Women’s basketball continued their valiant push towards the playoffs with the help of Adrienne Anderson’s strong performances over the week.
Junior guard Adrienne Anderson has been a consistent force for the Bulldogs this season as they take control of their own destiny in the conference. Quietly, she has been creating many opportunities for the offensive and defensive attack to thrive this season.
Her contributions did not go unnoticed Thursday as Anderson tied her season high in point’s against Michigan Tech with 24 points while also snagging seven rebounds and dishing three assists. This output led the team on scoring and marked second in rebounds as the Bulldogs won 79-70 in a high scoring affair.
The production continued Saturday as the Ferris had an easier time against the Northern Michigan Wildcats. While not putting up quite as many points, Anderson contributed most on the defensive end, tallying two steals and the team’s only block. This accompanied 10 points, four rebounds, and three assists as the Bulldogs handled the Wildcats 68-56.
The guard from Ypsilanti has been a major factor in the Bulldogs plans this season as the number two option, averaging 15 points per game off a 42% shooting percentage. On top of that she has consistently caused mayhem on the defensive end, leading the team with 2.9 steals per game.
This has helped the Bulldogs jump out to a twogame lead in the GLIAC North Division standings and third overall in the conference with three games left in the regular season.
Anderson will look to continue her consistent contributions next Thursday, Feb. 20 at Purdue Northwest in a GLIAC North Division conference clash before traveling to Wisconsin-Parkside in a division decider Saturday, Feb. 22.
