About the Lady Miners
Laura Rodriguez leads Missouri S&T averaging 14 points per game. The senior from Spain was an All-GLVC selection last year and averaged 16 ppg.
Kira Carter is in her second year as Missouri S&T’s head coach. Carter previously served as an assistant coach at Sam Houston State and Milwaukee in the NCAA Division I ranks, and she was an assistant at S&T during the 2016-17 season.
Robinson nears 1,700 career points
Senior Paige Robinson needs just five points to become the fourth player in program history to reach 1,700 career points. She would join Hailey Diestelkamp, Amanda Newton, and Bethanie Funderburk in that exclusive club. Robinson needs 22 points to pass Funderburk for third on the Lady Panthers all-time scoring list.
