The second-ranked Concordia women’s basketball team returned to GPAC play again after a week off and defeated the Mount Marty Lancers 84-62 in an away game.

Freshman forward Philomena Lammers had a 17-point and 10-rebound performance which spurred the Bulldogs to a 22-point victory. Four Bulldogs reached double figures in the contest and every player that suited up for the match was able to check into the game.

The Bulldogs came off of their 27th Concordia Invitational Tournament title as they swept both Concordia University Wisconsin and Concordia University Ann Arbor Jan. 27 and 28. They also hold a 24-game winning streak, the longest in the NAIA Division II.  The streak is also Coach Drew Olson’s longest during his tenure as the head coach at Concordia Nebraska.

Mount Marty guard Ali Kuca lead the way for the Lancers with 17 points, but it was not enough to stop the Bulldog defense as Concordia forced 23 turnovers from the home team in the contest.

Offensively, the Bulldogs tallied 45.2 percent shooting and 81.8 percent completion on free throws.

The Bulldogs wind down the season with only five conference games remaining as they take on Doane Tigers on Wednesday, Feb. 8 inside Walz Arena. Tip-off is at 6 p.m.
