The LCC women’s basketball team won convincingly Wednesday, Nov. 15 at home against Cornerstone University JV.

The Stars won 70-45, improving their record to 3-1 on the season.

Freshman center Kara Bartels led the way offensively for the Stars by scoring 30 points on 12-for-16 from the field, and pulling down seven rebounds.

On the defensive side, freshman Peyton Anderson put on another clinic, accumulating five steals, as well as scoring 17 points on the offensive end.

Off the bench, freshman center Kaylin Howard contributed to the scoring load by draining a three and finishing the game with six points.

The Stars had an excellent start to the game and were in control from beginning to end. They outscored Cornerstone 18-6 in the first quarter. In the third, they expanded on that lead by outscoring Cornerstone 22-6.

LCC first-year Head Coach Megan Hudson has said that if the team can focus on defense and have an outstanding performance on defense, the offense will just come to the Stars.

Bartels said that is exactly what happened in this game.

“We started off really with great defensive pressure and kept them from getting good looks at the rim,” Bartels said.

After scoring 30 points in the game, Bartels said her mindset is always focused on what is happening on the next play to keep her focused.

“Just trying to improve every game and working on finishing at the rim,” Bartels said. “My mindset is to always move onto the next play and make it better than the last.”

The team plays well together moving the ball, and Bartels credited her teammates for her scoring outburst.

“My teammates did an amazing job and got me the ball in places where I could score,” Bartels said.

The Stars next game will be at home on Saturday, Nov. 18, against Jackson College at 1 p.m.
