The Hastings College women’s basketball team is up to third in the latest NAIA Poll heading into Saturday’s Great Plains Conference game at home against second ranked Morningside. The Broncos are 11-0 and first year coach Jina Johansen credits the players for making the transition a smooth one.
“They have also motivated themselves to a high level”, said Johansen. “Everything has been on their end. They have been really motivated and really focused and they have picked up the scouting reports really quickly and done a great job with everything.”
Defense has been a key. Opponents are shooting only 39 percent from the field, 29 percent from three point range and turning the ball over more than 20 times per game.
