The Lady Cavaliers extended their hot streak to six games after a huge 87-27 win at Notre Dame (Md.) University. With the blowout win Blue and White advance to 6-1 on the year and 2-0 in the CSAC.

The Lady Cavaliers put on a offensive clinic against Notre Dame. The dominating attack allowed for all 16 players to get between 10-18 minutes of play time. The Cavs received contributions from every player with 15 players scoring at least one point and 15 players grabbed at least one rebound in the dominating win.

For the Blue and White the night was a career night for both sophomore Kristina Startare, scoring a career high 12 points and senior Maggie McElroy, scoring career high 10 points. The Cavs also got double digit scoring outburst from senior Brittany Sandone adding 11 points and junior Amber Keys added 10 points.

Defense was huge for the Lady Cavs holding the Gators to just eight field goals and just 17 percent shooting. Blue and White’s tenacious defense forced 38 turnovers and the Lady Cavs capitalized on the turnovers scoring 45 points off of turnovers.

While the night wasn’t great for the Notre Dame Gators there are always some good spots in their defeat. The Gators were led by sophomore Kamelya Medina, who scored a team high 13 points, while freshman Erika Deppenschmidt put in six points while grabbing five rebounds.

For the Blue and White, dominance seemed to be the key of the game, the Lady Cavs shot just 41.2 percent from the field but grabbed 33 offensive boards and converted 21 second chance points. Cabrini imposed their will down low by out rebounding the Gators 61-43. Several players for Blue and White grabbed five or more rebounds. Freshman Meghan Horn pulled down a team high eight rebounds, while senior Annie Rivituso accompanied by freshmen Renee Oliver and Tayler Holmes each grabbed five rebounds each.
