• First team All-American senior guard Kristen Conahan hit three after three down the stretch to propel the fifth-ranked Concordia women’s basketball team to a 90-82 victory over No. 5 Morningside inside Walz Arena last week. The GPAC took notice and on Tuesday named Conahan the first conference player of the week of the 2013-14 season.

  • This looked more like vintage Concordia Women’s Basketball. The Bulldogs forced 31 turnovers on the night and went 11-for-17 from 3-point range after halftime in a 111-52 blowout at Doane.

  • Kristen Conahan, the 5-foot-5 senior from Omaha, had ice water flowing though her veins, drilling three consecutive 3-pointers in the extended time to bury the visiting third-ranked Mustangs in a battle of top-five teams. She was spotting up from all over, leaving the Mustang defenders scrambling to put a hand in her face.

  • The Bulldog Women's Basketball program made its first trip to Peru since 2007 and came away with an 80-58 victory. Defensive pressure and rebounding led the way.

  • After busting out of the gates with a 15-4 lead, No. 5 Concordia relinquished the advantage before halftime and struggled defensively for the early part of the second half on the way to a 77-74 loss to No. 10 Jamestown (N.D.) on Friday night. Led by hot-shooting point guard Hannah Steele, the Jimmies spoiled day one of the 14th annual Cattle Classic for Drew Olson’s Bulldogs. The loss dropped Concordia to 3-1 on the season.
