The Tigers moved into a tie for the Big East Conference lead with Sheboygan Christian and Oostburg at 11-1. Christian dropped out of sole possession of first with a 44-33 loss to Oostburg Friday night. All three teams have one BEC game left before the league tournament which begins Saturday.

“I thought we handled their multiple zone defenses fairly well. We took care of the ball and rebounded well,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff whose team improved to 15-2 overall.

“Yancy was a force down low, even though she was double-teamed throughout the game. She made free throws and was great on the boards.”
