Streaks lost their season opener to Illini West 64-61 at Thiel Gym. Streaks led most of the game including a 58-51 lead with under 3:00 minutes to go.

Streaks were in a fouling mood. Despite being up, we fouled late in the game which allowed IW to score 7 of last 9 points from the foul line. Streaks committed 21 fouls which resulted in 24 ft attempts for IW.

Ball handling was a major problem for the Streaks as we turned the ball over 26 times.

On the bright side, Sabrina Clay and Shayli Florine were dominant inside. Both were in double figures with points, and Sabrina pulled down 18 rebounds. Clay's 16 defensive boards set a GHS single game record, breaking a record of 15 set by Sadee Hamilton.

Haley Kelso led the Streaks with 21 points on 50% shooting.

Next up for the Streaks will be Metamora on Thursday at 7:00pm in Thiel Gym.
