Stat note: In Saturday's 74-61 setback to 6th-ranked Washington University, the Augustana women's team shot 46.7-percent from the 3-point line, hitting seven of 15 trey tries. For the season, the Vikings are shooting 30.6 percent (38-of-124) from 3-point arc. Augie is led by Molly Etheridge, who is 15 of 37 (40.5 percent).
