Lady Lakers vs Indiana Northwest University

Posted by on 9 December 2013

The Lady Lakers started off the game extremely cold from the field and gave up 12 unanswered points to start off the game Friday evening. The Lady Lakers never recovered from the slow start and lost the game to a very athletic Indiana Northwest University Lady Red hawks 87 to 50. The Lady Red hawks were red hot from the field hitting 58.5% from the field and 42.9% from the 3 point line. I was very proud of our effort. The Lady Lakers played extremely hard on defense throughout the entire game. They never gave up despite the score. After reviewing the stats from Friday nights game, we match them in most categories except the shooting percentage.

Lady Lakers vs UW Manitowoc

Posted by Mike Flentje, Women's Basketball Coach on 5 December 2013

The Lady Lakers improved their record to 4-2  tonight with a victory over cross town rivals UW Manitowoc Lady Blue Devils 94 to 51. The Lady Lakers played excellent defense especially in the beginning of the second half causing the Lady Blue Devils to turn the ball over 30 times. That is probably the best team defensive of the year. The Lady Lakers also dominated the offensive boards to give them several opportunities to score on second chances. I was very pleased with their effort but feel that we can get even better! The Lady Lakers are very young having eight of their ten players either sophomores or freshmen.
