BISMARCK (AP) -- North Dakota Miss Basketball Katie Lorenz of Langdon scored 13 points Tuesday to lead the Class B girls over Class A 80-55 in the first of two Lions all-star basketball games.

It was the third straight victory for Class B. This year's second game is Wednesday in West Fargo.

The Class B squad used its quickness and full-court pressure to create 23 Class A turnovers.

"We've worked on it the last four days," said Mohall's Wayne Brackenbury, the Class B coach. "We think our strength is our guard play and tonight we were (quicker)."

The Class B squad held a 36-31 halftime lead, then went on a 14-3 run early in the second half and a 16-4 run later to put the game away.

Nicole Meier of Dickinson Trinity scored 10 points and had a game-high 10 rebounds for Class B.

Jamie Glick of Minot and Nicole Nold of Jamestown paced Class A with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Nold was the only Class A player not charged with at least one turnover.

"We knew they would press us," said Class A coach Anne Watkins of Fargo North. "The look was a little different maybe than we expected. And they just made more plays than us."

Both teams shot poorly from the field -- Class B at 39 percent and Class A 29 percent. The Class B squad had a 60-46 edge in rebounds.
