TRUJILLO ALTO, P.R. – Playing in its first game action since Dec. 15, the Gustavus Adolphus College women’s basketball team earned a 47-29 victory over Ramapo College in a low-scoring affair on Monday morning in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The game served as the first of two competitions for Gustavus during its winter training trip, and with the win, allows it to improve to 8-2 overall. The 29 points allowed by the Black and Gold is also the lowest point total by an opponent since the Gusties defeated Macalester College 51-23 on Feb. 15, 2006.

Despite shooting a season low 30.8 percent from the floor, Gustavus never trailed and jumped out to a 10-point, 13-3 lead after nine minutes of action. The Gusties held the Roadrunners to a 19.8 percent average from the field, including just five points in the first quarter, and never gave up a double digit point total in any of the four quarters throughout the contest. Ramapo’s leading point scorers, Alyson Oostdyk and Shelby Ringer were tied with five apiece.

Justine Lee (Fy., Dawson, Minn.) used a nine-point first half to help herself to a 12-point outing to lead the Gusties in scoring. Lee was 4-of-5 from the floor and 4-of-6 from the charity stripe. Mikayla Miller (So., Goodhue, Minn.) was also active, as she notched her second career double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Fifteen of Gustavus’s 16 players entered the game, with the lone exception being senior Lindsey Johnson (Edina, Minn.) who was forced to miss the game due to illness, and 10 of those 15 scored.

The Black and Gold will be back in action tomorrow when it takes on the Coast Guard Academy at noon CST.
