Lindner, Roenneburg Helping Rebuild Panther Program

The Milwaukee women's basketball team has had loads of success this season, and they certainly wouldn't have gotten where they are with out two underclassmen from Northwestern Wisconsin.

Sophomore Jenny Lindner and freshman Emma Roenneburg have both played big roles for Milwaukee over the season and ready for the start of the Horizon League Tournament with the semifinal on Saturday.

With Lindner and Roenneburg hailing from the same part of the state, their local paper recently caught up with the hometown heros heading into Saturday's big game up in Green Bay.

"But another program is quietly ascending as two local players, Neillsville native Jenny Lindner and Adams-Friendship graduate Emma Roenneburg, have helped the Panthers to their best season in a decade," writes Mitch Skurzewski of the Marshfield News Herald.

Skurzewski talked to the two young Panthers and head coach Kyle Rechlicz about a variety of topics, including playing AAU ball together, recruiting and what it's been like moving to a big campus in a bigger city.

Vote For Jenny!

Last week was a big one for Panther basketball player Jenny Lindner. The Neillsville native was named Horizon League Player of the Week after a career week on the court. Now, Lindner has the chance to earn even more hardware, but she needs your help.

HeroSports.com has their weekly list of the top performances in college from the previous week and Lindner is on the list.

Fans can vote for Lindner as one of the 10 candidates for the weekly award.

Lindner was huge for Milwaukee last week, netting a career-high 32 points - including 16 in the final quarter - to help spark UWM past Oakland in a 98-95 thriller. She was also big on the defensive end, grabbing six rebounds and nabbing three steals. All of that was part of Milwaukee's clinching win that locked up the No. 2 seed in this weekend's Horizon League Tournament in Green Bay.

Then, with the seedings already locked in, Lindner had yet another impressive showing in a narrow loss at Detroit. The sophomore had a team-high 20 points to go with seven rebounds and another three steals in just 29 minutes.

Fans can vote until next Monday at HeroSports.com.

Knock Knock...

It was quite the night for the Milwaukee women's basketball team.

The Panthers took down Oakland, 98-95, to clinch the No. 2 seed in next week's Horizon League Tournament.

Not only that, but as Jeff Miller writes in his latest article on Wisconsin's hottest team, the Panthers are in prime position for their first postseason berth since 2005-06 team made it all the way to the NCAA Tournament.

Miller writes, "Like I’ve said before, and will continue to say these ladies are firing on ALL CYLINDERS right now. Take for example the game that both Steph Kostowicz, and Jenny Lindner had Thursday night. Both went off for 32 points, Lindner’s a career high, and Kotowicz set a record going 13 of 14 shooting 92.9% from the field. It was the first time since UWM Women have been in Division I that two players collected 30+ points in the same game.

One Down...Two To Go

"One down...two to go."

That was the title of Jeff Miller's latest article about the Milwaukee women's basketball team after the Panthers collected yet another huge win on Saturday, taking down Wright State, 68-57, in a battle for second place in the Horizon League.

UWM now holds sole possession of second place with just two games left in the regular season.

As Miller notes, if Milwaukee can secure the No. 2 seed, they get not only a double bye in the Horizon League Tournament, but also an automatic bid into the WNIT.

Add's Miller, "Right now, Rechlicz’s team is hitting on all cylinders, and seem to be peaking at the right time. The win Saturday extended their overall record to 17-10, and  11-5 in the Conference, and “rocking” a 4 game winning streak."

Panthers Primed For Saturday's Big Game

After last night's 78-71 win over Northern Kentucky, the Milwaukee women's basketball team continued their push toward the Horizon League Tournament.

UWM increased its chances for earning the No. 2 seed in the tournament with that win, something not lost on producer/host and sports correspondent for The Big 920 - WOKY/Newstalk 1130 - WISN in Milwaukee.

Write's Miller, "This Saturday afternoon at the Klotsche Center on the UWM campus the Women’s basketball team will be playing in their program’s biggest game in a decade."

The game Miller is referring to is the matchup between Milwaukee and Wright State - the two teams currently tied for second place in the league standings with 10-5 conference records.

Women's Basketball Garnering More Media Attention

Jeff Miller
The Milwaukee women's basketball team has drawn quite a bit of interest this season, and for good reason.

The latest comes from the pen of Jeff Miller - producer, host and sports correspondent at The Big 920 - WOKY/Newstalk 1130 - WISN in Milwaukee.

Miller - who produces some of the Panther radio broadcasts - notes there are a variety of reasons this could prove to be quite the special season for the Panthers.

He writes: "Head Coach Kyle Rechlicz now fully ensconced in her fourth year, is on the verge of taking the Women’s program to a place they haven’t been  in a decade…to a post season tournament (other than the Horizon League)."
