epema.
