Meeker (7-13) was led in scoring by Madison Hodge with 11. Ashley VanSchuyer and Kennedy Brewster of Meeker totaled 9 apiece. Brewster had three of Meeker’s five 3-pointers.
Down 14-13 at halftime, Meeker went on an 18-10 spree in the third quarter. But Stroud retaliated by outscoring the visitors 20-13 over the final 8 minutes of regulation.
Stroud is 2-0 against Meeker this season.
Meeker will entertain Luther Tuesday night.
