Lady Bears Ready To Host Northwestern

SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Missouri State Lady Bears are gearing up for a test against big 10 team Northwestern Saturday at JQH Arena. 

Missouri State has figured things out here lately, winning two straight games, averaging 85 points in those two victories. 
    
And as for Lady Bears star senior Liza Fruendt, the contest hits close to home, as she's from the Chicago-land area and her older brother played at Northwestern. 

"Having them come here is awesome. My whole family is going to come. My brother is a huge Northwestern fan, as given, but I think he will be pulling for the Lady Bears. It's always a fun game. I think it is a great opportunity for us to go against a Big 10 opponent," said Liza Fruendt. 

"Obviously, they are going to be good, they are going to be talented. They are going to be big, strong, and physical. That is the style you typically see from Big 10 schools and Northwestern. But I think our players really have to approach it as an opportunity that you don't get that often," said Kellie Harper.
