LANSING, Mich. – The Forester women’s basketball team improved to 3-1 on the year with a 93-27 win over Great Lakes Christian College (0-3) Tuesday night at the Doty Center.

Hailey Krewald exploded for 17 points to not only pace HU but establish a new career best. The 5-8 guard also grabbed a career-high seven rebounds, four of which were of the offensive variety.

Mikala Avina also had a career night with 11 points while Brooke Yoder and Allyson Trout each chipped in ten to round out HU’s double digit scorers.

Taylor Holliday and Brooke Saylor controlled the boards by pulling down ten apiece which included snarling five and four offensive rebounds respectively. As a team, the Foresters tracked down 30 offensive boards on the way to outrebounding their hosts 59-28.

The Lakes played within three-points of Coach Culler’s crew through the first ten minutes before a 30-point performance in the second quarter gave Huntington a comfortable 43-17 advantage by halftime. HU picked up where they left off after the break to continue distancing themselves from Great Lakes to make for the 66-point spread by game’s end.

The Foresters shot 43.0 percent for the game while limiting the Lakes to just 23.4 percent shooting. They also forced 23 GLCC miscues, 18 of which were steals.

Icesi Chandler-Poole poured in a team-best 13 points for the Lakes.
