By Staff | Jan 31, 2008

In the top half of the Region XI standings, the Iowa Lakes women’s basketball team had little trouble defeating bottom-dweller AIB, 76-30, on Wednesday.

The Eagles, competing in their first season in Region XI, are 4-12 overall and have yet to win a conference game.

Iowa Lakes jumped out to a 36-16 halftime lead and even upped the intensity in the second half.

“Our defense was better, our intensity was better and we shot the ball better in the second half,” said Iowa Lakes coach Brian Radtke.

The Lakers were led by Shanda Novak’s double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds. She also had a pair of blocked shots.

Karissa Kramer contributed 11 points, six steals and four assists to the effort while Jazzmine Hall had 11 points and six steals in the win.

Iowa Lakes (16-5, 7-3) travels to Iowa Falls Saturday to play Ellsworth Community College.
