The LCC women’s basketball team increased its impressive win streak to seven games with a 49-37 win over Macomb Community College on Saturday, Dec 2.

Win improved the Stars’ record to 7-1. They remain undefeated at home.

After the win on Saturday, the Stars have begun to get votes to become nationally ranked.  Freshman center Kara Bartels said it means a lot to the team to get national ranking votes.

“People are noticing us and our hard work is paying off,” Bartels said.

Bartels led the way for the Stars against Macomb, finishing with 19 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks.

Freshman guard Peyton Anderson had a good game as well, scoring 13 points and getting three steals and eight deflections.

Defense continues to be a priority for the Stars as Bartels racks up multiple blocks every game and Anderson gets multiple steals.

Bartels explained how she stays in position for the blocks:

“A lot of it is in the timing and just being there in help-side defense,” Bartels said. “It also helps to be my height (6-foot-3).”

There were numerous times in the game where Anderson blew past the defenders and beat everyone to the rim for an open layup. She said she uses her speed to set her teammates up as well.

“I use my speed mostly to get past people and I need to remember not to go too fast and get out of control,” Anderson said. “If I stay in control and the shot’s not there, I can find one of my teammates.”

First-year LCC Head Coach Megan Hudson said she did not know what to expect from this year’s team, having only three returning players, nine freshmen and a new coaching staff.

“We knew we had a lot of great pieces and a strong recipe to bring them together, yet you never truly know how you’ll stack up until you get going,” Hudson said.

LCC’s next game will be Wednesday, Dec. 6, at St. Clair Community College.

The Stars look to continue their win streak against a team which is also getting national-ranking votes. Hudson said the Stars have to continue to make adjustments based on fine tuning their ball stats.

“We are working to decrease our unforced turnovers, which will come in time as the game slows down for our freshmen,” Hudson said.
