The last three quarters of Tuesday’s game against Northridge had to be the most fun he’d had all season.

The Highland Scots withstood a 10-1 first-quarter run by the Northridge Vikings to put up a 12-0 run of their own in the second. They later took the lead for good with some hot shooting to finish with a 47-43 nonconference victory at home.

“We made some shots when we needed to. We hadn’t been doing that all year,” said Chapman. “And I’d say we took care of the ball better, when we needed to, than we had been.”

Highland’s second-quarter run was punctuated by the first of three 3-pointers by Katie Davies, who led the team with 18 points. Her trey with 1:08 to play gave the Scots their first lead (21-20) since the first minute of the game.
