  • The Bethel College women’s basketball team was literally beaten up in a 70-62 loss to Haskell Indian Nations University Friday in the Bethel Classic. Bethel was the less physical team, but was called for 28 fouls to 23. Bethel outscored Haskell 47-45 from the field, but was outscored 25-15 from the free throw line. “We didn’t react well at all,” Bethel coach Mark Fox said. “And we talked about it over and over in the scouting report and in pre-game that it was going to be a train wreck. It was going to be chaotic and it was going to be frenzied. The biggest key to this game was how do we handle their pressure, and we didn’t handle it well at all.” Haskell, 2-3, was led by Sydney Jessespe with 18 points, hitting 11 of 15 from the line, followed by Jenine Coriz with 13 and Jessica Williams with 10. Lucinda Gurrola had 12 rebounds. Bethel was led by Jaime Tschetter with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Haley Bright scored 10 points. Both players came off the bench. “Jaime has been very consistent with her effort and her intensity,” Fox said. “She has great hands. She catches anything we throw to her. Shelby (Goniea) played well off the bench tonight. Lauren (Ulrich) had her first game where she looked like a freshman. That’s going to happen.” Six turnovers in the first 4 1/2 minutes of play allowed Haskell to jump to a 12-4 lead. Bethel rallied back to take the lead on a pair of Tschetter free throws with 4:59 left in the first half. Leading 31-29, Bethel ended the half giving up a 7-0 run. “It was like giving out candy at Halloween,” Fox said. “We turned it over three or four times in the last 30 seconds. We had a generous streak.” Bethel was 11 of 21 shooting in the first half to Haskell’s 10 of 28. Bethel outrebounded Haskell 21-15 in the first half. The Threshers’ undoing was 15 turnovers against Haskell’s heavy physical pressure to 10. Bethel fell behind by as 12 early in the second half. Haskell’s biggest lead was 16. Bethel got back within eight on a Jessica Ebenkamp layup with 4:10 to play. Bethel then missed three straight free throws. Bethel could get no closer. “They were far more aggressive than us, but they were getting away with it because they were consistent with it,” Fox said. “It’s part of a young team growing up. We took a little step forward against Benedictine. We took a little step back tonight. We just talked about not letting one bad game turn into two.” Bethel, 3-3, plays William Penn at 4 p.m. today. Haskell plays McPherson College at 2 p.m. William Penn lost to McPherson 73-70 in double overtime. “They’re going to be a little bit tired, but the pace of their game wasn’t nearly as frantic,” Fox said. “They play 10 or 12 kids. It will be a different pace of a game. Hopefully, that will help us out too. They have a couple big, physical kids. We will have to figure out how to guard them.”HASKELL INDIAN NATIONS (2-3) — Williams 4-9 2-5 10, Coriz 4-11 3-4 13, Jessepe 3-10 11-15, Logan 3-6 2-4 8, Keo 1-3 0-0 2, Little Axe 0-0 0-0 0, Corley 0-1 3-4 3, Stands 1-1 0-0 2, Gramling 2-4 2-2 6, Begay 0-5 1-2 1, Gurrola 3-8 1-2 7, Salabiye 0-0 0-0 0, Archambault 0-0 0-0 0, TOTALS 21-58 25-38 70.
