Noteworthy: Carroll’s tough nonconference schedule appears to have paid off. … The Saints reopened conference play with a dominant 82-45 win over No. 10 Montana Western on Thursday.  … Carroll tied its best field-goal percentage and shot its best from behind 3-point line in that game. … Senior F Michaela Dowdy went to the ground hard in the first quarter and left the game favoring her left foot as she exited. … She returned to record a perfect night from the field and free-throw line. … Carroll was the only Frontier team, and only one of two teams, to defeat Lewis-Clark State College a season ago. … The Warriors ran through the Frontier en route to a national championship runner-up. … Lewis-Clark State appears to be a different team this year after losing first team NAIA All-American Caelyn Orlandi. … Though the Warriors do return second team All-American G Brittany Tackett, who was also picked by Frontier coaches as the Preseason Player of the Year. … The Warriors lost at Rocky Mountain College on Thursday, giving them more losses through 14 games than they had in the 2016-17 season.
