By  | 

KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - The UNK women's basketball team (19-2, 8-2 in MIAA) is having quite the season as they sit at second in the MIAA conference. Winners of its last seven games, they are heading to the final stretch of the season and Head Coach Carrie Eighmey is having no trouble keeping them dialed in.

"This part of the season does get tough in the sense you got game after game. Every single one of them is intense," Eighmey said. "It takes a ton of time to prep and a ton of mental and physical capacity to be able to be ready and I think our group is a little bit more experienced then they have been in that area."

The Lopers travel to rival Fort Hays State this Sat. Feb. 1. The Tigers have only lost three times at home in their last five seasons. Tip-off set for 2 p.m.
