  • Redshirt junior guard Ali Patberg has scored in double figures in seven consecutive games and had her first double-double this season against Maryland with a team-high 16 points and 11 rebounds. She is averaging 13.8 points per game and a team-high 5.4 assists per outing.
  • Sophomore guard Grace Berger is just behind Patberg in scoring with 13.5 points per game while two others in freshman forward Mackenzie Holmes (11.8 ppg.) and junior guard Jaelynn Penn (10.8 ppg.) are all averaging double figures this season.

Away from the house, but looks like we came out with some fire in our bellies. Like the box score with everyone getting involved. Still feel like by tournament time we need Gulbe/Holmes to be able to make larger contributions against teams with the quickness to stay with our guards. Would make us more balanced and prepared for different teams we will potentially face.

I'm not sure we deserved it, but we pull out a 57-53 win.  Listening to Greg Murray it sounded like we started playing not to lose.

Points:  Penn 14; Patberg 10; Wise 10; Berger 9; Gulbe & Holmes 7 each.

Rebounds:  Berger 15; Gulbe 8; Holmes 7 each.

Assists:  Patberg 4; Berger 3.
