“We have reached a point where we have improved and found consistency,” said head coach Ben Lister. “I think it will help us compete against any team on our schedule the rest of the way out.”
Statistically, the Wildcats currently have only two players averaging in double figures as junior Alisha Fanshier and senior Gloria Atanmo currently average 15 and 10.1 points per game respectively.
“Gloria has really stepped up and she had an outstanding game against Tabor with 15 points, nine rebounds and six steals,” Lister added. “Alisha also played at a high level averaging 25 points over our two game stretch. We feel confident we are headed in the right direction.”
