The LCC women’s basketball team won its 19th game of the season against Glen Oaks Community College Wednesday, Feb. 7 thanks to a 21-point scoring night from freshman shooting guard Ellie Humble.

Humble scored 15 of her 21 points from the three-point line, knocking down five threes and shooting 55 percent from long range.

Freshman center Kara Bartels of LCC scored 18 points and grabbed six rebounds while shooting 67 percent from the field.

The Stars started the game off strong, going on a 14-2 run. However they were outscored by Glen Oaks in the second quarter as the Vikings got hot from the three-point line, making six in the first half.

In the third quarter, the Stars came out strong with an adjustment at halftime and blew open the lead, outscoring Glen Oaks 32-9.

LCC Head Coach Megan Hudson said this was a great team win coming back from the loss the Stars had last week.

“We are working to improve how we execute the small details each game,” Hudson said. “Playing teams the second time is always more difficult. The element of surprise is gone in many ways but everyone was able to play balanced minutes and contribute.”

In the first half, Hudson said LCC did not execute well in the half-court.

“We moved to allowing our defense to start our offense and that was the right mix for this game,” Hudson said.

The Stars are coming off a week's break in the schedule. The remainder of the schedule will help prepare the Stars going into playoffs.

“The schedule is more conducive to recovery the remainder of the season,” Hudson said. “Assuming we don’t have another weather reschedule game, rest shouldn’t be an issue with Wednesday and Saturday games.”

The Stars’ next game will be at home against Kalamazoo Valley Community College on Saturday, Feb. 10. LCC defeated KVCC 55-32 in the first matchup of the season and look to reach their 20-win milestone with another win on Saturday.
