Elkhart upped its Big East Conference record to 2-1 (2-2 overall). The Crusaders dropped to 1-2 in the BEC (1-4 overall).

The Resorters outscored Lutheran 35-12 in the second half to obliterate a 35-27 halftime defict. Elkhart had a balanced attack in the final half, led by senior guard Sonia Schubert who popped in 10 of her team-high 21 points. Paige Nelson scored all seven of her points for EL-G in the second half.

The Crusaders, keyed by hot three-point shooting, erased a sevenpoint EL-G lead to seize their eightpoint halftime advantage. Lutheran drained all seven of its three-pointers in the opening half, sparked by Morgan Gottowski’s five. Gottowski erupted for 19 of her team-best 21 points in the first half.

“We shot the ball better in this game and had better ball movement than the previous game [a 42-35 loss to Hilbert]. We played much better in the second half. We found their shooters in the second half,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

“I am very proud of how our kids responded in the second half.

“This was one of Sonia Schubert’s best overall games. She played solid defense, distributed the ball and did a good job helping out on defense. She controlled the game for us late,” said Kulow.

Schubert led her team in assists with five. Camrie Schmitz led in steals with six, followed by Schubert and Ellie Ausloos with five each. Kianna Bahr led in rebounds with eight.
