WEEK FOUR IN REVIEW
Michigan Tech snapped a three game losing streak with a pair of wins at Saginaw Valley State and Northwood to open the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference schedule. The Huskies topped the Cardinals 68-57 Thursday night after trailing 13-9 through the first 10 minutes. Tech combined to outscore the Cardinals in the second and third periods by 15 points to turn the tide of the contest. Four Tech players had 13 or more points in Thursday night's win, led by sophomore Cassidy Trotter and Ellie Mackay with season and career highs of 15 points apiece. On Saturday afternoon, the Huskies prevailed at Northwood 78-68 to wrap up the weekend. The Huskies constructed a 15-point lead about midway through the third quarter only to find themselves trailing the Timberwolves by four points with 4:31 to play. The Huskies collected themselves and outscored Northwood 19-5 down the stretch to secure the win. Junior Abbie Botz powered the Huskies with a career high 21 points, nine rebounds, and six assists.

Kelliher, a forward from Waukesha, Wisconsin, averaged 14 points and nine rebounds, had three assists, and four blocked shots combined in Tech's two victories this past week.

In addition to her scoring and rebounding numbers, Kelliher turned in a pair of blocked shots in each game to break the Michigan Tech career record for total blocks. Kelliher is also the single game (9) and single season (76) school record holder for blocks. Kelliher is averaging 10.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, and is fourth in the GLIAC with 1.9 blocks per game.

Mackay was 13 of 20 on shots from the field (65%) and went 5 of 9 from behind the arc (55.6%) in the two contests. Mackay has played in all eight games with four starts this year. She is averaging 10.1 points per game and has been successful on 55.6 percent of her total field goals and 54.8 percent of her three-point attempts.

Hoyt brings a wealth of coaching experience to Tech from both the NCAA Division I and II levels. In Hoyt's most recent stop at the University of Sioux Falls, she was involved in all facets of the program. She played an integral role in player development, served as the recruiting coordinator, created scouting reports, ran summer camps, and had responsibilities for film breakdown.
