This past Tuesday, the Women’s basketball team played against Milwaukee School of Engineering for a second time and unfortunately failed to pull off the win.
Earlier in the season, the girls played this tough opponent in November losing to them by only two points with a score of 46-48. Tuesday was their chance to pull through and get back at MSOE.
Before the game in the locker room, teammates shared inspiring words with each other to hopefully get pumped enough to win. “Today’s a big game. We really want to win,” Sarah Budz said.
The game was close for both halves, with Dominican holding the lead for the majority of it, but ultimately lost by two points with a score of 55-57. Ashley Oliver and Kayla Blom led Stars, scoring 11 points each.
With this loss MSOE is now two games ahead of DU in the division. Regardless, the Stars keep their heads held high for the next few games with hope of making it to the playoffs.
