Myles Miller, GVSU men's basketball split weekend series on Ohio road trip

Riding the highs of a five-game winning streak, the Grand Valley State men’s basketball team headed to the state of Ohio to face off against GLIAC foes Ashland University and Tiffin University.  The Lakers’ winning streak would end after a closely contested 89-80 loss to the GLIAC heavyweight Ashland Eagles on Thursday, Jan. 11, but a new streak began after GVSU took down Tiffin 80-71 on Saturday, Jan. 13.

GVSU women’s basketball splits weekend set

The Ashland University women’s basketball team is pretty good. Coming into their Thursday, Jan. 11, matchup with a vengeful Grand Valley State squad, they were riding a Division II record 52-game win streak that the Lakers were keen on snapping. Besides, three of those wins came against the Lakers during the 2016-17 season: one in the regular season, one in the GLIAC tournament and one in the NCAA tournament.

GVSU women's basketball hitting stride midseason

Nobody knew what to expect from the Grand Valley State women’s basketball team coming into this season. A program that finished second in the GLIAC and won a game in the NCAA tournament saw sizable roster turnover and a plethora of new faces that would be required to contribute to the team. So far, things have gone about as well as most could have hoped, as the Lakers are 13-2 overall (6-1 GLIAC) and currently riding a six-game winning streak.

The Grand Valley State women’s basketball team has been rolling so far this year, winning their past six contests to establish a comfortable 13-2 overall record (6-1 GLIAC). But the road hasn’t been easy, as this year’s team has been recently plagued with the injury bug to key players. Luckily for the Lakers, they have sophomore Cassidy Boensch, the team’s tallest player at 6 feet 4 inches, to come off the bench and be productive in the paint.
