(Ann Arbor, MI) A tough shooting second half hindered Concordia women's basketball who suffered a 52-65 loss to Lawrence Technological University on Wednesday. The Cardinals only trailed by one at the break, but made less than 20% from the field in the final 20 minutes allowing the visitors to build up a lead.
Kari Borowiak (JR/Gaylord, MI) made all four of Concordia's three-pointers swishing her first from the corner to give her team an early advantage. The junior knocked down another three minutes later to go up by five to help the Cardinals hold a 16-15 at the end of the first quarter.
Mia Long (FR/Ann Arbor, MI) scored 9 points in the first half before finishing with 13 to go with six rebounds, four assists, and four steals. The freshman got a tough shot to fall at the end of the shot clock and Chase Bauer (FR/Cincinnati, OH) came through with a steal and layup at 6:17 for CUAA's final 5-point lead.
The teams went back-and-forth in the final minutes of the second quarter. A three-point play from Long in the final put the Cardinals back on top briefly, but the Blue Devils responded with a quick basket to set up a 29-30 halftime score.
Similar to the first meeting in Southfield, Lawrence Tech controlled the third quarter and outscore Concordia, 17-8 in the frame. CUAA came back and fought hard to gain momentum in the fourth, but the steady Blue Devils made it tough for the them to put up quality shots.
Borowiak finished with a game-high 18 points on a 4-9 night from behind the arc. She and the Cardinals will be in Livonia, MI on Saturday to play Madonna University in the last game of the regular season. The contest with the Crusaders is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m.
