Lady Yellowjackets end skid against La Crosse

It was Senior Day for the UW-Superior women’s bas­ket­ball team this past Sat­ur­day and the Lady Yel­low­jack­ets were able to send Brit­nee Blake, the team’s only senior, off on a good note with a 71–66 vic­tory over UW-La Crosse.

The Lady Yel­low­jack­ets got back to play­ing stingy defense, hold­ing La Crosse to 66 points on 36.5% shoot­ing from the field and 28.6% from beyond the arc. Despite shoot­ing 32.8% as a team, UWS only com­mit­ted nine turnovers and hit six more free-throws than La Crosse, en route to the vic­tory. Sally Linzmeier recorded her 10th double-double of the sea­son, scor­ing 19 points and grab­bing 10 rebounds. Dean­dra Vavra had 14 points and Grace Kennedy scored 11 points to help Linzmeier. Rachel Atchi­son led La Crosse with 17 points.

More impor­tantly, the vic­tory moves UWS back into 4th place, ahead of UW-Platteville. With two games to go in the reg­u­lar sea­son, UWS might have to win-out in order to secure the 4th spot if they hope to host a home play­off game for the sec­ond year in a row. The Lady Yel­low­jack­ets are on the road on Wednes­day as they travel to UW-River Falls, a team they have already beaten this season.
