WARNER — A hostile crowd and several defensive lapses cost both Northeast-ern A&M basketball teams against Connors State College in the Melvin Self Fieldhouse.

Coach Jim Rowland’s 23rd ranked Lady Norse suffered an 80-70 loss in double overtime to the seventh-rated Connors Cowgirls.

With the victory the Cowgirls win the regular season Bi-State Athletic Conference East Division.

Coach Dustin Grover’s Golden Norse dropped an 83-75 decision to the Cowboys in the men’s contest.

Details of both games will appear in Wednesday’s News-Record.
