Friends women on hot streak

WHITNEY BATES

The Friends University women have been reeling off victories as of late – nine straight including last night’s 76-57 win over Kansas Wesleyan. The link is to a story from Eagle correspondent Austin Colbert.

The hot streak has put the Falcons back in the hunt for winning their second straight KCAC regular-season title – they are now one game back of No. 25 Tabor in the standings with five regular-season games left, including a Feb. 14 tilt at Tabor.

Abril Marshall leads the Falcons in scoring with 12.9 points per game – fourth in the KCAC. Rose Hill product Whitney Bates is third in the KCAC in steals (2.21) and assists (3.54). Friends plays at Sterling on Saturday night.
