Luther returned to action following the Christmas break and defeated Lake Forest College 71-53 this afternoon at Just A Game Fieldhouse, Wisconsin Dells, Wis. The win was the third in a row for the Norse who are now 8-5 overall.
The Luther defense shutdown the Lake Forest offensive attack holding the Foresters to 26 percent from the field. The Norse jumped out to a 23-12 lead at the end of the first quarter and never looked back.
Claire Marburger and Laura Hamilton led the Norse in scoring and rebounding. Marbruger scored a game high 19, while Hamilton added 10. Both collected a team high nine rebounds. Hamilton also led the team with four assists and three steals.
Luther returns to action tomorrow morning when it will play UW-La Crosse at 11:00 a.m. These two teams played earlier this year in La Crosse and the Eagles defeated the Norse 62-61.
