Danielle Wagner and Jaidyn Lyman combined to hit 8 of 11 3-pointers and the eighth-ranked Carroll College women's basketball team defeated No. 17 Lewis-Clark State 65-44 on Saturday in Lewiston, Idaho.

The win keeps the Saints (18-7, 10-4) firmly in second place in the Frontier Conference.

Carroll’s red-hot shooting gave the Saints their initial margin. Carroll outscored LCSC 22-11 in the second quarter to take a 34-21 lead at halftime. A large part of that was due to the Saints hitting six 3s in the first half.

After taking a double-digit lead with one minute left to go in the first half, the Warriors never could trim the lead by to single figures.

Wagner led all scorers with 18 points and added six rebounds, two assists and two steals. Lyman had 14 points and Hannah Dean added 11 points, four rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and two steals.

The win gives the Saints two road wins against ranked opponents this week. The Saints knocked off No. 3 Montana Western in Dillon on Thursday. It also becomes the first 2-0 week in conference play for the Saints since the beginning of January.
