Real Audio Game File: 1st Half Archived Broadcast - 2nd Half Archived Broadcast
MOOORHEAD-- All good things must come to an end, and in the final 6:38 of Concordia's MIAC semifinal game against St. Ben's, the Mandy Pearson-Jamie Visness era in Cobber women's basketball officially came to a close.

The Cobbers were outscored 18-8 in the crucial stretch at the end of the game and fell to the Blazers 77-73. The loss ends the careers of the two Concordia seniors as they finish their season with a 19-5 overall mark. The Cobbers finished the regular season with a 17-3 record in conference play. The loss snaps Concordia's 15-game winning streak. It is also the team's first loss to an MIAC opponent at home in 2004-05.(More

Cobbers Finish Regular Season in Style, Pound Pipers 93-62 to Run Win Streak to 15!
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score
ST. PAUL-- If there was any question whether Concordia would carry momentum into the conference tournament, the Cobbers quickly posted a thundering answer as they pounded Hamline for 93 points en route to a 93-62 victory. The win pushes Concordia's winning streak to 15 games, which is the longest since the national championship team of 1987-88 also won 15 straight. It is the fifth longest streak in program history.

The Cobbers finish the regular season with a 17-3 record in the MIAC, which gives them the second seed for the conference tournament, which begins next week. Concordia's second-place finish was cemented after league-champion Carleton beat Bethel 79-63. The runner-up finish is the highest for the Cobbers since the 1993-94 campaign where they also finished second and advanced to the NCAA tournament. Concordia is now 19-4 overall and is one victory away from their second straight 20-win season.(More

Cobbers Clinch First-Round Bye and Home Semifinal Game in 76-66 Win Over St. Thomas.
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures - Gameday Program (word)
MOORHEAD-- Concordia took care of business in the opening 20 minutes of play, jumping to a 17-point lead, and then held on to beat St. Thomas 76-66. 

With the win, the Cobbers clinch a bye in the first round of the MIAC playoffs and a home game in the semifinals. The victory also pushes Concordia's win streak to 14 games. That is the sixth longest winning streak in school history and longest since the 1988-89 season when they won 16 consecutive games. Concordia also keeps an outside chance of an MIAC title alive. With one game remaining in the regular season, the Cobbers trail Carleton by one game. The Knights, winners at home against St. Mary's on Wednesday, would have to lose their final game of the year at Bethel coupled with a Concordia win at Hamline, in order for the Cobbers to share the MIAC crown and claim the #1 seed in the playoffs.(More)

Terrific Tori Helps Cobbers Trounce Bethel 83-64. Concordia's Win Streak Reaches 13!
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score
ST. PAUL-- Tori Ehlert loves playing against Bethel. Concordia's junior post player has posted two of her top three point totals as a collegiate player against the Royals. On Saturday, she turned, twisted and battled her way to a career-high 18 points and a game-high nine rebounds. Her presence on the floor sparked the Cobbers to their 13th straight win as they pounded Bethel 83-64.

The 13-game winning streak is the longest stretch of consecutive victories since the 1989-90 season when they also won 13 straight games. The longest winning streak for a Cobber women's team is 25 games. That remarkable feat was accomplished at the end of the 1981-82 season and at the beginning of the 1982-83 campaign. The victory also moves Concordia one step closer to securing a first-round bye in the conference tournament and the chance to host one of the two semifinal games. If the Cobbers win one of their last two games, they will finish no worse than second place and claim the free pass into a home game in the semifinals.(More)

Out of Sync Cobbers Win Turnover Fest With Augsburg 61-47.
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures - Gameday Program (word)
MOORHEAD-- Country music followers have We Fest, heavy metal music aficionados can partake in Oz Fest and on Wednesday fans of no-flow, helter-skelter basketball were treated to Turnover Fest.

Concordia and Augsburg combined to commit 51 turnovers and miss 85 shots in a game that lacked the usual ebb and flow of a top-flight college game. Miscue-itis was not limited to one single player. A combination of 17 different players from both teams committed at least one turnover in the game. The Cobbers eventually outlasted the Auggies 61-47 to win their 12th straight game and keep their hold on second place in the MIAC. With three games left to play, Concordia needs only two wins to earn second place, a bye in the first round of the playoffs and a home game for the semifinals of the MIAC tournament.(More)

Cobbers Tame Wildcats to Earn 11th Straight Victory!
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score
ST. PAUL-- Concordia withstood a late offensive surge from St. Kate's and hung on to claim an 85-77 victory over the Wildcats. The win pushes the Cobbers' current winning streak to 11 games, which is the longest in program history since the 1989-90 Cobber team won 13 in a row on their way to losing in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament. The 11 straight wins is currently the tenth longest streak in NCAA Division III. 

Concordia's win, coupled with St. Ben's losing at St. Mary's, moves the Cobbers into sole possession of second place in the MIAC. Concordia is now 13-3 in league play and can clinch a first round bye, and a home semifinal playoff game, by winning three of their remaining four league games. The Cobbers are now 15-4 overall.(More

Cobbers Cross Off Two More on Season Checklist as They Upset #17 Carleton 65-52.
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score
NORTHFIELD-- Check two more items off the 2004-05 "to do" list for Concordia's two seniors and second-year head coach Jessica Rahman. In one magical defensive sweep, the Cobbers beat league-leading, and nationally-ranked, Carleton for the first time since the 1999-00 season and in the process clinched a spot in the MIAC playoffs.

Concordia limited Carleton to just 34.0% (17-of-50) from the floor and came away with a 65-52 victory over the 17th-ranked Knights. The Cobbers used a 7-0 run at the end of the first half to take a 35-25 lead into the break and never looked back in the final 20 minutes. 

The victory runs Concordia's winning streak to 10 games, which is the longest since the 1992-93 season when they also won 10 straight. It is currently the tenth longest winning streak in the nation.(More

Mandy Pearson Named MIAC Co-Player of the Week.
Concordia senior point guard Mandy Pearson (Watkins, Minn./Eden Valley-Watkins HS) was named the MIAC Co-Player of the Week for her tremendous four-game performance last week. It is the second time this season that she has been named the MIAC Co-Player of the Week. She was honored with the award on December 13 when she shared the award with Hamline's Carolyn Korchik.

Pearson averaged 19.5 points per game and 8.5 assists per game, leading the Cobbers to a perfect 4-0 record last week and into second place in the MIAC. 

She had her biggest game of the week on Monday against nationally-ranked St. Ben's when she scored a career-high 31 points and had eight assists. She shot 61.5% (8-of-13) from the floor and 100% (3-of-3) from 3-point range against one of the league's top defenses. She was the key factor in Concordia's 83-75 upset win over the Blazers. 

On Wednesday against Gustavus, Pearson scored 17 points and dished off another eight assists. Over the weekend, she scored 20 points in Concordia's 73-62 win over St. Olaf on Saturday, and then collected her first double-double of the year in the Cobbers' 65-63 win over St. Mary's on Sunday. Against the Cardinals, she scored 10 points but had a season-best 13 assists. 

Pearson shares the award with Carleton junior Megan Vig. Vig averaged 23.5 points and shot a stunning 69.2 percent from the floor in helping Carleton post two wins this week and move three games ahead of the pack in the MIAC race.

Cobbers Stumble Across Ironman Finish Line, Hang On to Beat St. Mary's 65-63.
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures
MOORHEAD-- Like a triathlete stumbling over the course of the final 200 yards to the finish line, Concordia somehow willed themselves to come back from an 11-point halftime deficit and finished their four-game, seven-day Ironman endurance test by beating St. Mary's 65-63. The Cobbers completed the tiring, week-long odyssey by posting a perfect 4-0 record. 

The Cobbers, nursing tired legs and a variety of aches and pains, went on a 13-0 run at the start of the second half, and held the Cardinals to only 20 points in the second half to beat St. Mary's for the third straight time. The victory is the Cobbers' ninth consecutive win and puts them .5 game ahead of St. Ben's for second place in the MIAC. Concordia is now 11-3 in conference play and 13-4 overall. The Cobbers finish the month of January with a 9-1 record. In the past two seasons they have posted a combined 19-2 record in the opening month of the year.(More

Seniors Pace the Way in Cobbers' 73-62 Victory Over St. Olaf.
Gameday: Gameday Recap - Box Score - Action Pictures
MOORHEAD-- Three weeks before the end of the regular season, the Concordia coaching staff decided to pay tribute to the two seniors on the roster. In the end, it was the two seniors that contributed to the Cobber victory celebration. Jamie Visness scored a game-high 21 points and Mandy Pearson added another 20 as Concordia kept a pesky St. Olaf team from rallying in the second half and posted a 73-62 win. 

The win was the eighth straight for Concordia, and ties them for second place in the MIAC because of St. Ben's loss at Carleton on Saturday. The eight-game winning streak is the longest last season when they won 10 consecutive games. The Cobbers are now 10-3 in the MIAC and 12-4 overall. St. Olaf falls to 3-10 in the MIAC and drops their overall mark to 4-13.(More

Concordia senior guard Mandy Pearson (Watkins, Minn.) was named the MIAC Co-Player of the Week for her history making performance this past week. Amazingly, it is the first time in her career that she has earned player of the week honors. 

Pearson became the first player in Concordia women's basketball history to record 1,000 points and 500 assists as she scored 25 points and added eight assists in the Cobbers' 77-76, overtime win at Saint Mary's.
