Gameday Game Recap:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (1/17/09)-- Concordia knocked down 27 of their 31 free throws in the second half, received double-digit scoring from all five starters and cruised past St. Kate's 101-78 in St. Paul on Saturday. The 101 points scored by the Cobbers is the most in a single game since the 1998-99 season when they downed St. Olaf 104-74. The win pushes CC into a three-way tie for first place in the MIAC standings. Concordia is now 8-2 in league play and tied with Gustavus and St. Ben's. The Blazers allowed the three-way logjam at the top when they lost to Hamline on Saturday. The Cobbers are now 9-4 overall and have won seven of their last eight games.

A pair of Concordia guards led all scorers in the game. Senior Jenna Freudenberg and junior Sara Sorbo had 20 points each and both filled up the stat sheet in many columns. Freudenberg also had four rebounds, two assists and two steals while Sorbo added five rebounds and a game-high six steals. Freudenberg has now scored at least 19 points in four of the past five games. Sorbo's six steals push her league-leading season total to 45. She has had at least two steals in every game this season and has had at least four steals in three of the past four games.

The three remaining CC starters all had at least 10 points in the game. Jenna Green was 2-for-2 from 3-point range and finished with 12 points and Lindsey Schultz and Erica Nord both added 10 points. It's the second straight game that Nord has scored in double figures.

St. Kate's (8-5/5-5 MIAC) was led by Brooke Hakanson who was 7-for-11 from the floor and had 15 points to go along with a game-high seven rebounds. Laura Kalbfell added 13 points and four rebounds.

Concordia finished the game by making 33 of their 39 (84.6%) free throw attempts in the game. Both numbers are season highs. The 33 made foul shots is the most in a single game since before the 1998-99 season. The Cobbers have now made 55 free throws in their past two games. CC shot 50.8% (30-for-59) from the floor and 8-for-17 (47.1%) from 3-point range. Concordia has shot better than 40.0% from behind the arc in their past four consecutive games.

The Wildcats shot a respectable 42.6% (29-for-68) from the field and 41.2% (7-for-17) from the 3-point line. Unfortunately they only went to the foul line 16 times in the game and converted on 13 of those chances.

Concordia will get back into the three-game work week. The Cobbers will play at St. Olaf on Monday, Jan. 19 at 5:30 p.m. and then return home to face two of the top four teams in the league. CC will host St. Thomas on Wednesday and then fellow league leader Gustavus on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 1 p.m.
