The University of Wisconsin-Superior’s UMAC winning streak was in danger of coming to an end Saturday at Minnesota Morris.

A pair of Hannah Norlin free throws sealed Superior’s 77-72 victory and extended its winning streak to 41-0 since joining the UMAC three seasons ago.

Kontny and Norlin had 17 and 16 points, respectively, to help UWS improve to 14-4 overall and 9-0 in the UMAC. Both players also pulled down 10 rebounds.
