Serena uses big third quarter in win over Newark to claim LTC title

Lady Huskers’ 16-2 frame helps lead to second consecutive regular-season championship, first outright since 2000

“Missing the Little Ten Conference Tournament really hurt. I feel tonight was a little bit of a second chance. Throughout the game I just couldn’t help thinking about not getting to play in the tournament because I feel we had a really good chance to win it.

“Tonight was our tournament championship.”

—  Serena junior guard Katie Baker

“This has been a great group of girls to work with and the three seniors (Emily Schofield, Kailee Borton, and Hatteberg) have given so much to the program. It’s tough to lose the last one here, but we still finished 8-2 with the conference tournament championship.”

—  Newark coach Barb Scott
