INSIDE THE LIONS
Hazel Ramirez played in her 100th career game on Thursday, Dec. 28 at BYU. The senior point guard has started all but four of those games and has appeared in all but two games contested during her career. The two missed games were due to an ankle injury last season.
Ramirez has scored in double-figures in nine of LMU's 11 games this season, leading the team in scoring six times. She tallied her first 20-plus point game of the year with a 22-point effort at Long Beach State on Nov. 23. That was just three shy of her career high of 25 set last season at San Diego.
Five different players have led the scoring column in a game, including Ramirez, Emily Ben-Jumbo, Deanna Johnson, Chelsea Barnes and Sophie Taylor. Barnes' team-high 16 points versus Oregon State on Nov. 21 also matched her career high, set at Wyoming on Dec. 29, 2012. Taylor also achieved a career-high with 16 points, all in the second half, against UC Irvine on Nov. 29. Johnson's 23-point effort on Saturday versus UNLV was one shy of her career high set on Feb. 28, 2013 vs. BYU.
Taylor Anderson and Mackenzie Kerins have each achieved double-double status. Anderson's 10-point, 10-rebound effort at Utah State was a career first for the junior. Kerins has two double-doubles on the year, including a 10-point, 11-rebound effort on Dec. 5 at Colorado State, bringing her career double-double total to eight.
With 64 assists through 12 games, Hazel Ramirez brings her career total to 350, good for fourth place in LMU's all-time record book. Next in line is Bryn Britton (1998-02) with 352.
The Lions have debuted seven different starting lineups in just 12 games played this season. The lone constant has been senior point guard Hazel Ramirez who has started all dozen games.
Freshman Olivia Lucero had her best outing of the season on Dec. 19 versus Seattle. The rookie came off the bench for just the fourth time this season to score 11 points on 4-for-6 shooting, including 3-for-3 from three.
