No.14 ranked Concordia women’s basketball team took on Mount Marty in Walz Arena on Saturday, Nov. 19 and won 75-65. The Bulldogs currently hold a six-game winning streak after dropping their season opener to No.1 Marian University in Denver, Colorado.
Junior guard Mary Janovich led the way for the Bulldogs with 14 points and five steals. Freshman forward Philomena Lammers finished with 10 points, six rebounds and five steals.
The Bulldogs were 5-1 overall and 2-0 in GPAC play coming into the matchup, with their most recent victory over Midland University on Wednesday night. The Lancers came into the game with a with a 3-3 overall and 0-1 in conference play with their most recent victory coming from Dakota State on Nov. 6.
Mount Marty guard Sammy Kasowski led the way for the Lancers with 20 points and 10 boards, but it was not enough to stop the Bulldog defense as Concordia forced 25 turnovers from the Lancers in the contest.
“Steals make it feel like the game is going your way and that you are controlling the game,” Lammers said. “Getting 18 steals helps the flow of our game. Plus, if just half of those can transition to points, that’s about double our winning margin.”
The Bulldogs take a couple days off before they continue conference play and face Doane College on Tuesday, Nov. 22 on the Tigers home floor. Tip-off is at 6p.m. CT.
