Around the MIAA

Adrian (5-7, 1-3)

Visiting UW-River Falls shot 53.3 percent from the field while holding Adrian to a 38.5 clip, and built a huge 50-19 first-half lead, on the way to an 84-61 non-conference win for the Falcons in women's basketball action on Saturday to wrap up the 2018 calendar year. Junior Alivia Kondrath led Adrian with 14 points, including 6-for-6 from the free throw line.


Albion (10-2, 3-1)

Maija Gillum (Grand Blanc, Mich.) provided a boost off the bench in Albion’s Dec. 30 victory at Maryville (Tenn.) College. Playing 23 minutes, she knocked down 5-of-9 shots from 3-point range to finish with a career-high 19 points. Gillum stuffed the box score with eight rebounds, three steals and three blocks… Albion has scored 80 or more in its last three games. The 89 points at Maryville was Albion’s second-highest total of the season and most against a Division III opponent this season. The Britons scored 100 in the Dec. 1 victory over Great Lakes Christian College.

Alma (6-7, 1-3)

The Alma College women's basketball team lost, 70-35, to the Aquinas College Saints Saturday (Dec. 29). The Scots fall to under .500 on the season with an overall record of 6-7. Madeline Barnauskas led the team with 14 points; the senior leads the Scots this season averaging just under 10 points per game. 


Calvin (7-5, 2-1)

Calvin will head back into conference play on Wednesday when it travels to Adrian for a 7:30 p.m. contest. The Knights are 7-5 overall after defeating the University of Northwestern of Ohio 87-63 in non-conference action on December 28. In the victory, senior Rachel Warners poured in 29 points to go with 13 rebounds as she notched her first collegiate double-double. Her point and rebound totals were both career-highs. Freshman Stephanie Coors dropped in 13 points while grabbing five rebounds and dishing out three assists. Freshman Gabby Timmer had 11 points and 12 rebounds to notch her fifth double-double of the season. Senior Becca Richards had 12 points including a pair of triples. Freshman point guard Abbie Cooley had a strong floor game with five points, five rebounds and four assists while turning the ball over just twice. Freshman Maddie Vander Zwaag had nine points and four assists and connected on a three-point basket. Vander Zwaag was one of five freshmen in the starting lineup. Also starting in the game were Cooley, Coors, Baylee GalanBrowne and Timmer. It marked the first time that Calvin has opened a game with five freshmen in the starting lineup.


No. 5/5 Hope (11-1, 3-0)

Hope closed out 2018 on a four-game win streak after a 73-44 win at eight-win Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday. The Flying Dutch's second win in less than 24 hours gave them the championship of Ohio Wesleyan's Bishop Classic/Hoops for Hope. Hope received a game-high 22 points from senior forward Francesca Buchanan (Grant, Mich.). Buchanan was named Tournament MVP. Sophomore forward Olivia Voskuil (Holland, Mich.) joined Buchanan on the all-tournament team. The day previous, Hope withstood a fourth-quarter rally from nationally-ranked UW-Oshkosh for a 63-57 win on Friday in Delaware, Ohio. Buchanan scored a game-high 18 points to lead four Hope starters in double figures.

Kalamazoo (0-11, 0-3)

Saint Mary's (5-8, 2-2)

A tough-shooting start for the Belles proved to be too much to overcome as the Saint Mary's basketball team lost a 70-49 contest at Webster in their lone game of the week. Giavanna Paradiso led all players with 21 points and had a team-high six rebounds. Megan Saunders and Caroline Macius each added seven points, and Erin Maloney chipped in five points.
