The LCC women’s basketball team increased its winning streak to six games after beating Mott Community College Wednesday, Nov. 29 by a 63-48 score at LCC.

The Stars overall record improved to 6-1. They remain undefeated at home.

The score was close throughout most of the game. LCC only had a five-point lead going into the fourth quarter.

In the fourth, the Stars outscored Mott 26-10 and blew open the game.

Freshman shooting guard Ellie Humble led the Stars with 20 points. She knocked down six three-point field goals.

Humble said her shot had not been falling the past few games, and she needed a good shooting performance to get back on track.

“It’s the worst feeling to lose confidence when the season just began,” Humble said. “I knew from the beginning I needed to let it fly. My team gives me so much confidence to shoot the ball, so I just listened.”

Freshman center Kara Bartels had a great game for LCC, racking up another double-double with 18 points and 13 rebounds.

The Stars had a great night on the defensive end, holding Mott to only 34.9-percent shooting from the field.

LCC Head coach Megan Hudson said the Stars lead the nation in blocked shots, with Bartels ranking number two. Freshman guard Peyton Anderson is ranked number 11 in the nation in steals, averaging close to five a game.

The Stars’ next game will be against Macomb Community College on Saturday, Dec. 2 at home.

Conference play will begin in January.

Humble said the Stars are feeling confident leading up to conference action.

“If we play together as a team, put in the work and effort, we’ll have a great shot at doing well,” Humble said. “I’m excited to see where this season takes us.”
