As non-conference play continues for the Knights here in this 2010-11 season, Calvin underwent what looked to be its toughest tests thus far as the Knights took on the fifth-ranked Carthage College Lady Reds.  Coming into the game with a 5-2 record, the Knights handed Carthage its first loss of the season [6-1] with a decisive victory at home in the Van Noord Arena, winning by a score of 69-59. As a team, Calvin connected on 13-of-26 from three-point range, establishing a Van Noord Arena record for three-pointers made in a womenís game. The 13 triples are the highest total in a Calvin womenís basketball game since January 21, 2009, when the Knights were 14-of-28 from beyond the arc in an 81-63 win at Olivet.
