With post players Lindsey Dall and Jess Prewett dominating down low and senior guard Lindsay Rich taking care of business outside, the Franklin College women’s basketball squad turned back visiting Mount St. Joseph 66-54 Wednesday.

The Lions jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the opening minutes of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference matchup. But over the next five minutes, Franklin caught up, and each team traded baskets forging a tie for the fifth time at 15-all.

Mount St. Joseph made good on eight layups in the first half by freshman guard Heidi MacManus and forward Rachel Blevins.
