More three-point shooting struggles cost IWU in loss to Huntington

The IWU Wildcats have one of the best three-point shooting teams in the NAIA this season, ranking fourth in the nation in three-point shooting percentage.

But since knocking down a program best 17 triples back on December 22, the Wildcats have struggled in 2019, shooting just 27 percent from beyond the arc.

Those shooting woes continued on Saturday afternoon, as the Wildcats shot just three-of-21 in a 67-59 loss to the Huntington Foresters.

While IWU struggled shooting the basketball, Huntington’s Sarah Fryman and Erin Mohr did not, combing for 40 of the Foresters’ 67 points. Fryman finished with 22, while Mohr collected 18.

Dayton Groninger was a bright spot for the Wildcats. Starting in the first game of her collegiate career, she played well from start to finish, leading IWU with 19 points on eight-of-14 shooting to go along with three rebounds and one assist. Nicole Ignasiak added 13 points and five rebounds in the Wildcats’ loss.
