#5 Dieterich Nips #2 Neoga for 3rd

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Neoga was ranked the #2 seed and Dieterich the #5 seed in the NTC Basketball Tournament. But, the two teams were a lot closer than that as they played to a 1-point win for Dieterich in the 3rd place game of the NTC tourney on Saturday, 37-36.

Neoga carried a 9-6 lead into the 2nd period and a 16-12 lead into the half. Dieterich's leading scorer Candace Niemerg was held to just two points in the 1st half. But a 9-4 run by Dieterich in the 3rd gave the Maroons the lead.

When the 4th period started, Dieterich was up, 21-20. After the two teams scoring only 41 points in three periods, they scored 32 oin the final quarter.

Sydney Higgs scored a two in transition, 23-20 Maroons. Niemerg dished to Mallorie Vahling for two and it was a 5-point Dieterich lead.  Vahling returned the favor and Niemerg made it a  7-point lead with 5:00 left, 27-20.

Neoga hit a baseline jumper. Higgs scored on a put back and Neoga made another jumper. Niemerg -28 blocked a shot and then scored at the other end on a nifty inside move and lefty two with 2:42 remaining, 31-24.
