Last Week: The Wildcats visited Northwood University Thursday and outscored the Timberwolves over the last 30 minutes of game play. However, the team's final shot went into the basket but somehow popped out forcing a 56-53 defeat to the Timberwolves. On Saturday, the team saw two players set new career highs, and the team posted a season-best shooting performance to power to a 67-62 comeback victory at Saginaw Valley State University.
Dillinger's career day: Junior Sydney Dillinger (Houghton, Mich.) set several career highs in Saturday's game against the Cardinals. She posted her first-ever double-digit game, scoring 11 points and also dished out a career-best six assists. She also made a personal best of three three-pointers in the contest.
Delorit shows off her touch: Sophomore Baleigh Delorit (Algoma, Wis.) set a new career high with 12 points at Saginaw Valley Saturday. She finished the game hitting a career-best four three-pointers. In her past two appearances, she has hit seven threes.
Team shooting: The Wildcats used a season-best shooting performance to guide themselves to victory Saturday at SVSU. In addition to Delorit's four and Dillinger's three, freshman Elizabeth Lutz (Marshall, Wis.), sophomore Jessica Schultz (Mineral Point, Wis.) and junior Emily Schramek (Naperville, Ill./Benet Academy) all hit three-pointers. As a team, NMU hit 10 three-pointers, which is the most in a game since they hit 10 against Findlay University in 2014.
This season versus LSSU: The Wildcats have won the past eight matchups with the Lakers. In the first matchup this season, Schultz went for a career-high 22 points, hitting 12 free throws, to guide the NMU team to a 79-63 victory.
This season versus FSU: NMU struggled early and was unable to bounce back in a 62-52 defeat at FSU in January. The defeat ended a seven-game winning streak the Wildcats held over the Bulldogs.
