Gameday Game Recap:

MOORHEAD, Minn. (2/11/09)-- The drama and game were over at the 12:42 mark of the first half. Concordia senior guard Jenna Freudenberg drove down the lane, stopped at the 12-foot mark and hit a jumper to give the Cobbers a 15-11 lead - a lead they would never relinquish. More importantly the field goal gave Freudenberg her 1,000th career point. She went on to score a game-high 23 points as the Cobbers beat Macalester 71-57 in Moorhead on Wednesday.

Freudenberg becomes the 22nd player in Cobber history to achieve the 1,000-point mark in her career. She entered the game with 996 career points and now has 1,019 for her three-plus year career.

The win keeps Concordia on pace to earn the No.2 seed in the MIAC and earn a bye in the first round of the conference tournament and a home game in the semifinals. The Cobbers are now 16-6 overall and 15-4 in league play. CC needs to win two of their final three regular season games to clinch the No.2 seed.

Macalester (10-12/7-11 MIAC) came out of the gate quickly in the first half as they stormed out to an 8-3 lead in the first 3:30 of the opening period. Concordia then went on a 6-0 run and started to find their rhythm on offense. That's when Freudenberg hit a pair of consecutive jumpers in the lane to get her 1,000th point and give CC the spark and the lead. It would be the start of a 11-0 run that would put Concordia in control of the game for good. The Cobbers finished off the first half with a 36-26 lead and then extended the margin to 18 points in the first 6:32 of the second period. CC pushed the lead to as many as 27 points before the Scots were able to close on a 13-0 run to cut the final margin to 71-57.

Freudenberg was 4-for-5 from 3-point range and 8-for-14 from the field to lead the Concordia offense. She was one of three CC players in double figures. Jenna Green and Maggie Bauernfeind had 10 points each. Lindsey Schultz added seven points and a game-high seven rebounds.

Macalester was led by reserve guard Majra Mucic who finished with 12 points and five assists. Ann Baltzer had 11 points as the pair was the only two Scot players with more than nine points in the game.

Concordia held a 34-10 statistical advantage in points in the paint and a 30-13 edge in points off of turnovers. The Cobber transition game turned 17 Macalester turnovers into 30 points. CC shot 47.4% (27-for-57) from the floor and 44.4% (8-for-18) from 3-point range.

The Cobbers will host St. Kate's on Saturday, Feb. 14 at 3 p.m.
