Men’s basketball takes first loss of season to Indianapolis, 88-80

The Grand Valley State men’s basketball picked up their first loss of the season this Sunday, as they fell to Indianapolis at GVSU’s Fieldhouse Arena 88-80.

Despite getting out to a hot start early on and leading 50-37 going into halftime, GVSU couldn’t keep the Greyhounds off the scoreboard, as they shot 58 percent from the field in the second half to eventually win the game.

Hunter Hale led the team in scoring with 17 points, including 15 in the first half. Two other Lakers finished with double-digit points, as Jeremiah Ferguson poured in 16 and Justin Greason put up 15.

With the loss, the Lakers fall to 3-1, and will look to get back to their winning ways on Wednesday, Nov. 21, as the team hosts Grace Christian at 7:00 p.m.

Women’s basketball beats Indianapolis

The Grand Valley State women’s basketball team picked up a win on Sunday, Nov. 18 as they defeated the Indianapolis Greyhounds on the road 80-71.

Cassidy Boensch was able to dominate inside for the Lakers, putting up a double-double with 25 points to go along with 11 rebounds. She made 50 percent of her shots (9-18) and also had three blocks.

Boensch wasn’t the only Laker to light up the scoreboard, as Jenn DeBoer, Victoria Hedemark and Maddie Dailey poured in 22, 14 and 13 points respectively.

With the win, the Lakers improve to 3-1 on the year and look to gain another win as they host Concordia Ann-Arbor on Saturday, Nov. 24. That game is set to tipoff at 3 p.m.
