The Highlander women’s basketball team dropped a contest to Iowa Wesleyan College this past Saturday, 52-33.
MacMurray struggled to find consistent offense, as the Iowa Wesleyan Tigers really clamped down defensively. Turnovers and bad shot attempts plagued the Highlanders in the first half as they trailed 29-12 at the half.
The team played a much more solid second half, being outscored only 21-23 after halftime. The Highlanders comeback was a little too late however as they dropped the contest 52-33 against the Tigers. Senior guard Kelsey Anderson lead the team in both scoring and rebounding with 10 points and 7 boards. The Highlanders' defense also forced 30 turnovers.
On Wednesday, January 23rd MacMurray will take on Webster University in a 6pm home match. The Highlanders will try to rebound from this loss and put a check back in the win column.
