Around the MIAA 

Adrian (5-6, 0-3)

Adrian will seek to stop a three-game losing streak and its first win of 2020 on Wednesday when the Bulldogs square off against Albion in MIAA action at home…Adrian fell to Carroll, 71-57, and Carthage, 41-32, at the Music City Classic in Nashville, Tenn., leading into New Year’s Eve…AC then lost at MIAA foe Calvin, 68-50, to open 2020…At 73 points total with Carthage, that was the lowest scoring game for the Bulldogs since Adrian (57) and Albion (15) combined for 72 on Feb. 22, 1973…junior Sha’Trice Graves is tied for the conference lead with 9.3 rebounds per game…Graves also is fourth with 21 blocked shots and has 125 in her career—closing in on the all-time school benchmark of 153.


RV/RV Albion (10-2, 2-1)

Albion was idle last week, however, milestones are in reach when the Britons resume MIAA action with a Wednesday night game at Adrian. Head Coach Doreen Carden could earn her 300th career victory…Senior guard/forward Emily Bernas (Waterford, Mich.) is 25 points from reaching the 1,000-point milestone.

Alma (7-6, 2-2)

Women's basketball rebounded from a few off-balanced shooting performances with a win over Kalamazoo last week. The Scots shot 30 percent in a loss to Hamline University in the second of two games on their trip to Florida, then came back with a 30-point win over the Hornets. The Scots led for nearly the entire game. They shot 56 percent from the field in the first quarter before holding Kalamazoo to one field goal in 13 attempts in the second quarter. Jeny Brandt (Escanaba, Mich.) 24 points and 15 rebounds in 22 minutes. She shot 9-of-14 from the field and made all six of her free throws. Oretha Humphries (Detroit, Mich.) scored 11 points and added six rebounds, two assists and two steals.


Calvin (8-5, 2-2)

Calvin had only one game this past week and got the win against conference opponent Adrian with a score of 68-50. Sophomore Gabby Timmer finished with a double-double with 21 points, 15 rebounds and seven blocks as well. The Knights used a whole team effort to win with 22 assists for the team. Calvin now improves to 8-5 on the season and 2-2 in the MIAA.


No. 3/3 Hope (13-0, 4-0)

A game-ending 7-0 run propelled Hope to a 58-51 victory at Trine, last season's MIAA champion, on Saturday. The Flying Dutch took over sole possession of the MIAA lead with a 4-0 league record. Forwards Ashleigh Thomas (Shelby Township, Mich.) and Olivia Voskuil (Holland, Mich.) topped Hope in scoring with a season-high 14 and 12 points, respectively. Thomas also grabbed a season-high eight rebounds and shared team-high honors with three assists. A three from junior guard Sydney Muller (Grand Rapids, Mich.) with 2:01 remaining started the decisive run. A Thomas jumper and two free throws from sophomore guard Kasey DeSmit (Hudsonville, Mich.) closed the scoring for the Flying Dutch.


Kalamazoo (2-10, 0-3)

Kalamazoo dropped both of its games this past week beginning with a 65-55 loss at Anderson and ending with a 71-41 defeat at Alma. Kaytlyn Tidey led the Hornets offensively as she posted games of 19 and 18 points throughout the week. Isabelle Clark was the other Kalamazoo player to reach double figures in both games as Clark scored 23 total points. Georgie Andrews led the way on the glass, securing 18 total rebounds. Mya Gough continued to be dominant in the low post as Gough blocked 10 more shots during the week and now sits just one away from the school record.
