Luther finished its pre-Christmas schedule defeating No. 7 University of St. Thomas 77-72 this afternoon at Schoenecker Arena.
Trailing 38-32 at halftime, the Norse outscored the Tommies 26-18 in the third quarter, thanks to an 18-6 run in the final five minutes of the frame.
Five Norse tallied double figures. Laura Hamilton had perhaps one of her best games of the year. Hamilton led the team in points (19), rebounds (9) and assists (6). Katie Waller finished with 17 points, while Madison Spence, Claire Marburger and Grayson Schroeder all finished with 10.
The win was the second in a row for the Norse who are now 7-5 overall. St. Thomas fell to 7-2.
