Harlem led at three quarter stops while Wolf Point out scored Harlem 15-12 in the final stanza.

The Lady Wolves (1-5, 4-8) have struggled with slow starts this season.

Poplar (1-5, 3-10) dropped a conference game to Malta 5031 Saturday, Jan. 25.

“That’s the neat thing about basketball [improving during the season],” Wolf Point head coach Brent Nygard said.

“I think Mya Fourstar had a great third quarter with 13 points,” he said of the senior scoring 18 of her 19 points during the second half.

“I think Poplar played well,” Nygard said.

“We had a tough weekend. Lots of minutes for our bench players, some whom have never started, but we came out and played two games with a lot of intensity,” Poplar head coach Les Bighorn said.
