Women's Basketball Renewing Rivalries

Lyndon State College women's basketball is ready for conference play.

Preparation for the team's first North Atlantic Conference game at Colby-Sawyer began in the Gordon Classic Gordon College Tournament in Wenham, Massachusetts. The Lady Hornets posted mixed results with a 62-50 win over Newbury College and a 47-41 loss to Gordon College.

Head coach Vinnie Maloney noted that the team needs to address the finer aspects of the game.

"The mental aspect is big, and that's where most of our lapses were. It wasn't from effort or desire to get after it, which was really pleasing," Maloney said.

Some players are really shining after tournament play. Forward Donna Lawson currently leads the NAC in rebounds per game (11.0), and is second in points per game (18.5). Meanwhile, guard Naomi White is currently tied for the NAC lead in three-point percentage (50.0) and is fifth in RPG (9.5).

Maloney believes that the mental aspects are correctable, especially with the solid play from players like Lawson and White. This makes him confident in the team's ability to play well in its first game against a NAC opponent.

"They got their hands full, but I think they're ready," Maloney said.

First taste of NAC competition did not go well for the Lady Hornets, as they recorded a 85-43 loss to Colby-Sawyer.
