Gameday Game Recap:

WINONA, Minn. (1/11/09)-- On Saturday against St. Ben's, Concordia scored a total of 53 points and shot 33.3% from the field in a lopsided loss to the Blazers. On Sunday the Cobbers torched the nets for 45 points in the second half alone, shot a season-high 58.7% from the floor and cruised to a 82-56 win over St. Mary's in Winona. The victory helps erase the taste of the loss on Saturday and sends Concordia home on a one-game winning streak with a 7-2 mark in conference play and an 8-4 overall record. CC is currently in second place in the MIAC standings with two games to play in the first half of the conference season.

The 58.7% (27-for-46) from the field is not only a season high for the Cobbers but also the best shooting percentage in a single game since the 2004-05 season when CC shot 61.1% in the last game of the regular season.

Erica Nord was the poster girl for accurate shooting on Sunday. Nord did not miss a shot in the game. She went 7-for-7 from the floor, 4-for-4 for 3-point range and 5-for-5 from the free throw line and finished with a career-high 23 points. She was joined by fellow guard Jenna Freudenberg who also scored a career-high 23 points for the game. Freudenberg shot a mere 57.1% (8-for-14) from the floor and 40.0% (2-for-5) from behind the arc. The pair combined for 46 of the team's 82 points in the game. They were the only CC players with more than nine points. Lindsey Schultz led all players with eight rebounds in the game.

St. Mary's was led by Cherie Kulig who was 10-for-11 from the free throw line and finished with 22 points. The only other Cardinal player with more than six points in the game was Jess Miller who finished with nine points. As a team, the Caridinals shot 32.7% (16-for-49) from the floor and 35.3% (6-for-17) from 3-point range. SMU struggled from the free throw line, shooting only 64.3% in their 28 foul shot attempts.

Concordia will have a lighter load this week. After playing five games in the past eight days - a stretch where they went an impressive 4-1 - the Cobbers will play only one game in the next seven days. CC will play at St. Kate's on Saturday, Jan. 17 at 3 p.m.
