STORM HOST EAGLES IN FIRST GLIAC HOME GAME: The Lake Erie College women's basketball team plays its first Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference home game against Ashland University.  The Storm, in its first year as a member of the GLIAC, is 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the conference. Lake Erie has won seven straight here at the Osborne Center dating back to last season.  Its only home game this season was the season-opener against Ursuline College as the Storm prevailed, 90-67.      

ROGERS NAMED GLIAC POTW: Junior center Stephanie Rogers was named the GLIAC South Division Player of the Week on Dec. 6, following her two-game performance in the Storm's conference opening weekend.  She averaged 21.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.5 blocks and 2.5 steals in two games (1-1 record) while shooting an impressive 75% from the field.  She is the first Storm player to garner GLIAC weekly honors in women's basketball.

LAST TIME OUT FOR THE STORM: Rogers scored 18 points and Brittany Zele had a season-high 14, but the Storm was outscored 21-4 from the end of the first half to the beginning of the second and fell on the road to Hillsdale last Saturday, 85-69.   

 OPPOSITON POSITION: The Eagles (6-1, 1-1 GLIAC) won their first six games of the season before losing at Wayne State Saturday, 77-75. Ashland is plus-18.6 in scoring margin this season and leads the GLIAC in field goal defense, holding opponents to just 32.8 percent.
