Trinity almost extended their winning streak to nine games, falling 76-71 in OT to a Bates team which has been strengthened by the mid-season transfer of a couple of student athletes (including last season's co-NESCAC Rookie-of-the-year, Amherst's Matia Kostakis). A 5-15 performance from the FT line, where Bates enjoyed a 34-15 advantage, didn't help matters.
Krista Matthews and Jennifer Wieman scored 15 off the bench to lead the Tigers. Bates' Meg Coffin nearly recorded a triple-double with 15 boards, 13 points, and 8 steals. Jackie Powers led all scorers with 18 points.
Bates improves to 6-5 on the season, while Trinity falls to 8-2.
