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.

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.
