Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced." 1 Chronicles 16:8-12 NIV

Women's Basketball Finds
FIRST Victory, LOOKING
After coming close a number of times, the Trolls closed the deal with their first win of the season last Tuesday. They took the lead from the first basket of the game and continued to build to a 75-60 victory over Ashford University (IA). They continued to fight for a second win on Saturday and the basketball game between the Trolls and the Saints of the University of St. Francis (IL) was a very close game for 36 minutes. However it was the first four minutes of the game that made a difference in the 79-70 loss for the Trolls, who now fall to 1-6 for the season.
Men's Basketball Struggles then gets a win
In their first road game of the season the Trolls faltered in the second half of a game at Saint Xavier University (IL) on November 14. A two point half-time deficit ended to be a 13 point loss, 79-66. On Thursday, they fought hard, but lost in the final minutes of a game against NAIA Div I preseason ranked No. 16 University of Illinois-Springfield. It was not until late in the game that the Trolls gave up the lead for good and allowed UIS to pull away to the 57-69 final. In their third attempt of the week the Trolls got back into the win column with an 83-70 victory at Taylor University-Fort Wayne (IN) on Saturday. It was the second win of the season for the team that is now 2-3.
