Wednesday, January 10, 2018

MATTOON--The Lake Land College Lady Lakers basketball team currently sports three players ranking Top 10 in the nation within NJCAA Women's Basketball Division II.

As for Crowder, a sophomore, who has been binging on three-pointers recently, she has reached a national ranking of 10th for three-pointers made with a season total of 42.

Along with her high ranking for treys, Crowder holds several other Top-100 national rankings:

Jaycie Roy
Freshman Roy goes Top-5 nationally for her defensive rebounding, tallying 116 so far this season to rank her 4th in the country.
