Player of the Week – Guard Lauren Pellowski

Posted by Falcons Fan on November 24, 2009

Nov. 23, 2009

Guard Lauren Pellowski (Jr., St. Paul, Minn. Tartan HS) helped the Falcons to a perfect start to their 2009-10 season with three wins last week. Pellowski, 5-6, led the team in scoring in an 82-53 win over Martin Luther and a 78-61 win over Viterbo. She scored a career-high 16 points at Martin Luther and 15 at Viterbo. She shot 16-25 (.640) from the field, including 6-9 (.667) from three-point range. She was a perfect 4-4 from the line for 42 points. She also had seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 51 minutes of playing time. She leads the Falcons in scoring averaging 14 points a game

“Lauren played really well this week,” said Coach Holbrook. “She is a very good shooter as we saw this week in all 3 games. We need her to continue to have that scorers mentality.  She came in and gave us a great impact each game. When players come into the game they need to contribute, not only on the offensive end, but also the defensive end and rebounding. She did a nice job in all three areas. “

Falcons Lose WIAC Playoff Game at Eau Claire

Posted by Falcons Fan on February 25, 2009

The Falcon women’s basketball team fell short against UW-Eau Claire, 62-47, at Zorn Arena Tuesday night in a WIAC playoff game.

EC jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead before the Falcons answered. The Falcons followed with a 10-2 run of their own to give RF a two point advantage with 14:29 remaining in the first half. EC quickly regained the lead, however, and maintained a six point advantage at halftime, 25-19.

The Blugolds would keep the lead throughout the second half. The Falcons cut the EC advantage to six points with 5:00 remaining when Jenna Hanson dropped in a hoop after getting an offensive rebound. But the Falcons could not get any closer.

Kelli Hilt led the Falcons with 14 points and six rebounds. Maranda Dohrn put together a double-double with 11 points and a game-high 12 rebounds. Taylor House chipped in 10 points.

Heather Witt poured in 19 points to lead EC in the winning effort.

RF shot 16-50 from the field (.320) including only 2-18 (.111) from beyond the arc. EC shot 22-58 from the field (.379) and an impressive 7-15 (.467) from behind the three-point line. The Falcons were 13-16 (.813) from the free throw line. The Blugolds only turned the ball over 12 times while the Falcons committed 22 turnovers.

The Falcons finish the season 14-12.

Falcons Finish Regular Season with Loss to UWW

Posted by Falcons Fan on February 22, 2009

The Falcons hosted the Warhawks of UW-Whitewater Saturday afternoon at the Karges Center. The game was the last conference, regular-season game for UWRF. Unable to fend off the 7th ranked UWW, the Falcons fell to the Warhawks, 68-56.

After Alise Holst left the game with an injury just one minute into play, the Falcons struggled to gain control from the Warhawks the rest of the game.

Taylor House lead the Falcons with 15 points and six rebounds. She shot 7-15 from the field and 1-1 from the free throw line. She also ended the evening with four blocks.

Tiffany Gregorich and Maranda Dohrn finished with nine and seven points respectively. Gregorich shot 3-11 from the field, 1-5 from the three-point line and 2-2 from the charity stripe. Dohrn went 3-7 from the field and 1-1 from beyond the arc. Gregorich had three rebounds, and Dohrn finished with seven.

Other scorers for the Falcons included: Jenna Hanson and Tess Lardie with six, Kelli Hilt and Katie Theisen with four, and Tessa Rohl and Lauren Pellowski with three and two respectively.

For Whitewater, Tiffany Morton had a huge double-double with 20 points and 19 rebounds that proved too much for UWRF to handle. Kelsey Hendrickson added 14 points, shooting 4-8 from the three-point line. Heidi Sontag shot 3-7 from the field and 3-5 from three-point land for nine points, as well.

As a team, the Falcons shot 25-61 (41.0 percent) from the field, 2-12 (16.7 percent) from the three-point line and 4-5 (80.0 percent) from the free throw line. UWRF had 14 turnovers to the UWW’s 16 and 11 steals to the Warhawk’s three.

The Falcons finish 7-9 in the WIAC and 14-11 overall. UWW ends up 13-3 in conference play and 22-3 overall.

UWRF will play at either UW-Stout or UW-Eau Claire on Tuesday for the first round of playoffs. The location depends on the outcomes of today’s remaining games.
