CRETE — Midland University was limited to 37 percent shooting from the field on Wednesday night during an 89-81 loss to Doane.

The Tigers shot 53 percent from the field, including 12 of 24 from 3-point range to earn their first Great Plains Athletic Conference victory.

Anthony Laravie led Doane with 28 points.

Guard Chase Parsons led the Warriors with 15 points. Reggie Gradwell, Isaiah Workman and Fremont native Ryan Williams had 12 each while TK Dixson had 11.

Doane led 44-38 at halftime and extended the lead to 61-47 on a Laravie jumper with 13:18 remaining.

Later in the half, Gradwell hit consecutive 3-point field goals and Parsons drained two free throws during an 8-0 MU run that narrowed the gap to 82-79 with 2:08 left. The Warriors, though, never got any closer.

MU, 7-3 overall and 1-2 in the GPAC, will face 15th-ranked Morningside at 4 Saturday afternoon in Sioux City, Iowa.
