LINCOLN—The Carl Sandburg College women’s basketball team split a pair of games Friday and Saturday in the Lincoln Classic. The Chargers (2-5) lost 59-49 to Lincoln Land on Friday before beating host Lincoln 65-38 on Saturday afternoon to snap a three-game losing streak.
Four Sandburg players scored in double figures in the win over the Lynx. Freshman guard Kaylee Moseley (Rockridge) posted a team-best 13 points while freshman guard Jordyn Chasteen (Canton), freshman forward Terra Eberle (Lewistown) and freshman forward Marysa Remick (ROWVA) each added 10 points. Freshman forward Destini Bollinger (Astoria) grabbed a team-high nine rebounds for the Chargers.
“Effort hasn’t been the problem lately. Confusion has been, and the kids got a chance to show what they are capable of when they have the proper structure,” Sandburg coach Mike Bailey said. “It was a positive end to a long, tough week.”
The Chargers trailed just 26-23 at halftime Friday against Lincoln Land but shot 26 percent for the contest. Sophomore guard Makenzie Frank (Knoxville) had seven points and Chasteen hauled in 10 rebounds for Sandburg. Lincoln Land’s Shelby Smith scored a game-high 17.
“Our defense and rebounding were OK, but our offense put us in a tough spot all night,” Bailey said.
The Chargers host unbeaten and fourth-ranked Southeastern at 6 p.m. Monday at John M. Lewis Gymnasium.
