The Loras College women can wrap up the second seed in the upcoming Iowa Conference tournament when they host Buena Vista on Saturday in their regular season finale. The Norse are 11-4 in the league race and own the tie breaker against Simpson, which is also 11-4.
Loras coach Shauna Green says they dropped some games early they felt they should have won, and now it comes down to this, but she says this is why they play. This is the last game they’ll play in their fieldhouse as they move to a new facility next year, so that adds to the event.
The Norse are the only team that has beaten regular season champ Luther and Green says that will give her team confidence heading into the post-season. Green says they know no matter what happens they have beaten Luther already and that gives them confidence heading into the tournament.
Green says the key for her team all season has been defense. She says they always know they have to defend to be able to win games.
