The Lakeland College women's basketball team suffered its second consecutive loss on Tuesday, dropping a 73-62 decision to visiting Wisconsin Lutheran College.
The Muskies (2-3, 1-2 NAC) just never looked comfortable against the Warriors (5-2, 3-0 NAC) who came out on fire, taking an early six point lead that would set the tone for the game.
Wisconsin Lutheran would take an eight point, 35-27 lead into the half. The Muskies were out rebounded and out shot in the first half, with the Warriors holding a 24-16 advantage on the boards and 40 percent to 36 percent advantage shooting.
Lakeland was able to put together a run in the second half, but it wouldn't be enough as the Warriors forced the Muskies to make poor shots and just proved to be the better team. Lakeland didn't seem to have an answer for Rachel Johnson who had a huge second half, scoring 21 of her 25 points in the second.
For the game, the Muskies shot 39 percent (23-59) from the field, 37.5 percent (9-24) from the 3-point arc, and 100 percent (7-7) from the free throw line. The Warriors finished with a 43.8 percent (28-64) mark from the field, while shooting 26.3 percent (5-19) from three and 75 percent (12-19) from the line. Wisconsin Lutheran out rebounded Lakeland 44-29 as well as winning the paint, 32-18, both key to the victory.
Junior Becky Mayo led the Muskies with 15 points and seven rebounds, while sophomore Taylor Jandrin added 13 points, including 3-of-3 from the three point line. Junior Dana Henrichs added 12 points for Lakeland.
The Muskies will look to return to their winning ways on Thursday, Dec. 8, when they travel to Mequon, Wis. to face Concordia University Wisconsin at 7 p.m.
