The Cardinals (3-2) shot 67 percent from the field and 11 players scored.

“We got everybody in the game, which is nice, and we pushed the ball and got some easy fast-break points,” said Cardinals head coach Dustin Carlson. “Then, we started to hit from the outside and moving the ball around. When your shots are falling everything starts working better.”

Anne Dunham played her best all-around game of the season, with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Heather Horning had 10 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists, and Caroline Bell scored 7 points off the bench.

The Cardinals have a tough game at Fergus Falls awaiting them at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The Otters are 4-0 and are winning by an average of 29 points per game.

“That will be a test for us,” Carlson said. “They’ve just been crushing people.”
