STEVENS POINT, Wis. - Krista Mayyou scored 20 points to lift Concordia University Wisconsin to a 76-72 victory Friday against Concordia in the first round of the NCAA Division III women's basketball tournament.

"It was a game that was back and forth the whole time, and each team had their own little mini runs," Cobbers head coach Jessica Rahman said. "They hit a couple extra shots more than we did. I certainly can't fault us for our effort. We can be proud of the way we played."

The game had 14 lead changes and eight ties.

The Falcons took a 69-67 lead with 2 minutes, 20 seconds to play after Erin Meier hit a transition layup. CUW never trailed from that point.

Trailing 72-70, the Cobbers had a chance to take a lead with 39 seconds to play, but sophomore Eric Nord's 3-point attempt rattled out.

Senior point guard Jenna Freudenberg scored a game-high 23 points in her final game for the Cobbers. Lindsey Schultz added 18 points and 10 rebounds.

"I think the most special thing I'm going to remember about this group is how they worked together," Rahman said. "They definitely had fun playing the game. ... It was a great year with a fun team and a fine group of young women."
