Story by Gene McGivern, St. Thomas SID

        Freshman guard Missy Pederson sank her third 3-pointer of the second half with 1:08 to play to help host St. Thomas (9-0, 7-0) hold off Concordia (6-4, 5-2) 75-71 in MIAC womens basketball action at Schoenecker Arena.

        Junior Molly Hayden had 18 points and seven rebounds to help the Tomswin their 18th consecutive MIAC game and give Ted Riverso a victory in his 400th game as UST womens coach. Riverso is now 324-76 (.811) in his 15th and final season.

        Cobber soph Sarah Spears scored 10 consecutive points to cap a 12-2 run that pulled Concordia within 70-67 with 1:28 to play. But Pederson sank a  clutch shot from the top of the key to extend the lead to 73-67 with 1:08 to go. UST added two free throws in the final 24 seconds and held off the Cobber bid.

       Spears had 15 of her game-high 19 points in the second half and added six assists and six rebounds. Jamie Olson added 11 rebounds. The Cobbers outrebounded UST 40-34 but were hurt by 26 turnovers.
