The Concordia women's basketball struggled in the non-conference schedule in 2012-13, but battled in the GSAC, finishing fifth, and winning their first GSAC Tournament game since 2010-11.

The Eagles played a challenging non-conference schedule in 2012, going 1-10 and beating Bethesda 101-39 on December 4, inside CU Arena.  The ladies rebounded from that stretch nicely and started 2013 on fire.  They won three consecutive games, beating William Jessup on January 4, Arizona Christian on January 8, and Hope International on January 12th to start 2-0 in the GSAC in the New Year.

The Eagles swept the season series against Biola and Arizona Christian, and took one-of-two from Hope International.  They only lost to #8 The Master's by 10, 68-78, on the road on January 15.

Junior Ashley Engeln put together a nice stretch in early January as she scored 10+ points in eight of nine games, scoring a career-high 30 points against Arizona Christian on January 8.  Engeln also snagged 17 boards in that game and recorded three-straight double-doubles in the wins over William Jessup, Arizona Christian, and Hope International.  Senior Camesha Patton came back from injury to finish her career strong at CU.  She averaged 9.1 points per game this year, doubling her previous high.  She played in 27 games, matching her sophomore mark, after only playing in five last season.  Patton had career-highs in field goal percentage (52.2), rebounds per game (7), blocks per game (.9), and points per game.  After taking a medical redshirt the year before, freshman Katie Ogdon came back to average 11 points per game and 5.8 rebounds per game.  She finished the year with 21 points against Arizona Christian and 20 against San Diego Christian in the GSAC Tournament.  She grabbed 15 boards against ACU in her second double-double of the season.

Senior Melody Chavez finished her career with 126 career threes, eighth on the all-time list, and made 83 this year, third on the season list.

The Eagles will look to improve in 2013-14 with a roster that included eight underclassman this season, including three starters.
