Women’s basketball drops one to St. Norbert

Tristan Lipe

The Lawrence women’s basketball team faced off against St. Norbert in a home game this past weekend. The Vikes were looking to bounce back from a tough loss against St. Norbert only a week and a half ago. The Lady Vikes hoped coming home to Alexander Gymnasium would be a boost that would help get their first win.
However, once again they struggled against a tough St. Norbert team. The Vikes were held to just 13 points in the first half going 6-21 from the floor. The Vikings trailed by 13 at halftime and were unable to come back from the early deficit, as St. Norbert went red hot and put up 41 points in the second half.
The Vikes were again held under 20 points, putting up only 18. The Vikes were led by Erin Henzi who had nine points, Laura Aerts who had eight points and America McClure who added six. Katie Condon and Katie Van Es each added four points.
The Vikes continue to struggle to find their first win. Their lack of numbers and scoring weapons has really hurt them this season. They have moved the ball well and played tough defense, but turnovers and an inability to finish have been their downfall.
The Vikes have one game remaining this season. Wednesday, Feb. 18 the Vikes played their last home game of the season against Beloit. Next, they finish off the season at Ripon Feb. 21.
