“Being here this year will help us a lot. I’m sure their hearts were beating hard walking out of the locker room today.”

Union steadily built a lead that grew to 14 early in the fourth quarter, forcing turnovers and consistently pushing the ball up the floor.

Norman North made a run in the fourth quarter, scoring six consecutive points to pull within six, 34-28, but the Timberwolves couldn’t get any closer until the game’s final minute.

Bri Kuestersteffen’s 3-pointer at just under the minute mark made it a five-point game.

The Timberwolves pulled within four with the ball in the final 30 seconds but couldn’t cut the deficit any further.

Kuestersteffen led the Timberwolves with 14 points. Freshman Alexa Scott scored 10.
