At the MEC;

 Superb defense and balanced scoring sent the 5th rated Mohawks flying by the highly rated Class 2A Lynx. The ability of the Mohawks  back court players to break the Lynx pressure (Miranda Peters, Delaney Banowetz and Halle Kilburg) and turn that into easy scores was huge in the victory.

  The win gives the Class 1A  Mohawks a split with two of the state’s highly rated Class 2A  basketball teams.

  Delaney Banowetz started the Mohawks first quarter scoring   a pair of threes to key the 16-11 lead.

  The Lynx used some    three pt scoring of their own to cut a 10 point deficit to 31-28 at the half.  

 Marquette defense and  inside presence stayed strong  in   a 17-2 third quarter run that  literally blew the game open

 Tori Michels (18 points) and Miranda Peters 17 points  (ball-handling) keyed the big run.
