Basketball: Buffalo’s free shots beat Rogers girls 53-43

The Rogers Royals fouled Buffalo way too often and paid dearly for it.

The Bison nailed 28 of 34 free shots to win an otherwise low-scoring game 53-43 on Thursday evening in Buffalo.

“They out hustled us, and we sent them to the free throw line too much,” said Rogers coach Karlee Anderson. “We’ve got to work on that. We’ve got four games left before playoffs.”

Ten scored 13 points and Thirteen scored 12 for the Bison (6-4 conference, 12-9 overall).

Lindsey Dorr netted 14 points and Marina Nowak 10 for Rogers (6-5 conference, 13-9 overall).

Rogers will host St. Michael-Albertville on Tuesday.
