The Lady Miners fell just short of winning the Bella Vista Bronco Bill Tournament, falling in the title game to St. Francis, 65-54.

Graacie Sill led the Lady Miners in scoring with 16 points, which earned Sill player of the game. Sill was also voted runner up for Offensive Player of the Tournament for good reason. Sill was strong inside and out of the paint all three games, and her consistent scoring forced teams to double her, which led to easy buckets for her teammates.

Despite limited minutes in the second half, Avery Delhez added 13 points to the score and led the team in boards with six along with four steals.

Point guard Ashley Canevari with her tenacious defense was named Defensive Player of the Tournament for the Lady Miners, and Shaye Costanza was named Offensive Player of the Tournament.

In the first round, NU beat Vista del Lago, 54-40, and was led by Delhez with 16 points and seven rebounds.

In round two, the Lady Miners beat Folsom 64-47, getting a big game from Costanza with 22 points, five assists, five steals and five rebounds.
