Gameday Game Recap:

NORTHFIELD, Minn. (1/19/09)-- For the third straight game Concordia used their up-tempo offense to dictate the tempo and ran away with a 76-55 win at St. Olaf. It marks the third straight road game where the Cobbers have posted a 20-point margin of victory. The win also keeps CC tied atop the conference standings. Concordia is now 9-2 in league play and tied with St. Ben's for the MIAC lead. The Blazers downed Gustavus on Monday. CC is now 10-4 overall and has won three straight and eight of their past nine.

The game was won in the final minutes of the first half and the opening 10 minutes of the second period. The Cobbers and Oles were locked in a tight battle until Concordia put their foot on the accelerator and turned a tie game at 22-22 with just over five minutes to play in the opening half to a nine-point lead at the break and then into a 22-point game before the second period was less than half over. CC started the final half on a 19-6 run and never looked back as they beat the Oles for the 13th straight time.

Cobber freshman Jenna Green once again showed her long-range shooting skills. She went 4-for-5 from behind the arc and knocked down a game-high 21 points. Senior guard Jenna Freudenberg had the most overall game of any player on the floor. She finished with 16 points and chipped in five rebounds, four assists and one steal. Maggie Bauernfeind was the only other CC player with more than nine points. She connected on both of her attempts from 3-point range and had 12 points. Lindsey Schultz owned the glass as she recorded a career-high 14 rebounds. To make her outing even more impressive, she had more offensive rebounds than defensive. Schultz finished the game with eight offensive rebounds and six on the defensive end.

As a team Concordia shot 47.3% (26-for-55) from the field and 54.5% (6-for-11) from 3-point range. For the third straight game the Cobbers also enjoyed a decided edge from the foul line. CC was 18-for-26 from the line while the Oles only attempted 12 total free throws in the game.

St. Olaf (3-11/1-10 MIAC) shot 41.8% from the floor but the Cobber defense held the Oles to only 21.4% (3-for-14) from behind the arc.

The Oles were led by a trio of starters who all scored in double figures. Britta Hendrickson had 12 points, while Kelsey Oja added 11 and Elyse Erickson had 10.

Concordia will now return home for a pair of games that could determine their fate in the postseason. The Cobbers will host St. Thomas on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 5:45 p.m. and then square off against Gustavus on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 1 p.m. The Gusties are currently in third place in the MIAC standings and UST is tied for fourth.
