Madison is led in scoring by Audrey Nelson with 12 points per game and leads in rebounds at 6.5 rebounds per game.. Followed in scoring by Ella Peterreins with five points per game.
The rotations have been on the good side of different as of late. They have even added another player to their varsity roster in sophomore guard Grace Fiege, who saw some action in their last game.
