Highlands’ Cowgirls didn’t shoot very well Saturday night.
Still, they stayed in the game with host Mesa State until overtime, when they went two for eight from the floor to end up losing 77-73.
The defeat kept NMHU winless in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play at 0-4. Coach Tiffany Darling’s team is 3-7 overall.
Beating Mesa State would have been a confidence-booster. At 6-2 overall and 3-1 in league play, the Lady Mavs are one of the early leaders in the RMAC.
