Lady Statesmen cagers downed by No. 15 Cardinal Stritch


William Penn University

MILWAUKEE, Wisc. — The William Penn women’s basketball team struggled from the floor in a 68-43 loss to No. 15 Cardinal Stritch at the La Quinta Stritch Classic Monday.

The Lady Statesmen (6-6) only allowed the Wolves (11-3) to make 39.1 percent of their attempts, but failed even more by shooting just 24.2 percent themselves.

Cardinal Stritch led 43-18 at intermission and it did not get any better for the Lady Statesmen. Taylor Reed paced William Penn with 12 points.

Janay Pritchett added nine points, while Sam Abens finished with eight. Three players, including Abens, paced the squad with six rebounds.

Katie Golomski and Brittany May each contributed six points.

“We were not good defensively,” Penn coach Mike Brown said. “We let our inability to make shots dictate how we wanted to play the game.  We have to get more from everyone.”
