WOLFINGTON'S SHOTS HELP COLBY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TOP BEACONS

WATERVILLE, Maine --- With the score tied 72-72, Colby College's Carylanne Wolfington (Hallowell, Maine) hit a drive to the basket with 1:24 remaining and then nailed a 3-point shot with 50 seconds left to propel the Mules to a 79-74 season-opening win over University of Massachusetts at Boston in non-conference women's basketball.

The Mules (1-0 overall) will play at Lasell College at 3 p.m. Sunday. UMass-Boston (0-1) also will play Lasell in its next game on Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the Salem State tourney.

The Mules led 40-24 at halftime and seemed to be cruising to an easy win. The Beacons, though, started rebounding in the second half and chipped away at the lead for most of the half.

UMass-Boston took its first lead of the game at 72-71 when Grace Geary (Falmouth, Mass.) scored on a drive with 2:32 to play.

Wolfington started her run of six straight points by going 1-for-2 from the foul line with 1:56 left to tie the contest at 72-72. After Wolfington's drive and trey, Colby's Caitlyn Nolan (Barrington, R.I.) made one of her two free throws for a 7-0 scoring run and a 78-72 lead.

UMB's Olivia Murphy (Canton, Mass.) scored with 15 seconds left to cut the margin to 78-74. Brooke Chandor (Barrington, Ill.) scored the final point of the game on a free throw with 13 seconds to play.

Rebounding and shot selection were two keys to the game. The Mules had a 20-16 rebounding margin at halftime, but the Beacons battled hard in the second half and led 42-33 for the game. Colby shot 53 percent (16-for-30) in the first half only to watch the Beacons shoot 47 percent (18-for-38) in the second half.

Colby had five players in double figure, including co-captain Mia Diplock (Augusta, Maine) with 19 points, six rebounds, and five assists. Chandor and Nolan both added 16 points, with Chandor shooting 5-for-6 from the field and 3-for-4 from 3-point range. Wolfington added 13 points and four assists, while first-year Haley Driscoll (Bedford, N.H.) had a fine debut with 11 points on 5-for-6 shooting

UMB also had five players in double figures, including two double-doubles in scoring and rebounding. Murphy had 18 points and a game-high 13 rebounds, while Mallory Nelson (Topsham, Maine) shot 6-for-9 on the way to 13 points and 10 boards. Katie Mathieu (Coventry, Conn.) added 14 points, Geary had 12 points and six assists, and Katrina Edwards (Springfield, Mass.) just missed a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds.

NOLAN HELPS COLBY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL HOLD OFF WELLESLEY

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Caitlyn Nolan (Barrington, R.I.) scored a collegiate-high 26 points and the Colby College women's basketball team held off a furious Wellesley College rally for a 54-53 win on the second day of the Colby Classic on Sunday.

The Mules improved to 4-0 overall, while the Blue drop to 2-3. The games in the tourney were scheduled ahead of time, but this served as a championship game after Colby and Wellesley both won Saturday's games.

The emergence of Nolan has been the story of Colby's unbeaten start to the season. After scoring just 47 points in 24 games as a first-year, Nolan has 70 points in her first four games. She is averaging 17.5 points, shooting 50 percent (13-for-26) from 3-point range, and has just three total turnovers while averaging 33 minutes per game.

With Colby suffering from injury issues and foul problems, Nolan nearly scored half of the Mules' points. Lauren Barnhart (Columbus, Ohio), a transfer from Kenyon College, had her best game by nailing all three of her four 3-point shots for nine points and had three steals. MaryKate Caverly (Point Pleasant, N.J.) had a team-high six assists and had six points.

Morgyne Weaver (Oklahoma City, Okla.) finished with 18 points, nine rebounds, and four assists for Wellesley. Kayla Jang (South Pasadena, Calif.) tied Caverly for a game-high six assists and had nine points. Chelsi Scott (Portland, Mich.) had a game-high nine rebounds and scored six points.

The Mules dominated the first 15 minutes of the contest, opening up a 22-5 lead with 5:14 to halftime. Caverly's two free throws with 1.6 seconds to intermission gave Colby a 34-18 lead.

Colby still had a healthy 14-point margin with 13 minutes to play, but Wellesley chipped away at the lead behind better shooting and more rebounding. The Blue, after shooting 20.8 percent in the first half, were 50 percent shooters in the final 20 minutes. Wellesley also ended the game with a 34-32 rebounding margin after trailing 17-15 at the break.

With Colby up by 13 points, Natalie Anderson (Bellevue, Wash.) nailed a 3-point shot for the Blue and Scott added an inside score to cut the margin to 46-38.

The Mules still led by eight points after Nolan scored on a nice cut to the basket on an out of bounds play to make it 52-44 with 4:57 remaining.

Ailis Hanley (Cranston, R.I.) followed with a 3-point shot for the Blue to cut the margin to five points with 4:30 to go. Hanley added another score with 1:58 remaining to bring the score to 52-49.

The Mules almost turned the ball over to the Blue, but had a loose ball go to Caverly and she was fouled. Caverly calmly sank both free throws for Colby's last points of the night with 37 seconds left.

Wellesley got another big 3-point shot when Weaver connected from the top of the key with 24 seconds to play to bring the margin to 54-52. After a Colby missed one-and-one with 11.7 seconds left, Weaver was fouled with 4.3 seconds to play and a chance to tie the game. She made the first shot, but missed to the right on the second. Colby missed another one-and-one with 3.4 seconds to play to give the Blue one more chance. Anderson ran into a Colby player around the half-court line and unleashed a shot that hit the back of the rim at the buzzer.

Wellesley had 17 assists on its 18 made field goals and nailed nine 3-point shots. Colby had 15 assists on 17 baskets and were 6-for-12 from 3-point range.

Nolan leads Colby in scoring (17.5), made 3-point field goals (13), and minutes played (33.0). She also has taken care of the ball, making just three turnovers in the opening four games.

In the latest NESCAC statistics, Nolan ranks fourth in the league in scoring (17.5) and tied for seven in field goal percentage (50 percent).

In her first season as a Mule, Nolan scored 47 points in 24 games a year ago. She has 70 points in the opening four games this season.

Colby shot 16-for-16 from the field, with Wolfington and Parsons both shooting 6-for-6 and Diplock at 4-for-4. The Monks were 6-for-9 from the foul line.

The other big difference for Colby was turnovers and steals. The Mules forced 25 St. Joseph's turnovers and had 18 of their own. Colby had 15 steals to St. Joseph's seven.

WOLFINGTON NAMED MAINE WOMEN'S BASKETBALL CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby College's Carylanne Wolfington (Hall-Dale/Hallowell, Maine), who helped the Mules improve to 6-0 overall with two wins last week, was named the Maine Women's Basketball Coaches Association (MWBCA) Co-Player of the Week on Tuesday.

Wolfington, a 5-foot-7 junior guard/forward, averaged 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in victories against Bates College and Thomas College. She shot 53.8 percent (7-for-13) from 3-point range, 51.9 percent (14-for-27) from the field, and made all four of her free throws.

In the non-conference game against Bates, Wolfington was 4-for-7 from 3-point range and finished with 20 points and three assists. She added 19 points on 8-for-14 shooting in an easy win against Thomas.

In the latest New England Small College Athletic Conference statistics, Wolfington ranks seventh in the league in scoring (14.8) and eighth in 3-point shooting (48.3 percent, 14-for-29).

Wolfington has 552 career points, 286 rebounds, 79 assists, and 79 made 3-point shots.

The Mules put their unbeaten record on the line against two tough opponents this week. Colby heads to St. Joseph's (5-1) for a 7 p.m. game Wednesday and then entertains Bowdoin (4-2) at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Wolfington shared the weekly Maine honor with University of New England's Alanna Vose

BOWDOIN WOMEN'S BASKETBALL HANDS COLBY FIRST LOSS, 56-48

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's basketball team forced 24 Bowdoin College turnovers, but the Polar Bears dominated the boards and Megan Phelps (Southwest Harbor, Maine) finished with 16 points and eight rebounds in a 56-48 non-conference win Saturday.

Bowdoin moved to 6-2 overall, while the Mules had their seven-game win streak snapped and dropped to 7-1.

Bowdoin had a big 43-24 margin in rebounding. The Polar Bears had five players with five rebounds or more, while the Mules had none.

Phelps was 8-for-12 from the field, using a variety of inside moves and hard drives to the basket. Sara Binkhorst (West Hartford, Conn.) added 15 points on 5-for-10 shooting, while Siena Mitman (Mequon, Wis.) and Kate Kerrigan (Wellesley Hills, Mass.) both had seven points. Kerrigan had four offensive rebounds and tied Phelps for game-high with eight.

Carylanne Wolfington (Hallowell, Maine) led Colby with 15 points and made three 3-point shots in the second half. Mia Diplock (Augusta, Maine) and Caitlyn Nolan (Barrington, R.I.) both scored nine points for the Mules. Diplock also had a game-high five steals.

At one point in the opening half, Bowdoin only had a 17-14 rebounding edge and the Mules were able to stay close. Colby took its only lead of the game at 21-19 after going on a 9-0 run. The Polar Bears went ahead 26-23 at halftime after Marle Curle (Plattsburgh, N.Y.) drained a 3-point shot with 28 seconds to go.

The Mules came out sluggish in the second half and Bowdoin made them pay. With Bowdoin up 27-25, the Polar Bears used an 8-0 run to make it a 10-point game at 35-25 with 15:25 to play.

Colby got as close as seven points after Haley Driscoll (Bedford, N.H.) hit a short jumper to make it 45-38 with 7:40 remaining. Bowdoin recovered and quickly got the lead back double digits at 56-40 with 1:11 left. The Mules used a press to force some turnovers and went on an 8-0 run to end the game.
