the team in assists with 78 and steals with 44 and is second-best on the team with 11.0 ppg.

Megan Daniel, a consistent player for the Ladies, is continuing to play various roles. Not only does Daniel serve as vital member of the court, playing 13 full 40-minute games so far this season, but she also is looked to for threepoint plays, taking over as point guard at times, and most recently, being relied on for new defensive strategies. Head coach Kristen Davis commented on how necessary Daniel is for the success of the Ladies' defense, using her
as her main tool for shutting down opponents.

First time head coach Kristen Davis and her team of Ladies are still searching for the first win of the season for Centenary. The squad came the closest the closest on Feb. 7 against Summit League opponent North Dakota State
and its Player of the Month, Abby Plucker, falling by just nine. The lead changed four times throughout the game
and was tied up three times. Centenary would take its largest lead of three points in the first half with 12:17 to play, however could not hold on. The Ladies will continue to fight for a victory in Centenary's last five games as a Division I team.

Although seniors Anne Farrell and Ashley Jackson each hold spots as Summit League statistic leaders for rebounding,
Centenary has not managed to out-rebound an opponent yet this season. Centenary has in fact been outrebounded
every game except for one. The Ladies are averaging a 12.8 deficit to their opponents. Just Monday,
the Ladies tied the Bison of North Dakota State in rebounding at 32, proving they can do it too.
