KEOKUK, Iowa—Southeastern (Iowa) rallied late to hand the Carl Sandburg College women’s basketball team a 60-55 loss on Wednesday night.

 

The Chargers (4-3) led 26-25 at halftime and had a 53-49 advantage in the second half before the Blackhawks went on an 11-2 run to close the game. Sophomore forward Marysa Remick scored a team-high 18 for Sandburg and was the only Chargers player in double figures.

 

DeJanique Nicholas scored 18 to pace Southeastern, which lost to the Chargers less than three weeks earlier.

 

“It was a sloppy game from start to finish. We won the tip and our first pass was an over-and-back,” Sandburg coach Mike Bailey said. “We finished the game with three turnovers in our last four possessions. It’s tough to win when you don’t give yourself opportunities to shoot the ball.”

 

The Chargers look to snap their three-game skid when they play a pair of games this weekend at the Lincoln College Classic. Sandburg faces Lincoln Land at 5:30 p.m. Friday and takes on the host Lynx at 2 p.m. Saturday.
