ST. JOSEPH, Minn. (1/02/15)—Concordia put up season high shooting totals from the field and outside the 3-point arc and ran away from Buena Vista in the final non-conference game of the season.

The Cobbers shot 51.7% (31-for-60) from the field and 46.7% (7-for-15) from 3-point range, outscored the Beavers 20-5 in the first quarter on their way to a 78-52 victory.

The win is the third straight for Concordia who moves to 7-4 overall. Buena Vista loses for the second consecutive game and falls to 5-5 on the season.

The Cobbers set the tone for the game by knocking down five of their first six shots in the opening quarter. CC raced to a 14-2 lead and then extended the lead to 15 points at the first break.

Concordia then scored the first seven points of the second quarter to lengthen the lead to 22 points at 27-5. After a 5-0 from the Beavers, CC scored 14 of the next 15 points and the Beavers would never get closer than 24 points for the remainder of the game.

Concordia's 31 made field goals tied a season high while the seven successful 3-pointers were tops for the first 11 games. The Cobbers had a decisive 53-40 edge in rebounds. The 53 boards are a season high and the most since the 2012-13 season.

FAB FIVE
All five of Concordia's starters scored in double figures. Jenna Januschka led all scorers with 17 points. Greta Walsh, Hannah Jeske and Katie Rosenfeldt all had 13 points and Olivia Johnson added 10 points. The five starters scored 66 of the team's 78 points (84.6%).

SO CLOSE TO A TRIPLE-DOUBLE
Senior Hannah Jeske was two assists shy of the rare triple-double. Jeske had 13 points, tied a career high with 10 rebounds and recorded eight assists. It was her first career double-double.

SCORING MACHINE
Jenna Januschka led the Cobbers in scoring for the fourth time in the last five games. She also posted her second straight 17-point game and seventh 15-point plus scoring performance. Prior to this season Januschka's career-high scoring total was 10 points. She leads the Cobbers in scoring with a 15.5 points per game average. That total is fourth best in the MIAC.

QUIETLY EFFECTIVE
While the other four starters were putting up mid-teen point totals, senior Olivia Johnson was quietly recording another solid performance. Johnson put up her second straight 10-point, 8-rebound performance. She has now grabbed at least eight rebounds in five straight games. Johnson now has 478 career rebounds and needs 22 to reach the 500-rebound milestone.

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION
Senior Katie Rosenfeldt kicked off 2016 in style. She was 5-for-8 from the floor and scored a career-high 13 points. Rosenfeldt had scored a total of 10 points in the final games of 2015.    

WHAT'S NEXT
Concordia will now start MIAC play in earnest. The Cobbers will host Carleton on Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. and then head to St. Benedict on Saturday for a 3 p.m. tipoff.
