Tigers Set to Open Season
Doane will face a touch test in the season opener as they travel to Omaha and face College of St. Mary.
The Tigers topped the Flames by 20 points a year ago in Crete but CSM will have a new look this year. Kevin Lein takes over the Flames and returns to basketball after taking a few years off after resigning his coaching position at Dakota Wesleyan. While at DWU, Lein helped the Tigers reach the NAIA Final Four.
CSM will be led by returning starters Jenna Kreikemeier and Katie Jo Lawton. Lawton is the team's top returning scorer after averaging 10.5 points per game last year, second to Chelsea Malone. Sharp-shooter Jenny Bridge re-joins Coach Lein after transferring from Dakota Wesleyan. Bridge was recruited to DWU by Lein as a freshman.
Tip-off at the Lied Fitness Center on the CSM campus is set for 7:00 pm. The game can be heard on 91.9 FM or at webcast.doane.edu.
