Members of the women’s basketball team watch as their teammates take part in a basketball challenge during Lions’ Late Night.

Last Monday night, on the home and season opener for the Lindenwood women’s basketball team, the Lions took on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.

The Lions lost 89-80, but still had big moments and learned many new things altogether that game.

“I’m disappointed that we lost, obviously,” head coach Amy Eagan said. “We’re going to watch film, and take what we struggled with and what we didn’t do well, and just apply it to our practice and try to get better.”

This is Eagan’s first season coaching the Lions, after previously coaching Division 2 for the Drury Panthers. The Lions as a whole have multiple new members, including transfer athletes, and nine freshmen. With so many young players, and everyone as a whole, in general, currently learning one another, that has been a difficulty starting the season off. However, from practices and the first game of the season, the team has started to learn culture and chemistry.

“I think for a young team we performed very well, I think we expected more, I think overall we did really good just not getting down, and continued to fight,” junior Loyola transfer guard Kaylen Evans said. “I think going forward I think we’re very very excited and I think we know we can achieve a lot this year.”

While the Lions are a very young college basketball team, this season, they plan to use that to there advantage in allowing the players to learn all through the season, and the team as a whole to evolve, and gain tremendous culture among one another.

“Going forward I think we’re very excited and I believe we know we can achieve a lot this year,” Evans said. “Continue to fight, continue to push the ball, continue to get better, and continue to tell as a team.”
