The LCC women’s basketball team lost its third game of the season, 73-62 to Mid Michigan College on Tuesday, Dec. 19.

The Stars trailed the whole game after a slow start in the first quarter, going down by 11 points. They made small runs throughout the game, but came up short.

LCC’s overall record fell to 11-3 with the loss.

Sophomore forward Shalyn Dziewiatkowski had an efficient game for LCC, scoring 10 points on 71 percent shooting from the field and grabbing 10 rebounds.

Despite the loss, LCC still showed impressive defense during the game. Freshman center Kara Bartels finished with five blocks, and freshmen guards Peyton Anderson and Ivana McCollum recorded two steals each.

Anderson missed the last two games with an injury and returned on Tuesday. Freshman guard Ellie Humble left the game in the second half with an ankle injury of her own, but later returned in the fourth quarter.

The poor shooting night from the three did not phase the Stars. Humble said they had to adapt to their shot not falling.

“Shooting is all mental,” Humble said. “We know we can shoot well as a team and it happened to be a night where we couldn’t get anything to fall. I think having a few days off will really be beneficial. We get to reset our bodies and our minds.”

Over the break, Humble said rest will be a priority for her, both for her ankle and mentally.

“I’m definitely going to give myself some mental rest so I can be ready for conference play,” Humble said. “I’m also going to continue to work on my shot by getting a lot of reps in as well.”

The Stars head into conference play in January with their hard work and mentality intact.

“We plan to translate it to conference play by just us keeping up all the hard work in practice and supporting each other,” LCC freshman guard Bailey Hosford said, “knowing what we are capable of and going out and showing it every game.”

Humble said the competition that Mid Michigan College brought to the game was good for LCC.

“I think playing Mid Michigan was really good preparation for what we're going to see in the conference,” Humble said. “Even though the outcome was not what we wanted, we know what to work on as a team so we can handle teams like Mid Michigan in the future.”

LCC’s next game will be against Olivet JV for their second matchup in the season. The game will be on Saturday, Jan 6. The Stars won the first meeting against Olivet JV in November, 65-61, and look to start another win streak.
