03/15 Oak Creek 46 Brookfield Central 25

Oak Creek defeated Brookfield Central, 46-25, at West Allis Central to capture a sectional championship and advance to the state tournament in Green Bay.  The loss left BC with a final record of 21-5, the second highest number of wins in program history.

03/13 Brookfield Central 45 DSHA 43

Jasmine Lewis shoots a jumper

Brookfield Central absorbed an 18-3 run by DSHA midway through Thursday night's game and responded with a 19-3 run of their own as they defeated the Dashers, 45-43, to advance to a sectional final on Saturday against Oak Creek.

With the Lancers leading 19-13 with just over four minutes to play in the second quarter, DSHA outscored them 12-3 to close the first half, then scored the first six points of the second half to take a 31-22 lead with four minutes to play in the third period. That's when Nicole Hinz lit the fuse on the Lancers' comeback with a 3-point bomb from four feet beyond the 3-point line. Seven more unaswered points put BC back in front, 32-31.

DSHA's Arike Ogunbowale hit a three to give the Dashers their last lead of the game, 34-32.  The Lancers regained the lead on Abby Miller's third three of the game. They built the lead to seven points at 41-34 with a minute to play on buckets by Jasmine Lewis and Lydia Rohde and free throws by Rohde and Caroline Busch. Miller and Rohde each hit two free throws down the stretch to put the game away.

Hinz had 14 points to lead Brookfield scoring.  Rohde and Miller each had 11 points.

The victory was the Lancers' 21st of the season, tying the 1984-85 state championship team for the second-most wins in a season in program history (2008-09, 22 wins).

Saturday's game is at West Allis Central at 2 pm.  The game will be televised on Time Warner Cable.  Set your DVR to record it, and come to the game!

03/08 Central Captures Regional Championship

Abby Miller's 3-pointer sparked Central's 3rd quarter rally.

Brookfield Central advanced to a semi-final game against DSHA in the West Allis Sectional of the WIAA tournament, defeating Milwaukee South, 74-17, on Thursday, and Milwaukee Riverside, 42-37, on Saturday.  The semi-final will be played at Brookfield East on Thursday at 7 p.m.  DSHA defeated Milwaukee King on Saturday, 62-53, in a Regional final.

Brookfield started fast against Riverside and led 12-4 after a quarter. The Tigers roared back and scored nine unanswered points in the first three minutes of the second quarter to take a 13-12 lead.  Riverside outscored the Lancers, 21-5, in the quarter and took a 25-17 lead into the locker room at the half.

Brookfield scored the first seven points of the second half to close to within a point.  Abby Miller drained a long three and then scored again on the next possession when she rebounded a missed shot in traffic and put the ball in after a beautiful spin move.  The quarter ended with the Lancers leading 29-27.

Riverside scored the first four points of the fourth quarter and took its final lead of the game, 31-29.  A basket by Alena Moro tied things at 31 at about the 4:30 mark.  A layup by Nicole Hinz and another basket and a free throw by Moro put the Lancers ahead 36-31. The lead grew to 40-32 when Lydia Rohde hit a shot and then a pair of free throws with just under a minute to play. Rohde was the game's leading scorer with 13 points. Hinz had 18 rebounds, the most by a Central player in over two years.

The victory gave the Lancers a record of 20-4.  It is just the third 20-win season in the program's history.  The state championship team of 1984-85 was 21-5 and the 2008-09 team was 22-2.

03/05 Central Opens Tournament Against Milwaukee South

Brookfield Central will play the Milwaukee South Cardinals Friday night at 7 p.m. at Brookfield Central in the Lancers' first WIAA tournament game.  South defeated Bay View, 48-31, on Tuesday to advance to Friday's game.  The Cardinals play in the City Conference - Blue Division, where they finished third with a record of 6-6.  South is 8-15 overall and is the 8th seed in the Brookfield East Regional.

03/05 Rohde, Busch finish 1-2 in 3-Point FGs

Lydia Rohde and Caroline Busch

Lydia Rohde led the GMC in 3-point field goals, hitting 41 of them in the 14 game conference season.  Caroline Busch finished tied for second with Arike Ogunbowale (DSHA) and Taylor Klug (Sussex Hamilton) with 19 threes. Nicole Hinz made 15 threes in conference games, good for the fifth spot on the list.  The complete top-10 list appears on the GMC tab on this site.

03/04 GMC Scoring Leaders

Arike Ogunbowale led the Greater Metro Conference in scoring for the second year in a row. Ogunbowale scored 296 points and averaged 21.1 per game.  The rest of the top 5: Katie Salmon (257; 18.4/g), Taylor Klug (210; 15.0), Lydia Rohde (204; 14.6), and Angela Pichelar (182; 13.0).

02/27 Brookfield Central 64 West Allis Central 29

Rachel Kolb drives the baseline against West Allis Central

A 64-29 victory over West Allis Central in the Lancers' final regular season game was marked by several notable occurences: 

  • Lydia Rohde scored 11 points to give her 903 for her career and move her past Joana Bielefeld (901) into second place on Central's all-time scoring list.
  • Alena Moro scored a career-high 13 points to lead Brookfield scoring.
  • Nicole Hinz missed a free throw for the first time since December 28.  Nicole is 34 of 38 for the year (89.5%) and 29 of 31(93.5%) in conference games.  The miss snapped a streak of 22 consecutive made free throws since the game against Richland Center in Baraboo.
  • Caroline Busch made two 3-pointers to give her 30 for the season. That is the 5th highest total over at least the past 10 seasons and the most by a freshman. Lydia Rohde has 56 this year and had 42 in 2011-12. Nicole Hinz had 39 last season. Erin Lueder had 38 in 2007-08.
  • The Lancers had 21 assists to give them 345 assists for the year, breaking the old record of 338 set by the 2011-12 team.


Rohde had 6 assists and Busch had 5.  Hinz was the leading rebounder with 10.

Next game: Friday, March 6, 7 p.m. at Brookfield Central against the winner of Tuesday's game between Bay View (2-19) and Milwaukee South (7-15).

02/25 Oak Creek 40 Brookfield Central 35

A 9-0 run by Oak Creek to close out the third quarter proved to be the difference in Tuesday's game. Prior to that run the Lancers outscored the visiting Knights 22-19, and they outscored them 13-12 afterward, but in the end it added up to 40-35 defeat to the third-ranked D1 team in the state.

Trailing 28-22 at the start of the final period, the Lancers closed to within 2 at 31-29 but could get no closer.  Oak Creek led 38-35 and had the ball with less than 20 seconds to play, but a traveling call with 14 seconds gave Brookfield the ball and one last opportunity to forge a tie.  After an Oak Creek foul, the Lancers tried to inbound the ball with 7 seconds to play, but the pass was stolen and the Knights scored on a layup at the final buzzer to account for the final score.

Lydia Rohde led Brookfield scoring with 15 points. Oak Creek's Stephanie Kostowicz had 18 for Oak Creek.

The Regional champ plays on Saturday, March 15, for the chance to go to the State Tournament Semifinals in Green Bay.  Top seeds in the other half of the Lancers' sectional include Oak Creek and Franklin.

02/21 Brookfield Central 49 Menomonee Falls 22

Alena Moro scores against Menomonee Falls

Menomonee Falls had no answer for Alena Moro in the first quarter of Friday's game.  Moro, whose career-high in scoring is 10, poured in that many points in the first 8 minutes of the game, sparking the Lancers to a 16-6 lead in the penultimate conference contest for both teams.  Lydia Rohde dropped a pair of threes en route to scoring 10 points to share game-high honors with Moro.

The Lancers entered the game shooting 70.7% from the free throw line, but were an abysmal 4-18 against Falls.  After Jasmine Lewis made the first two free throws of the game, BC missed its next 8 attempts, then converted just 2 of its final 8 attempts. 

Central continues to knock down three pointers, though, hitting five of them in the game, two by Rohde and one apiece by Emma Brauer, Molly Magnus and Caroline Busch.

The victory enabled BC to keep pace with conference leader DSHA.  DSHA remains one game ahead of both BC and Sussex Hamilton with one conference game to play. BC will square off with West Allis Central on Feb 27 (at WAC), Hamilton will take on Menomonee Falls, and DSHA will play Brookfield East at East.

Next game:  Tuesday, February 25, vs. Oak Creek at Brookfield Central

02/20 Lancers Set Team Mark For Three-Pointers

For the fourth year in a row, the Lancers have established a school record for three point field goals made.  This year's squad has hit 120 three-pointers. The record was 93, established in 2003-04, until the 2010-11 season when 96 three-point shots found the bottom of the net.  A year later the 2011-12 team hit 100 threes.  Then, last year, the Lancers pushed the season record to 117.

02/18 Brookfield Central 66 West Allis Central 21

Brookfield Central junior forward, Molly Magnus

After a 6-6 start to the game, Brookfield Central outscored the visiting West Allis Central Bulldogs 56-11 through the end of the third quarter to lead, 62-17. With a running clock in the fourth quarter, each team scored four points as the Lancers beat the Bulldogs, 66-21.


The victory kept BC in a second-place tie with Sussex Hamilton, which defeated Menomonee Falls, 60-29. BC and Hamilton each are 9-3, one game in back of DSHA. DSHA will play Brookfield East on Friday.


Lydia Rohde was Brookfield's leading scorer for the 6th straight game. Rohde had five threes and a pair of free throws for 17 points. She also had five assists. Jasmine Lewis went 6-6 from the floor and had a career-high 13 points. Emma Brauer had 11 points, hitting 3 of 3 from the floor and all four of her free throws. Brauer also had a game-high five steals. Alena Moro had 8 rebounds.


Central scored 44 points in the first half, a season high. The Lancers allowed only one point in the third quarter and five points in the second half, the fewest points they have allowed in a quarter and in a half this year.


Next game: Friday, February 21 (7:30) against Menomonee Falls (6-6; 8-11) at Brookfield Central

02/17 Lancers Ranked; Rohde Mentioned in Journal-Sentinel Article

Brookfield Central once again is ranked in the Journal-Sentinel's Area Top-10, occupying the 9th spot in the rankings.  DSHA, who BC beat Friday for the second time this season remains in the 6th slot.  The top-ranked team is Oak Creek, Central's opponent on Tuesday of next week.

Lydia Rohde was mentioned in the Journal-Sentinel's "Focus on Girls Basketball" where her ascent to the top of BC's career assists list was noted.  Here's a link to the article.

02/16 Statistical Odds and Ends

Some statistical odds and ends for your consideration and edification:

  • Lydia Rohde had 8 assists against DSHA Friday, the single game high by any BC player this year. She now has 307 assists in her career, and is the only BC player with more than 300.
  • Caroline Busch had career highs Friday against DSHA in shots attempted (10), shots made (5), and tied her career best for 3-pointers in a game (3). Her 13 points was one off her career high of 14, which also came against DSHA when the teams met in January;
  • The 24 points scored by the Lancers in the fourth quarter against DSHA and the 42 points it scored in the second half tied season highs by BC in each category;
  • The 3-pointer Jasmine Lewis made at the end of the third quarter against DSHA was the first 3-pointer of her career and was the only 3-point shot she has attempted this season;
  • Alena Moro is shooting 61.9% from the floor for the year. Alena also has the distinction of having made the only three point shot she she ever took as a varsity player (11/29/2012 against Madison East);
  • 57.1% of Emma Brauer's rebounds (44 of 77) have been offensive rebounds. Of the eight other players on the team with 25 or more rebounds, there is nobody with an offensive rebound percentage higher than 36%.
  • Over the past two games, the Lancers are 28-31 from the free throw line (90.3%).
  • Lydia Rohde's 15 points against DSHA gives her 850 for her career and moves her into third place for career points at BC. She passed Erin Lueder (2006-2010) who had 849.
  • The Lancers had four players score in double figures against Hale on Tuesday and against DSHA on Friday. That happened only once (vs Baraboo) in the first 16 games of the season.
  • Lydia Rohde leads the GMC in 3-point field goals with 33. Nicole Hinz and Caroline Busch are tied for third with 15 each. DSHA's Arike Ogunbowale is second with 17.

02/14 Brookfield Central 63 DSHA 58

Emma Brauer scores following a steal in the first quarter.

It was appropriate that on Valentine's Day the Lancers showed a lot of heart in beating 6th-ranked DSHA for the second time this year.

BC led 12-8 after one quarter but trailed 25-21 at the half. After closing to 27-25 early in the third period, Brookfield saw the Dashers go on a 13-2 run to take a 40-29 lead. The margin was nine with 2.7 seconds to go in the third quarter when Lydia Rohde took an inbound pass, passed upcourt to Jasmine Lewis, and Lewis nailed a three as time expired to make it a 45-39 game.

Brookfield completed a 12-2 run and went ahead 48-47 with 4:55 to play. The Dashers led 50-48 when a BC three put them up, 51-50, with 3:46 to go.  DSHA responded with an 8-0 run over the next two minutes to take a 58-51 lead with 1:36 left to play.

Down, but not out, the Lancers scored the final 12 points of the game. Lydia Rohde made an off-balance shot from the middle of the lane to tie things at 58-all with 36.7 seconds to go. Fouled on the drive, Rohde sank the go-ahead free throw. 

After another defensive stop, Nicole Hinz took a pass at midcourt and was fouled with 21.5 seconds on the clock.  Hinz, who entered the game as the leading free throw shooter in the Greater Metro Conference and shooting 88% at the line for the year, converted the front end of the bonus and then the second free throw to put the Lancers up 61-58.

With the clock ticking down, the Dashers looked for a three point shot. Arike Ogunbowale missed a three from the right wing with about 5 seconds left. The Lancers rebounded, sank two free throws following a technical foul on the Dashers, and went home winners. The 42 points scored by Brookfield in the second half matched their season high for scoring in a half.

Rohde led the Lancers in scoring with 15. Emma Brauer had 13 and, as usual, was brilliant on defense. Hinz and Caroline Busch each had 13 points as well.

The victory, coupled with Brookfield East's win over Sussex Hamilton, left Central tied for second with Hamilton at 8-3, one game in back of DSHA.

Next game:  Tuesday, Feb 18, vs West Allis Central at BC

02/14 Rohde Tops In Career Assists

Six assists by Lydia Rohde against West Allis Hale on Tuesday were enough to push her to the top of the BC career assists list.  Lydia now has 299 assists, one more than Erin Lueder's 298 (2006-10). Congratulations on a great accomplishment!

02/11 Lancers Top Hale As Records Fall

Brookfield Central defeated West Allis Hale, 64-41, at Central.  Lydia Rohde hit four three-pointers to establish a new school record for threes in a single season. Rohde has 43 threes for the year, breaking the mark of 42 she established two seasons ago. 

Rohde also may have climbed to the top spot at BC for career assists.  She entered the game just five shy of tying Erin Lueder's 298. Her assist total will be updated in a day or two after review of game film.

The Lancers set a school record for best team free throw percentage in a game by converting all 12 of their attempts. Emma Brauer was 8-for-8 and Rohde was 4-for-4. The previous best was 92.3%, set againt Brookfield East last year when BC went 12-for-13 from the line.

In addition to Rohde, three other Brookfield players scored in double figures. Brauer had 13 points and Alena Moro and Caroline Busch each had 10.

02/10 Rohde, Hinz Semi-Finalists For Senior Awards

Lydia Rohde (L) and Nicole Hinz (R)

WisSports.net announced semifinalists for its annual High School Basketball Awards. Lydia Rohde was one of 15 seniors named in the "Shooter" category and Nicole Hinz was one of the 15 seniors in the "Wing" category.  Congratulations to both players.  Here are links to the full list in each of the five categories for which awards are given:

  Shooter   Post   Defense   Wing   Point Guard

02/07 Brookfield Central 60 Wauwatosa East 31

The Lancers snapped a two-game losing streak with a 60-31 victory against Wauwatosa East. Lydia Rohde scored a career-high 28 points, despite sitting out almost the entire fourth quarter. Alena Moro had 10 points for the Lancers, who had nine players score. Claire Haynes and Rohde had six rebounds apiece, while Caroline Busch and Rohde led in assists with 5 each.

Rohde connected on seven three-point shots, setting a school record. The old record of 6 was set by Rohde and Debbie Entzminger in separate games during the 2011-12 season. A couple of Rohde's threes were shot from so far out that if basketball had a four-point line, Rohde would now own that record as well. While Rohde was connecting on seven of eight three-point attempts, the rest of the Lancers were 0-16.

The 28 point performance moved Rohde into 4th place on the Lancers all-time scoring list with 825 points.  The three players ahead of her are Kelly Svetz (1994-97; 1,219 points), Joana Bielefeld (2005-09; 901), and Erin Lueder (2006-10; 849).

The Lancers almost climbed out of the hole they found themselves in at the end of the first half when they trailed Hamilton, 30-17.  Brookfield scored the first 11 points of the third quarter to narrow the Chargers' lead to 30-28, and held the Chargers scoreless until giving up a three in the final seconds of the period.  In the final quarter Hamilton outscored Brookfield 15-13 to hold on to the win.  The loss puts BC a game behind both Hamilton and DSHA in the loss column.

Hamilton's Hannah Menzia led all scorers with 19 points, 17 of them coming in the first half, and Taylor Klug added 14. Lydia Rohde had 17 for Brookfield, and Emma Brauer had 10.  The Chargers hit seven 3 point shots to the Lancers' four, the first time this season that an opponent has hit more threes than BC.

01/23 Central's Head-to-Head Record Against Opponents Since 2004-05

Curious about the Lancers' record against West Allis Hale over the last 10 years? (18-2)  Can't sleep at night because you're wondering if BC has played Germantown in the last decade? (January 11, 2005)  In a heated dispute with a Divine Savior Holy Angels alum about the results of the last 10 meetings between the Lancers and the Dashers? (BC has a 6-4 edge)

01/21 Lancers Ranked 8th In State, 6th In Area

The January 21 Wisconsin Basketball Coaches poll has Brookield Central ranked 8th in the state in Division 1.  Kimberly is the top ranked team. Among teams from the area, Oak Creek is 3rd, Arrowhead is 4th, DSHA is 9th and Waukesha West is 10th.

The Associated Press poll ranks BC 9th in the state in Division 1.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal ranks BC 6th among all schools in the area. The newspaper's weekly Focus on Girls Basketball column also talks about the Lancers' success in shooting threes, and makes specific mention of the long range prowess of Caroline Busch, Lydia Rohde, and Nicole Hinz.

01/20 Brookfield Central 57 Muskego 45

Lydia Rohde scored 26 points to lead Brookfield Central past Muskego, 57-45.  Rohde entered the game 8th on the Lancers' all-time scoring list and by the end of the evening had moved into 5th.  She now has 758 points.  Rohde passed Julie Baughn (736 points; 1994-96), Laura Culhane (738; 1996-00) and Anna Liewen (751; 2009-12). Next on the scoring ladder is Tara Swartz with 811 points.

The Lancers led 17-5 after one quarter. Rohde had 11 points for the Lancers and Nicole Hinz had the other 6.  The Lancers built a 29-11 lead late in the second quarter, but from that point on the 0-13 Warriors outscored Brookfield 34-28 and were able to close the gap to seven several times. Some clutch baskets by Rohde in the second half and solid free-throw shooting prevented the Warriors from getting any closer.

Next game:  Friday, January 24, at Menomonee Falls. Falls is 3-2 in the conference and 5-7 overall.

Nicole Hinz had 16 points against DSHA to lead Brookfield scoring

Nicole Hinz had 16 points against DSHA to lead Brookfield scoring

Brookfield Central grabbed a share of the Greater Metro Conference lead by beating Divine Savior Holy Angels, 55-50, at Brookfield Central.  BC is 4-1 and tied with DSHA. Sussex Hamilton and Brookfield East, each 3-1, play each other Friday night, so there will be a three-way tie for first after that game is played. The visiting Dashers entered the game ranked sixth in the state in Division 1.

After making a program-record 12 3-pointers against West Allis Hale in their previous game, the Lancers drilled nine more threes against DSHA, seven of them in the first half.  Brookfield took a 29-11 lead into the locker room at the half.

The second half was a different story altogether.  Central was ahead, 36-18, with 2:32 to play in the third period. Six minutes later, with 4:38 to play in the fourth quarter, the lead had shrunk to four, 39-35.  That's when Carol Busch applied a tourniquet with a three-point bomb from just in front of the Central bench, putting the Lancers up 42-35.  A little later Lydia Rohde nailed a pull-up jumper to make the score 46-38. Central scored it's last 9 points from the free throw line. Rohde's free throw with 7 seconds to play gave Brookfield a 55-47 lead. Arike Ogunbowale banked in a long three as time expired to make the final, 55-50.

Central made 18 of 24 free throws in the second half after a first half in which they never went to the line. The free throws were crucial because the Lancers made only three field goals in the second half - the shots by Busch and Rohde in the fourth quarter and a three from Nicole Hinz in the third period.  Nine of the Lancers' 14 field goals were 3-pointers, and no Brookfield player made more than one 2-point shot.

Hinz led Brookfield scoring with 16, and Busch had 14. Ogunbowale had 24 for the Dashers, 21 of them in the fourth quarter.

01/10 Brookfield Central 69 West Allis Hale 28

Lydia Rohde drains one of the four three's she made against Hale.

Boom goes the dynamite. There's something about playing in West Allis, and particularly at West Allis Hale, that brings out the best in Brookfield Central's long-range shooting. 

On December 5, 2003, BC set a team record by making 10 three-pointers at West Allis Central. Two years ago at Hale, the Lancers broke that record when they hit 11 shots from behind the arc. And Friday night, the Lancers set a new mark when they hit 12 three's at Hale.  Lydia Rohde had four, Nicole Hinz and Abby Miller had three apiece, and Emma Brauer and Caroline Busch each had one.

Rohde had 18 first-half points and finished with 22 despite sitting out the final 11 minutes of the game.  Hinz had 17, all of them in the second quarter, as she and Rohde combined for 35 of the Lancers' 41 points in the first half.

BC is 3-1 in conference games and 9-1 overall.  The 9-1 record matches that of the 2008-09 squad as the best in program history after 10 games.

Next up for Central (Thursday, Jan 16, at BC):  Divine Savior Holy Angels, currently ranked third in the state in division 1 in the WisSports.net coaches poll.

01/07 Emma Brauer Heating Up

Emma Brauer at the free throw line against Baraboo

12/18 Brookfield Central 44 Brookfield East 40

Abby Miller lines up a shot against Brookfield East.

Brookfield Central defeated Brookfield East, 44-40, at East on Tuesday night. Nicole Hinz had 19 points to lead all scorers. Central is 1-1 in the GMC, 5-1 overall.  East is 1-1 in conference play and 2-6 for the season.

Caroline Busch opened the scoring with a three from in front of the East bench, but East scored the next six points and led 11-9 at the end of the quarter.  With the Spartans ahead, 16-13, late in the second quarter, the Lancers ran off six in a row, three of them coming on Hinz's three with two seconds left, putting BC up 19-16 at the half.

Early in the fourth period, the Lancers looked to be on the verge of putting the game away when they moved in front by eight, 31-23, but East clawed back to within two at 31-29.  Angela Pichler kept the Spartans alive in the final quarter, scoring 11 of the the team's 18 points. 

Although turnovers and missed free throws down the stretch were a problem for the Lancers, credit them with making the big plays and the big shots when they had to be made. Hinz hit a couple of threes in the final period that brought the Central bench to its feet. Lydia Rohde made all four of her fourth quarter free throws, including two with 6.6 seconds to play and the Lancers up, 42-40, to seal the win.  It wasn't always pretty, but if you like to watch a team show some heart, answer the challenge, and find ways to win tough games, this one was a keeper.

12/13 Sussex Hamilton 32 Brookfield Central 31

Emma Brauer drives past Hamilton's Sammy Hagenow

If you told a Brookfield Central fan that the Lancers had just played a game against an opponent that scored two points in the first quarter, made only nine shots the entire game - none of them three-pointers, and shot 44% from the foul line, the response likely would be something like, "Great, how much did we win by?"  Alas, ...

The Lancers made a bucket midway through the first quarter, Sussex Hamilton converted a pair of free throws late in the period, and that was all the scoring in a first quarter that ended knotted at 2 points apiece.  The Chargers edged ahead in the second period, but a couple of baskets late in the half put the Lancers ahead, 11-10, at the intermission. 

Brookfield nudged the lead to five points at 16-11, then Hamilton reeled off 10 in a row as part of a 16-2 run that put them ahead 29-18.  Trailing 31-25 with under a minute to play, the Lancers managed a couple of threes from Caroline Busch but fell a point short.  Busch was the leading scorer for Brookfield, with eight points.

Nicole Hinz led all scorers with 14.  Caroline Bush was in double figures for the second game in a row with 11 points.  Emma Brauer had 8 points and continues to play outstanding defense on a nightly basis.

In holding an opponent under 30 points for the fourth consecutive game, the Lancers accomplished something they had never done before in Coach Wandrey's 16-season tenure. The 2008-09 team held three consecutive opponents under 30 points in January, 2009.

Three solid quarters outweighed one poor one and allowed the Lancers (2-0) to claim their second victory of the season, defeating Green Bay Preble (0-2), 35-28.
