Early on the University of Nebraska at Kearney Women’s Basketball team is showing signs of growth. They were able to take down Central Christian last week 95-66. At one point in the game, UNK trailed 8-7 in the first quarter, but after that it was all Lopers as they blew out the Tigers.
Four Lopers were in double figures including freshman Shiloh McCool as she was 6-6 from the field with 16 points, sophomore Kelsey Sanger added 14 points, freshman Elisa Backes had 13 points, and junior Lauren O’Connell had 12 points. UNK shot 53% from the field as well.
The Lopers are 1-2 and in action tonight against Bethel College. That game will tip-off at 5:30 P.M. and can be heard on 93.1 The River. Over the weekend, they will compete in the UNK Crossover Tournament. They will face Chadron State on Saturday at 7 P.M. and Colorado Springs on Sunday at 4 P.M. Both games can be heard on 93.1 The River.
