Northwest Missouri State led Emporia State for nearly 22 minutes Tuesday evening inside Bearcat Arena, but the Hornets used a late run to defeat the 'Cats 58-51.

In their first home game since December 5, the Bearcats (3-6) opened a 10-point late in the third quarter. The Hornets (6-2) got back within seven points entering the fourth quarter and managed to take the lead on a three-pointer with 4:39 remaining. Jillian Fleming hit a layup to tie it with 3:20 to play in the game. From that point, Emporia State ended the game on a 7-0 run with all the scoring coming from sophomore point guard Tre'zure Jobe.

The 58 points and 37.5-percent shooting for ESU are each the second-lowest outputs of the season for the club that averages 70.9 points per game.

Jaelyn Haggard paced Northwest offensively scoring 14 points.

Kylie Coleman and Molly Hartnett each scored 8 points apiece.

Jayna Green finished with 4 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists, while Mallory McConkey had 6 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists.
