UMF found itself with a 15-point lead only three minutes into the second half. The Chargers defense stepped up and held the Beavers without a field goal for five minutes and climbed back into the game, trailing by nine with 12:48 left in regulation. After a three-pointer by Jenessa Talarico, Colby-Sawyer continued to fight and tied the game at, 57-57, at the 2:02 mark.

Smith hit a clutch-shot with 30 ticks left on the clock to give the Beavers the lead. Colby-Sawyer’s Lexi Iannone shoot a three-pointer to give the Chargers the lead, but the shot found all iron and Kelly Pomerleau was there for the defensive board. After CSC was forced to foul, Lindsay Ranquist sank both free throws to seal the victory for UMF.

Meghan Smith finished a rebound shy of tying her career-high (set two weeks ago against Thomas), with 14 points, 15 rebounds, and four assists. Smith had a great day from the field, shooting 7-of-8 and seven of her 15 boards were on the offensive end. Lindsay Ranquist scored 11 points, five boards, and two assists.

Husson's First Half Lead Too Much for UMF to Overcome

FARMINGTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington (11-13, 10-7) nearly completed an improbable comeback on Wednesday night but lost, 65-57, to Husson University (16-8, 14-3) in conference action at Dearborn Gymnasium.

Facing a 17-point deficit with three minutes remaining in the first half, UMF trailed at the break, 39-24, but slowly chipped away at the lead in the second half. The Beavers were on the cusp of narrowing the Husson lead to single digits for the first 15 minutes of the second half.

UMF finally came within nine points when Kennadi Grover scored two of her 12 second half points. Lindsay Ranquist sank a jumper in the lane on UMF’s next possession to cut the lead to seven. After a missed Husson layup, Grover sank another layup and forced Husson to use a timeout to stop the momentum.

The Beavers’ defense grabbed another defensive rebound but could not make a layup on the other end. After Husson’s Victoria McIntyre sank one of two free throws, Lindsay Ranquist nailed a jumper as UMF only trailed, 59-55, with 2:11 left in the game.

Husson scored two quick buckets and UMF had to foul to stop the clock. The Eagles sank three out of four foul shots in an 18-second span to put the game out of reach for the Beavers.

Husson’s Victoria McIntyre scored a game-high 18 points and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. UMF’s Grover and Lindsay Ranquist led the Beavers with 14 points apiece. Grover shot 7-of-9 from the floor and gathered five rebounds. Lindsay Ranquist scored her 1,000th career point with a jump shot early in the second half. Ranquist becomes the 17th UMF women’s basketball player to accomplish the feat.

UMaine-Farmington will close out the regular season on Saturday afternoon at Maine Maritime Academy.

Smith Earns All-Conference Selection; Women's Hoops Gets Team Sportsmanship Award

WHITINGHAM, Vt. – The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) announced University of Maine at Farmington women’s basketball junior forward, Meghan Smith (Boothbay, Maine), as a Second Team All-Conference selection on Thursday.

NAC All-Conference selections are determined by a vote of the conference coaches.

Smith earns her first career All-Conference selection after leading the team in points (258) and rebounding (212). The forward averaged 10.0 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season. Smith recorded five double-doubles this season and set new career marks in single-game rebounding. In a home victory over Thomas, Smith grabbed 16 rebounds and then surpassed that mark with 17 rebounds in UMF’s NAC quarterfinal game.

The 6-0 defensive presence swatted 16 shots (second on the team), recorded 19 steals (fourth on the team), and dished 37 assists (fourth on the team) and she was only one of two players to start every game this season.

The junior ranked as one of the best rebounders in the conference. Smith finished second in total rebounds (212), second in field goal percentage (47.3%) fourth in offensive rebounds (77), fourth in rebounds per game (8.2), and fifth in defensive rebounds (135).
