OMAHA | The Northwestern scoring machine is at it again.

Second in the Great Plains Athletic Conference with a 19.1 scoring average, Kassidy De Jong was a bit off, but the third-ranked Red Raiders had three other double-digit scorers during Saturday’s 90-46 triumph over College of Saint Mary.

De Jong provided 17 points and 11 rebounds in the Red Raiders’ second straight victory. It was her fourth double-double of the season.

Northwestern (17-2, 11-2 GPAC), which entered the game first in the league with an 88.78 scoring average, hit the 90-point mark for the 10th time this season. Coach Chris Yaw’s club has needless to say, won each of those games and paved the way to victory by outscoring the Flames 27-9 at the end of the first quarter.

Taylor VanderVelde added 14 points. Sammy Blum made a game-high four three-point baskets in a 12-point performance. Darbi Gustafson supplied 10 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots.
