The Lindenwood University-Belleville women’s basketball team looks to get back to the .500 mark in American Midwest Conference (AMC) play on Saturday, as the Lady Lynx pay a visit to Missouri Baptist University. Tipoff begins at 2 p.m.
First Time Around
Back on Dec. 5, the Lady Lynx (7-14; 7-8 AMC), earned a 77-76 (OT) win over the Spartans (7-10; 6-8 AMC). LU-Belleville trailed 76-74 with .15 seconds on the clock, but Torre Kohrmann earned the old-fashioned three-point play with .09 seconds left, which gave them a 77-76 lead.
The Spartans had a chance to take the lead at the buzzer, but Jerica Hawkins’ two-pointer missed and the Lady Lynx went on for the victory.
Last Time Out
The Lady Lynx are coming off a dominating performance against St. Louis College of Pharmacy on Thursday night, as they scored a season-high 99 points and went on for the 44-point victory.
Momentum Into February
If the Lady Lynx can earn a win over Missouri Baptist, it would give them some needed momentum heading into February, as its first game of the month will be against No. 6-ranked Columbia College at home.
After that, the team does have a favorable schedule, as they’ll play (RV) William Woods on the road and No. 7-ranked Lyon College at home. The other
