Benedictine's women's basketball team will take a five-game win streak into next week's Northern Athletics Conference post-season tournament thanks to its 63-49 win over Marian College in the regular season finale. The Eagles are now 13-12 overall and finished 10-8 in NAC games. Benedictine will be the tournament's No. 8 seed and travel to face No. 1 seed Concordia University (Wis.) on Wednesday in Mequon, Wis. Game time is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Sophomore forward Monica Krozel - the heir apparent to the Eagles' inside game currently buoyed by All-American center Tamika Curtis - had a double-double of 18 points and 15 rebounds, both game high totals. Krozel also had two blocked shots. Curtis was held to 11 points and eight boards, facing double and triple teams most of the game. Senior guards Megan Walczak and Tiffany Hardy added 13 and 10 points, respectively. Hardy also had a game-leading seven assists.
