SPRINGFIELD– In college athletics, the toughest part of a team’s schedule is generally their conference slate.

But when it comes to the Lady Panthers, there’s no one who can stop them right now.
That’s because Amy Eagan’s crew is a perfect 15-0 in Great Lakes Valley play, averaging 86 points a game, while holding opponents to just 61.
