SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel women's basketball team heads to 6th-ranked MidAmerica Nazarene Wednesday night to take on the Heart South Division leaders.

 OPENING STORYLINES

► Evangel heads back on the road to start a two-game road swing Wednesday at MidAmerica Nazarene. The Pioneers enter the week ranked in the NAIA Top 25 with just one loss. Last year the Crusaders swept the season series winning both games.

Sydnee Garrett (Stockton, Mo./North Ark CC) recorded her 10th double-double of the season with 26 points and 12 rebounds against Central Methodist. Garrett leads the conference in rebounding at 10.1 rpg and ranks 8th nationally in scoring and 10th in rebounding.

Randi Hancock (Bolivar, Mo.) continues to lead the nation in free throw percentage as well shooting 93 percent from the line. She started the season making her first 30 consecutive attempts.

► Evangel plays at home three times during the month of January. After last Saturday's game against Central Methodist, the Crusaders host Benedictine on Jan. 17 and MidAmerica Nazarene on the final day of the month, Jan. 31.

LOOKING AHEAD
Evangel heads to Iowa for the first time since conference play started for a matchup against Grand View. Tipoff from Des Moines, Iowa, is scheduled for 2 p.m.
