Nebraska Wesleyan went over 11 minutes without a basket in the first half as the rivalry game was never in doubt with Doane College rolling past the Prairie Wolves 82-30 in GPAC women's basketball on Wednesday night (Jan. 15) in Crete, Neb.

The 52-point margin was the largest in the series history with NWU held to their lowest point total since the 1976-77 season.

NWU was playing without leading scorer Felicia TeKolste who missed the game with illness.  It showed on the offensive end as the Prairie Wolves shot just 14.8 percent from the field and trailed 41-13 at halftime.

Doane (8-10, 2-8 GPAC) scored 41 points in each half and shot 42.4 percent from the floor for the win.  Heather Broman scored 20 points to lead the Tigers.
NWU was led by Kelly Sanchez and Courtney Cook who each score eight points.
