Blue Angels Weekly Preview 01-09-17

As the winter break nears its end, the Blue Angels have two more games coming this week. Back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday with the first game in the confines of the Bloechl Center.

The Blue Angels will take on the Silver Lake Lakers (8-4) for their first contest of the week. The Lakers just had a three game streak snapped by the highly ranked Indiana University Northwest. The Red Hawks are ranked 15th in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Division II, and narrowly escaped their meeting with the Lakers with a 75-70 victory.

The Lakers will square off against the Blue Angels Friday at the Bloechl Center fresh after MMU's victory over Robert Morris University Springfield (0-10). The Blue Angels saw two big performances from their upperclassmen Jess Runge (Sr./Freedom, Wis.) and Becky Onan (Jr./Grafton, Wis.) Runge finished the night with a perfect 10-of-10 performance from the field, while Onan notched her first double-double of the 2016-17 season.

Then the Blue Angels will travel to Chicago try and level off the all-time series with the Archers of the Moody Bible Instituted (0-6). The two teams traded victories last season in their two game series, but the Archers are still lead the all-time series at 7-2.
