The women’s basketball team’s focus on improving their rebounds paid off against Centenary College College, winning by a score of 78-52 in the Nerney Field House on Feb. 3.
The Cavs stole their seventh consecutive win and remain unbeaten against Colonial States Athletic Conference opponents. The Cyclones entered Monday’s game averaging more than 84 points per game.
“Going into the game, we focused on rebounds since that is our weakness. Out-rebounding them by 26 was a big factor in how we won on Monday,” senior English and communication major Nikki Duggan said.
Senior forward Brittany McLeod led the team to a 26 point win with her fifth double-double of the season. She recorded 12 points and 15 rebounds.
“At this point in the season, it feels great to be 11-0 in the conference and begin to gain the respect we’ve been working towards,” senior English and communication major Brittany McLeod said.
Junior shooting guard Kate Walck collected a game-high 15 points on 5-for-8 shooting, including a 2-for-4 long range performance.
“It feels great to win our seventh game in a row, but as a team we are never content and are always trying to make ourselves better,” junior history major Deana DiAmico said.
DiAmico, junior court leader, collected eight points, three rebounds and three helpers.
“This was another game to make a statement of how strong of a team we are,” Duggan said. “Everyone that went in played very well.”
The Cavs will play at home on Saturday, Feb. 7, against league-rival Gwynedd-Mercy College at 1 p.m.
