Danielle Makins

Feb. 23, 2008

MARQUETTE - The Lake Superior State women's basketball team likes mornings afterall.

Second-year LSSU basketball coach Jamie Pewinski got away from the 6 a.m. practices last season, but the Lakers didn't have any problem coming together for a morning tilt at Northern Michigan on Saturday. After dominating from the three-point line to beat NMU on Jan. 30 in Sault Ste. Marie, the Laker post players controlled the rematch played at 11 a.m. in Marquette. Danielle Makins and Jaclyn Armstrong combined to total 30 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Lakers to a 79-64 victory.

Makins had two baskets and a steal to ignite an 11-0 run during a 2:27 span inside the 10-minute mark of the second half. Makins' steal led to a field goal by Emily Joseph. Joseph followed a Makins layup with a three-pointer, and Shalyn Beauchamp polished it off with another layup for a 69-51 LSSU command.

Makins tied her season scoring high, finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots. Armstrong scored 14 points. Fellow post player Alyssa Vanderwal was in foul trouble, but contributed four points, six rebounds and three blocked shots.

Joseph totaled 11 points, seven rebounds and four assists, while Amanda Epolito came off the bench to contribute 11 points. Beauchamp finished with nine points, four assists and two steals.

LSSU (11-14 overall, 7-10 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference), which led 35-28 at halftime, shot 52.5 percent from the field, including 6-of-11 from three-point range. The Lakers were 11-of-13 at the free-throw line and dominated the boards, 41-28.

Kelsey Deacon led NMU (9-17 overall, 4-14 GLIAC) with 19 points. The Wildcats shot 40 percent from the field, including 8-of-16 from three-point range. They were 8-of-13 at the free-throw line.

LSSU closes out its season Monday at Michigan Tech.
