Lady Majors Push Winning Streak to 13 Games

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS. (WLBT) - Two years ago the Millsaps women's basketball team only won one game.

The team finished the season 1-24.

This year, the Lady Majors are 16-2 and on a 13 game winning streak.

The Lady Majors picked up their 13th straight win on Sunday with a 71-46 contest over the Hendrix Warriors.

Junior forward Shante Morton led Millsaps with a double-double.

Morton scored 20 points (11 in the second half) and chipped in with 13 rebounds.

Head Coach Chuck Winkelman says the team isn't even focused on the 13 game winning streak.

"We're trying to stay in the process. We don't really talk about a streak. They might hear that on campus or from articles that are writing. We're just trying to take one game at a time. That's really the streak we are after, that one particular game we are playing. Stay in the moment," said Winkelman.

"We all had the confidence but we had to come together with team chemistry and team defense to accomplish it. We will be SCAC champions. Yes, we will be SCAC champions," said Morton.

With the win the Lady Majors move to 8-1 in SCAC play.
