The Lakeland College women's basketball team endured a rough non-conference loss at the hands of Thomas More College, 70-42, on Monday, Dec. 31, at Lakeland in the first of a five-game home stand.
Lakeland has had a tough run in the last few weeks, as today's loss to Thomas More, ranked No. 7 in the nation, makes for Lakeland's fourth straight loss following a pair of trying non-conference contests with UW-Oshkosh and Millikin before the holiday break and a loss to Northern Athletics Conference opponent Rockford College on Dec. 15.
Although the Muskies (4-7 overall) shot just 25 percent as a team in the first half, they trailed by just 14 points heading into the locker room at halftime with a score of 32-18. However, the Saints poured on the points in the second half, shooting 60 percent from 3-point range for the half and finishing at 45.8 percent from the field to take the game.
Sophomore guard KC Blahnik led the Muskies' scoring efforts with 10 points on 50 percent shooting from the field while freshman guard Mary Dennewitz chipped in seven points. Blahnik and sophomore forward Emily Agner topped the rebounding column with six boards apiece.
The Muskies will look to snag a win when they return to NAC play with Concordia University, Wis., on Tuesday, Jan. 8. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at Lakeland.
