The Spartan women’s basketball program is pleased to announce the following schedule change: Tuesday’s final exhibition game against Graceland University has been moved to the Creston campus. The game will be played at 6 p.m.
Spartan Head Coach Brett Gilcrist commented, “I cannot begin to explain how excited I am for the opportunity to host an exhibition game on our own campus! Although our girls have played five games now, playing at home is something they have not experienced. Our first home game is November 1. This schedule change affords us the opportunity to prepare for that event in a way we otherwise could not have prepped. That being said, we need fans! Our girls need to see what it is like to play in front of a home crowd before November begins. Please come support your Spartan women’s basketball team!”
The Southwestern Women's Basketball Team opened its exhibition season last night with two games at Midland University. After making the two-hour drive to Fremont, NE, the Spartans first faced the Storm from Southeast Community College in Nebraska. The game featured two guard-heavy lineups where transition offense was a constant threat. Although shooting was poor for both teams, dribble penetration allowed both sides to get good looks at the rim throughout the game. Undersized and undermanned (Southeast had two post players standing 6'0" or taller and rotated ten girls in the lineup), the ultimate detriment to the Southwestern attack was their inability to win rebounding battles and handle defensive pressure. Down four at halftime (14-18), the Spartans looked to be right in the game. Unfortunately, Southeast opened the second half on a 6-0 run and never looked back (Final score: SWCC 23, SECC 38). The Spartans were led offensively by Jamee Miner, a freshman from Omaha, NE, who scored 11 points (to go along with a team-leading three steals). Brittany Clark, also a freshman from Omaha, did her part by grabbing 11 rebounds to go along with her five points.
