ROCKY RIVER --  After a series of rescheduling due to illness, the Lutheran West Women’s Basketball Team squared off against Beaumont at home, in a match-up that the Longhorns were able to take by a score of 68-24.

Right from the get-go, LW exploded on the court, on offense and defense. In this match-up, both sides of the ball were effective as the Longhorns were able to drive the ball in and score, while also hold the Bluestreaks from scoring.

The Longhorns put up arguably one of their best defensive showings of the year in this game. They allowed Beaumont to score 12 in the first quarter, but continued to depreciate their scoring through the quarters, even holding the Bluestreaks to zero points in the third. The team played tough on the defensive side of the ball and forced their opponents to make mistakes, including allowing the Longhorns to garner up 16 steals.

In the win, the team looked good; they took care of the ball and played to win. The Longhorns didn’t sink down to their opponent’s level and took complete control of the game early. The team looks for the win to help carry them into the play-offs as they start preparing for a post-season match-up on Saturday versus Trinity.
