Marion 20

Marion couldn't keep pace with Pacelli in a CWC crossover matchup in Stevens Point on Tuesday.

Eden Brennan and Tessa Brei each scored six points for Marion. Grace Bradley grabbed nine rebounds, while Brei had six.

"Pacelli's ball pressure was just too much for our inexperienced team," said Marion coach Brad Fischer. "They had great ball movement which allowed Emma (Van Order) to get and make a lot of 3s. We had some moments where we had opportunities, but we were unable to make the pass because of their ball pressure."
