DMACC pulls away from Lakers

By Staff | Feb 7, 2008

After trailing by a point at halftime, the Iowa Lakes women’s basketball team couldn’t keep up with DMACC in the second half as the visitors won 69-60 on Wednesday.

“I was pleased to see us play better than we have been,” said Iowa Lakes coach Brian Radtke. “They out-sized, but we played really well. Shanda (Novak) had a great night on the boards.”

DMACC (16-6,7-3-) led 34-33 after 20 minutes of play and won the second half 35-27.

“In the second half, we had a three to four minute stretch where we didn’t execute,” said Radtke.

Down five with just over a minute remaining, the Lakers were forced to begin fouling, but the Bears put the game away at the free throw line.

Iowa Lakes was led by point guard Samantha Boje with 12 points while Novak had a double-double with 10 points and 17 rebounds.

Jynna Coyle also finished with 10 points while Karissa Kramer contributed nine points along with a team-high three assists and three steals.

Jazzmine Hall scored seven points while Kym Zitzner had six, Kristen Patterson had four and Riccca Soper had two.

Iowa Lakes (16-7, 7-5) travels to Creston on Saturday to take on Southwestern Community College.
