Devils needed two overtimes to dispose of Wabash Valley, finally securing a

92-90 win. KC trailed by a point at halftime before ending regulation in a

63-63 tie. The first overtime session went to 78 points before the Blue Devils

claimed victory. DaQuan Boyd poured in 27 points and was one of five Blue

Angels were out-rebounded 49-33 in a 77-69 loss to visiting Wabash Valley last

all scorers and teammate Adriana LaVern added 15, but she was held scoreless in

the second half. The Blue Angels return to action Wednesday night at John A
