Keene loses by 2 to Trinity 51-49. Trinity got a layup as time expired to win.
Boston 70-67 over Fitchburg. Middlebury, Manhattanville & Fitchburg state, not 3 great teams, but not 3 bad teams by any means and Boston has 3 wins. Its still early, but I think the LEC coaches really sold them short picking them 7th.
RIC gets the sweep of Bridgewater, women win 63-54.
Colleen Hanscom, Michaela Cosby, Elisha Homich and Jenna Williamson 4/5's of Bridgewater's starting 5 combined to shoot 7-43 (16.3%). The team shot just 30.6% (19-62). Courtney Burns had 11 to lead RIC
Castleton rolls Plymouth 82-48.
After tying the game at 11 all, Castleton went on a 39-18 run between the first & second halves to blow the game open.
USM 68-54 over Bates.
It looks like McNamera is actually shooting this year. Only scored 8 points, but shot the rock 10 times which seems like more then she had all of last season. Nicole Garland lead them with 16 on 6-15 shooting. Haley Jordan had a double double with 12 and 12.
Dartmouth 69-64 over Worcester state.
Erika Bornemann had a double double with 10 points and 11 boards, Colleen Moriarty poured in 15, but the star for the Corsairs was Kelsey Garrity. Lead the team (and the game high tally) with 18 points, but contributed 6 assists and had 7 steals to also lead in both those departments.
Eastern loses to Emmanuel 65-47.
Shannon McCourt lead the way for Eastern which she will for most of the season: 17 points and 14 rebounds. Fiona O'dwyer lead Emmanuel with 30 points and 16 boards and Jennifer Bujnowski also had a double-double for Emmanuel with 10 points and 12 boards
Western 55-43 win over MSM
Not there because I was at the guys game, so can only look at what the boxscore says but looks like the whole team shot horribly. The team was 18-52, but if you take out Jackie Zilnicki who went 7-11 and finished with 20 points the team shot a dismal 26.8% (11-41). The other 4 in the lineup with Jack (Chelsea Mone, Melissa DiNino, Carly Murphy & Nicole Eanniello) combined for 9 points. Not sure what happened to Carly Murphy. She only had 1 foul, but only played 16 minutes, missed both of her field goal attempts and finished with 0 points, hopefully she didn't get injured.
5-3 for the conference on the night. Going into the Thanksgiving most impressed with Boston so far. Conference race looks to be wide open, but USM looks to be a cut above the rest, however
