Noteworthy: The Frontier title is still a four-way race, though Carroll College is tied with Rocky Mountain atop the conference for now. … The Saints’ defense has been strong lately, harassing opponents and giving Carroll a chance to win every game it’s played in. … Carroll will get a chance to redeem itself after falling to Montana State-Northern in Havre on Dec. 2. … The Saints felt it was one of their worst performances of the season. … Hannah Dean continues to lead Carroll in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. … Northern lost senior leader and all-American Jacy Thompsen to a season-ending knee injury recently. … The Skylights have struggled in the Frontier, losing their last nine games. … Carroll is the only team the Skylights have earned a win over this season.
