Lady Hornets find redemption last Saturday
Coming off a rough loss at Fort Hays State last Thursday, the Lady Hornet basketball team was out for redemption when they took the court against Nebraska-Kearney last Saturday. Laura Patrick, senior guard, put up 28 points against the Lopers to lead the team to a 84-75 victory.
The Lopers jumped out to a quick 6-5 lead over the Hornets, but with just over 16 minutes left in the first half went on a 19-5 run, helping them end the half with a 13 point lead.
Nebraska-Kearney would never lead again, but did pull within a point of the Lady Hornets, 68-69, with about four minutes left in the game. A three-pointer from Patrick would end the game 72-68. Patrick went 10 for 17 from the field and three of seven from behind the arc. Merissa Quick, junior forward, along with Kionna Kellog, senior forward, both added seven blocks.
The lady Hornets hit the court again last night, traveling to Topeka to take on Washburn where they improved their record to 20-2 overall with a 69-63 win over the Ichabods.
