The LCC women’s basketball team had its seven-game win streak snapped by the Kellogg Community College Bruins, 56-47, on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at LCC.

The Stars record is now 5-1 in conference play and 18-4 overall.

It was a close game throughout, as both teams battled to try and create some distance. The Stars led at halftime 26-25, and by the end of the third quarter were up four points.

Kellogg outscored the Stars 23-10 in the fourth quarter to seal the win, as the Stars struggled to get shots to fall.

Sophomore guard Alivia Densmore was the Stars leading scorer with 11 points, including three three-pointers.

Densmore recently returned from an ACL tear at the end of last season. She was the Stars’ leading scorer during her freshman year and is starting to find her rhythm in her fifth game back.

Freshman guard Bailey Hosford was the second-leading scorer for the Stars with eight points.

On the defensive end, freshman center Kara Bartels led the charge. She had three blocks, two steals and grabbed 12 rebounds.

LCC first-year Head Coach Megan Hudson said she has to make adjustments quickly when the Stars are having a tough time knocking down shots on offense.

“We make adjustments such as attacking the basket, or more pick-and-roll actions,” Hudson said. “We also have our defense step up and help create offense.”

The Stars played three games in five days, and Hudson said that was tough on the women.

“We ran out of gas tonight,” Hudson said. “We have a few days off to rest and recover, mentally and physically. We’ll be ready to make our final push through the six remaining conference games.”

The Stars next game will be at Glen Oaks Community College on Wednesday, Feb. 7. This will give the Stars a one-week break from play after the three games in five days.

In their previous game against Glen Oaks, the Stars won convincingly 59-42. They look to do the same thing, being well rested off the break.
