Women’s College Basketball: Freshman Dvorak to step in for Rotunda

Local Sports

In women’s college basketball, the University of Mary is off to a 3-1 start and is 1-0 in the Northern Sun. This despite losing starter Lauren Rotunda.

She suffered a season-ending injury in the first game of the season. Head Coach Rick Neumann said the defensive presence Rotunda presented cannot be replace.

He thinks freshman Tonya Dvorak will fill in nicely, but he will use other players as well.

Dvorak said Rotunda is still teaching her things about the game despite not being able to play.

“She’s like such a good teacher,” Dvorak said. “She’ll show me things. The older girls are all really good at helping out. It’s tough to fill her shoes because she’s such a good player, but I’m going to do my best and she’s going to teach my along the way. It’ll be good in the long run.”

Tomorrow U-Mary continues conference play at home against St. Cloud State.
