CARROLL COLLEGE 69, WESTMINSTER 62: At Helena, Mont., the Westminster men's basketball team saw its Frontier Conference Tournament reign end as the Griffins suffered a 68-62 defeat to No. 19 Carroll College on Saturday night. The fourth-seeded Griffins were the two-time defending tournament champions.

With the loss, Westminster falls to 21-9 on the year, while Carroll improves to 22-7. Carroll will host Montana State-Northern in the conference title game on Tuesday.

After both teams scored on the first possessions to star the second half, Westminster went on a 9-0 run capped by a Chris Cassity trey to put them on top 46-37 with 13:04 to play.

Carroll would then out together a 12-2 run of its own to build a one-point lead with nine minutes to play. A Tony Dalton and-one with 3:44 remaining put Carroll ahead for the final time. Westminster trailed by two with 1:05 to play when Byago Diouf tipped a loose ball to Chris McGrath, who then found Andy Garland for a layup and foul. The free throw put Carroll ahead 64-59 with 59.9 seconds to play. Westminster failed to score on its next three possessions and Carroll made free throws to seal the victory. Gregory made a 3 at the buzzer to make the final deficit six.

Westminster women

CARROLL COLLEGE 64, WESTMINSTER 63: At Salt Lake City, the eighth-ranked Westminster women's basketball team was upset by Carroll College 64-63 in a Frontier Conference Tournament semifinal game on Friday night in the Behnken Field House. No. 5-seeded Carroll got an Alysha Green runner with 2.2 seconds on the clock to take the victory.

Westminster entered the game as the No. 1 seed in the tournament, but falls to 26-6 on the season with the loss. Carroll improves to 21-11 with its second win of the year in Salt Lake City.

"You have to give Carroll all the credit tonight," head coach JD Gustin said. "They played hard for 40 minutes and they deserved to win tonight."

After leading 13-5 at the 13:02 mark of the first half, Westminster quickly saw the lead evaporate and the Griffins played from behind much of the night. Carroll would take a 17-15 lead at the 9:55 mark of the first half and would not trail again until there was 5:19 left when Jenteal Jackson made two free throws to put Westminster ahead 55-54.

After a Carroll possession in which they got three shots before a turnover, Westminster got a layup from Dani Evans to push the advantage to three with 4:25 to play. Four straight Carroll points again put the in front until two more Jackson freebies made it 59-58 Griffins with 2:22 remaining. Sara Meyer would split two free throws for Carroll and then Angela Fales scored a layup on a great drive to make it 61-59 for Westminster with 1:44 to play.

The game would remain that way until Jordan Bagley buried a three from the corner to put Carroll ahead 62-61 with 25.7 seconds remaining. Michelle Pace scored a layup with 14.5 seconds left to give the Griffins a one point advantage. After each team called a timeout, Green took the ball from the right wing into the paint where she banked in a running 12-footer with 2.2 to play. Jenteal Jackson fired a shot from half court as time expired, but it sailed wide.

"I'm little disappointed that we didn't rise to the challenge," Gustin stated. "We just didn't want it as much as Carroll did tonight."

Westminster suffered its fifth-worst shooting night of the season as they finished the game at 37.7 percent from the field.

Jackson was the only Westminster player to score in double figures as she finished with 16 points. She posted her first career double-double by adding a career high 10 rebounds while recording four assists and three steals. Pace and Angela Fales scored nine points apiece while Dani Evans and Dana Bates added eight each for the Griffins.

Westminster must now wait for an at-large berth into the NAIA Women's Basketball National Championships. The field will be announced on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
