MSU improved to 1-1 on the season with an impressive 76-50 win over the Kentucky Wildcats. Senior Paula Sanders led the way with 13 points, eight rebounds and three assists on the night. (Also see our interview with Paula Sanders) Whitney Winberg had 10 points and Kristen Rasmussen had 10 points, four rebounds, and two blocks.

"It was a very good game for us," said coach Karen Langeland. "I was please with our performance. We had good balence in scoring and the people who came off the bench maintained our running game.

"There was definately an improvement in the performance of our freshmen. We're not a team who has one great All-American. We need to play together to be successful."

Next up for the team is two home games. On Saturday they take on Central Michigan at 2 p.m. and on Wednesday they face Bowling Green at 7:30 p.m.
