PLYMOUTH – The Ancilla College women’s basketball team struggled to execute on the offensive end, connecting on just 28 percent of their shots, as they lost to Lake Michigan College 57-43 in MCCAA Western Conference play on Wednesday.
Shalana Murray posted another double-double for the Lady Chargers (5-14, 3-8 MCCAA Western) this season with 10 points and 13 boards on the night. Meghan Brown also had 10 points for Ancilla.
“We did not execute well on the offensive end,” said Ancilla women’s basketball coach Dave Liverance. “We did not execute the fundamentals well. We must give credit to Lake Michigan for the way they defended us.”
Barbara Johnson was the only player in double figures for Lake Michigan (15-5, 10-2 MCCAA Western), leading all scorers with 18 points.
“I thought our defense played well enough to win the game,” said Liverance. “We rebounded the ball well.
“We have several players out due to injury and we need other players to step up and fill those voids.”
The Lady Chargers resume play on Saturday, Feb. 12 when they host conference rival Kalamazoo Valley Community College as part of the “Chargers for Change” fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. Tipoff is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. EST.
