The Central women’s basketball team is on another three game winning streak, and in at least two of those victories, it has been their hot shooting that has been the determining factor. Central women’s head coach, Mike Jacobsma, has a philosophy when it comes to shooting percentage and what he wants to see out of his team over the course of a game.
“Our shooting percentages, we’ve been challenging our kids to pick up their shooting percentage by five percent,” Jacobsma said. “Our goal is to get to 80. If we can have a whole team shoot 80 percent, you should win those basketball games.”
The Dutch women have won their last three games over AIB, Bethany Lutheran and Augustana and currently sit with a 6 – 3 record. Their next game will be at home on December 28 against St. Scholastica, Minnesota.
