  • 0

ST. THOMAS, VIRGIN ISLANDS — The University of South Dakota women's basketball team on Thursday came within two points of the Northwestern Wildcats during the Paradise Jam tournament, but the Big Ten team out of suburban Chicago went on a 13-5 run early in the fourth quarter to pull away. 

The Wildcats defeated the Coyotes 73-57 in the opening round Thursday. 

Six of those points came consecutively, giving the Wildcats a 10-point lead with about six minutes left. That gave Northwestern enough cushion.

Caileigh Walsh led Northwestern with 20 points.
