Basketball: LWC Women look to continue win streak at home
By Kyle Jackson
The Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team looks to continue their win streak inside Biggers Sports Center this weekend as they host Bethel (Tenn.) Saturday afternoon. Tipoff is scheduled for 2pmCT.
The Blue Raiders (11-7, 6-4 MSC) currently sit third in the conference standings and enter the match on a two-game win streak after defeating (RV) Freed-Hardeman (TN) 69-58 Thursday evening.
Senior forward Maleigha Oldham led the team to the victory after a 27-point game while senior forward Bree Glover had 12 rebounds and six blocks in the victory. Glover remains only three blocks away from 100 career blocks and six away from taking over at No. 3 all-time in career blocks.
Oldham continues to lead the team in points per game averaging 14.3, the eighth highest in the conference while also averaging 2.3 steals per game, the third-highest average in the conference.
Glover continues to lead the team in rebounds per game averaging 9.4 so far this season ranking second in the conference while also averaging 3.0 blocks per game, the 10th highest average in the NAIA and best in the conference.
As a team, the Blue Raiders are averaging 72.4 points per game and are shooting 42.2 percent from the floor and 36.7 percent from beyond the arc, the second-best in the conference. Meanwhile, freshman and sophomore guard Sydnie Hall and Amelia Hodges continue to shoot over 40 percent from beyond the arc, ranking fourth and sixth in the conference respectfully.
As for the Wildcats (11-10, 5-8 MSC), they enter the match after seeing their two-game win streak at home snapped by Cumberland (Tenn.) in a 55-62 loss on the road. Senior forward Mickey Head led the team with 12 points in the loss.
The Wildcats are led by junior guard Ryann Roberts who averages 14.2 points per game, ranking ninth in the conference while Head leads the team in rebounding with 6.2 boards per game.
As a team, the Wildcats are averaging 66.8 points per game and are shooting 40.4 percent from the floor.
Tomorrow's meeting will be the second time these two programs have met this season. The Blue Raiders lost the previous meeting on November 18, 2021, 66-76 on the road, and have never defeated the Wildcats at home in two previous meetings.
Live video and live stats will be available for the match.
