Wednesday, January 7, 2015

A Dec. 30 matchup between Southeast Missouri and William Woods featured a quartet of Bootheel players appearing on the same court.

Coming off the bench for SEMO was former Dexter 1,000-pointer scorer Hannah Noe and Three Rivers alumna Erin Bollmann. Against them and starting for William Woods (8-3) were longtime teammates Dennisha Rice and Marissa Webb, who played together at both Poplar Bluff High School and Three Rivers College.

Southeast (7-6) won easily, 77-40, by limiting William Woods to 24 percent shooting.

Bollmann, who has been Southeast's sixth man this season, led all players with 14 points and 11 rebounds over 25 minutes.

The wide margin also meant Noe, a freshman who has been playing a few minutes a game, got a season-high 14 minutes of playing time. She made the most of the extra minutes with a season high six points on 2-for-4 shooting and added two assists.

Rice and Webb had seven and six points, respectively, as well as four rebounds.
