Posted by on 15 January 2014

The Lady Lakers improved their record to 8-5 by winning their third straight game over NCAA Division III Mount Mary University 78 to 60. This was the first road game of the second half of the season and the Lady Lakers got off to a very sluggish start. The team did pick up the pace on defense and fought back late in the first half to take the lead just before half time 43 to 39. The second half the team played with much more enthusiasm.  The Laady Lakers played extremely well on defense causing many turnovers which turned into easy layups to put the game away. The coaching staff was very excited to see the effort on the court as well as the enthusiasm on the bench in that second half. This was a team victory.

Lady Lakers vs Andrews University

Posted by on 13 January 2014

The Lady Lakers improved their record to 7-5 with an impressive win over Andrews University 75 to 10. After Andrews scoring the first two points of the game the Lady Lakers swarming defensive gave up only 2 more points for the rest of the half giving the Lady Lakers a 37 to 4 lead. It could be seen  that the Andrews guards were struggling with the half court pressure so the Lady Lakers extended their press and caused Andrews to turn the ball over 20 times in the first half. We were extremely proud of the energy and the defensive pressure that our players played the entire game. The Lady Lakers had 30 steals for the game which resulted in many offensive layups which locked up the victory in the second half.

Lady Lakers vs Judson University

Posted by on 6 January 2014

The Lady Lakers dropped a hard fought game to the NAIA athletic Judson Lady Eagles on January 4. The final score was 73 to 46. The Lady Lakers came out with an enormous amount of energy and actually held the lead until late in the first half. The Lady Lakers broke their press and were beating them down court and scored. Their press did not actually hurt us like the first game they played. They took off their press and switched to a very tight person to person which caused some problems to their offense. They made some shots down the stretch and moved out to a 35 to 24 lead at the half. The Lady Lakers came out of the half time with great determination but the lay off of the holiday caught up with the team and Judson went out to a 10 -2 run to start off the second half. The Lady Lakers never back down and played extremely hard for the entire game.
