FOND DU LAC T&C thunder 24

Anoka-Ramsey spoiled the debut of Fond du Lac 92-24. Kate Bement scored two 3s on the opening two AR possessions and it was all down hill from there for FdL. In fact Bement outscored FdL on her own with 28 points. The Rams used pressure defense against the iron five Thunder. 26 points came off transition points. FdL had 43 turnovers in their first outing.

There are inevitable growing pains as a first time program playing their first game. FdL had seven players dressed, yet only five played. Ashley Langila hit her head on the floor and was checked out by first aid, but she remained in the contest. With the "iron five" FdL was forced to play zone. That opened the door for free looks from behind the arc for AR. Bement had four of the 8 AR 3s on the night. FdL was pressured right from the start and the back court had issues against the AR heat. FdL never really got into any half court offense in the first half. Droughts ruled the day for FdL. The Thunder had dry stretches of 11, 8, 10 and another 8. It was AR 54-12 at half time.

The second half there really was no big changes. The suspense was "would AR reach the century mark?" AR needed 10 points with a little over three minutes left. They only scored two more the rest of the way. Most of the second half the Rams worked on moving the ball vs the half court zone. As far as the biggest string---AR scored five straight times in the first half

Here are the firsts for FdL:
1st shot--Alicia Lagarde
1st basket--Ashley Langila.
1st free throw--Ashley Langila
1st rebound--Alicia Lagarde
1st assist--Liza Williamson
1st 3---Alicia Lagarde
