What they did do was pass the ball quickly and efficiently, allowing guard Macie Michelson to penetrate the lane and find space for a shot or an open teammate for a three-pointer.
BENSON -- Nikki Linn scored seven of her 10 points in overtime to lead Benson to a 62-57 non-conference win over Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Tuesday.
