SEWARD, Nebraska-  NAIA power Concordia-Ann Arbor (17-4) dominated the rebounding which led to numerous second half transition opportunites during a 74-52 win over Concordia Wisconsin in the first game of the 2013 CIT in Seward, Nebraska this afternoon.

After falling behind 9-0 over the first five minutes, Stacey Brunner-Jones' Falcons showed grit as they battled back to tie the score at 25-25 with four minutes left in the half. 

Reserve Jasmine Williams (Fr./ Chicago, Ill.)  led that surge with nine first half points including 4-4 from the field. 

"Our first half comeback showed determination, but they (Ann Arbor) are a skilled, quick attack team," offered Brunner-Jones.

CUW trailed by just 33-29 at the break, but CU-AA took back complete control right after halftime. 

Williams led CUW with a 13 point performance, but no other Falcon reached double figures.  Brittany Zietlow (Sr./ Oak Creek, Wis.) and Anna Butler (jr./ Kewaskum, Wis.) totalled seven points each.

Athletic Ann Arbor got 22 points from Abbey Hengesbach and 20 from Hannah Sabol.  Sabol got inside the Falcon defense to go 9-12 from the field while Hengesbach was 7 of 14, including two of four from long range. 

Rebounds were a big part of the story as the Cardinals held a massive 46-27 advantage including 13 offensive boards.  They also shot 47% for the game compared to CUW's 35%.

CUW, which saw their scintillating seven game winning streak ended, will play NAC league foe Concorda-Chicago in tomorrow's first game starting at noon.
