The UW-Rock County women’s basketball team opened the season with a pair of wins, while the men’s squad split their first two games Friday and Saturday.

The Rattler women defeated visiting UW-Marinette, 82-62, Friday and went to Waukesha for a 68-63 victory Saturday.

The men’s squad defeated Marinette, 95-72, but lost at Waukesha, 76-71.

“The women did a nice job,” Coach Scott Lee said. “Waukesha has been the measuring stick for the women in the (Wisconsin Collegiate Conference),” Scott said. “In our seven years, this is the first time the women have defeated Waukesha.”

Both the men and women will be in action at home Wednesday against UW-Fond du Lac. The women’s game is at 5:30 p.m., with the men’s game at 7.
