Home Sports Women Bulldogs Extinguish Flames with 101 Point Win Wednesday

by Chris Johnstone


The No. 2 ranked Concordia women’s basketball team took on the College of Saint Mary Flames in Omaha on Wednesday, Jan. 18 and won 101-77.

“I think our defense was the reason that we were able to get a 24 point win,” sophomore forward Quinn Wragge said. “Not all of our outside shots were falling, especially at first, so we had to rely on our defense.”

Freshman forward Philomena Lammers led the team with 18 points and 8 rebounds. Wragge chipped in a solid 13 points and 12 boards in just 19 minutes.

College of Saint Mary guard Miranda Acuna poured in 15 points in 18 minutes for the Flames but it was not enough to combat the Bulldogs’ 57 points in the second half.

The team’s white hot shooting from behind the 3-point line and suffocating defense has played a major role in the Bulldog’s win streak. That streak was extended to 20 games after a win against Morningside University on Saturday, Jan. 21.

Wragge offered her opinion earlier in the week on the team’s strategy going into the match.

“To prepare for Morningside I think we will try to adjust some things on our press that were not working against St. Mary’s,” Wragge said. “We will also watch some film on what we did last time against them and why that was successful. Morningside has been playing well lately and will really want to get us on our home court so it should be an awesome game.”

The Bulldogs won the game 90-60 on Saturday, Jan. 21. Their next opponent will be Hastings College on Jan. 25, followed by the Concordia University Wisconsin Falcons on Jan. 27 in the Bulldog’s first match of the Concordia Invitational Tournament (CIT).
