Meeting for the first time since the opening weekend of the season, the Conqueror women and the Rebels from Winnipeg squared off in the first round of the 2020 NIAC tournament. Playing on a neutral court at Cass Lake High School, the teams were evenly matched for three quarters with the 3rd seeded Rebels pulling away in the third quarter to eventually win, 71-59. The Conquerors were much improved since that first meeting in Winnipeg and they played the Rebels very tough throughout the game. Their zone defense was effective and they were patient on and frequently efficient on offense. FLBC even broke the full court pressure from Red River which had given them so many problems in the first meeting. In the end, a few in-game lapses by the Conquerors sealed their fate as they were eliminated in the first round. Despite the loss, the Lady Conquerors are playing well as a team and demonstrating consistent growth and improvement. Though the conference season is now over, FLBC will look forward to the ACCA tournament played in Joplin, Mo on March 4-7, 2020.
