Halftime: Women's basketball dominating Grand Valley State, leads 43-16






After a week of injuries and lineup uncertainty the MSU women’s basketball team is looking to find cohesion in its exhibition finale Sunday afternoon.

It was all MSU in the first half, with the Spartans dominating Grand Valley State from start to finish, leading 43-16 at halftime.

The Spartans were explosive early, jumping out to a 13-0 lead while making six of their first seven shots, with Annalise Pickrel scoring seven points during the run.

The junior forward led all scorers with 10 points and four rebounds, as MSU shot 61.5 percent through the first half, while limiting the Lakers to 21.4 percent shooting.

A 3-pointer by junior guard Breanna Kellogg cut MSU’s lead to 12, 23-11 with 11:05 remaining in the half, but the Spartans responded with a 20-1 run to put the game out of reach.

Junior guard Klarissa Bell poured in eight points along with three rebounds and three assists for MSU, and sophomore center Jasmine Hines added six points and four rebounds off the bench.
