Anoka Ramsey 89 Western Tech 61
Saturday January 24th
The women really got off to a quick start at home against Western Tech. They scored 50 points in the first half. It was really led by Hannah Norton and Mataya Racek. Both of them were in double figures with Norton having 12 points and Racek having 10.
The second half did not get going like the first one did though. They only got seven points in the first five minutes. Good thing the defense was playing a whole lot better than the offense though. Neither team was making anything for a while but the Rams finally got some scoring to start up.
Running through the plays and getting easy layups seemed to be what was happening every single possession. This game really was not intense and once they got ahead they never turned around and looked back. They didn’t have any problem keeping the scoring up as they did score a total of 89 points.
The team was very well balanced on Saturday, as there were four players in double figures and two with more than 20 points. Racek ended up with 24 points and 14 rebounds, and Norton not far behind ending with 23. Maya DeLao finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds working the offense with lots of poise. The last one to get in double figures was Tanesha Ollie who had 10.
The team shot forty four percent, but it could’ve been a whole lot better if they had a made a few of their easy shots and it might have gotten them to 100. They did shoot forty five percent from beyond the arc, landing 14 total threes.
The Rams have now won two in a row and have been looking really good lately. They travel to Riverland on Wednesday, January 28th and look to keep things going behind Racek and DeLao.
