CRESTON - The Iowa Central women put on a shooting clinic against Southwestern here on Saturday.

The Tritons (21-8 overall, 12-4 ICCAC) tied a school record for three pointers made in an 88-55 victory over Southwestern (0-30).

Iowa Central received 17 triples from nine different players. The 17 treys made ties a record set by the 2007-08 team.

"We had 36 out of our 52 points from three in the first half,'' said Iowa Central head coach Craig Carlson. "They packed in a zone and we took what was available.

"That was the first time I've had nine different players hit three.''

St. Edmond graduate Lydia Harvey recorded a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Harvey led the Tritons with three triples.
