Aesthetically, nobody would compare Thursday's women's basketball game between Harper College and visiting Moraine Valley to a great piece of art.

Even the winning coach wasn't thrilled with what he saw.

"I thought it was a sloppy game," said Moraine Valley Community College coach Delwyn Jones, whose Cyclones won 84-70.

Thanks in part to a new freedom-of-movement rule in the sport, the teams combined to shoot a total of 53 free throws.

Harper trailed 35-33 at the half despite dictating the game's tempo and getting 21 of Monica Hinderer's game-high 36 points.

"Harper was outhustling us," said Jones. "Hinderer is a fantastic player. They were getting the ball inside and we were really struggling (to defend her)."

A switch to a 1-3-1 zone helped the Cyclones get a bit more success against Hinderer and coach Jenny Turpel's team.

The Hawks (0-4) have a game at 5 p.m. Saturday at Trinity International, the first of three straight road games for Harper.
