Bench Leads Knights to Win at North Central
MINNEAPOLIS - The MLC women's basketball team used a complete team effort to score a 70-32 win at North Central Thursday night.
The Knights took control of the game from the jump, building a 20-point halftime lead and never looked back the rest of the way.
Amanda Selle (Appleton, Wis./FVL) and Sarah Pederson (Watertown, S.D./GPLHS) came off the bench to lead the team with 12 points apiece, while Kadie Drake (Adrian, Mich./Madison HS) scored nine points and added eight assists.
On top of a strong showing offensively, the MLC bench also contributed to the team's strong defensive showing. Drake finished with five steals on the night, and the team forced the Rams into 25 turnovers.
With the win, MLC improved to 5-11 on the season.
The Knights will return to action on Saturday, January 30, when they travel to Bethany for a 5:30 p.m. game.[BOX SCORE]
