COLBY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL FALLS, ENDS SEASON AT 16-9

AMHERST, Mass. --- The Colby College women's basketball team ended a fine season at 16-9 overall after falling to 12th-ranked Amherst College in a NESCAC quarterfinal game Saturday.

The Mules, despite being the sixth seed in the eight-team tourney, arguably had the toughest quarterfinal game. Amherst won its 110th consecutive game at home, the NCAA record for all divisions. The Jeffs moved to 23-2 overall and will play in the NESCAC semifinals next weekend.

Colby was led by Mia Diplock with a team-high 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting from downtown. Carylanne Wolfington and Caitlyn Nolan added eight each, while Brooke Chandor grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. Wolfington also led all players with three steals.

Megan Robertson posted a game-high 16 points for Amherst and fell one rebound shy of a double-double, finishing with nine. She also blocked a game-high five shots as the Jeffs totaled 14 as a team. Joining her in double-figures was Hannah Hackley with a season-high 14 points, adding six rebounds and a season-high three blocks as well, and Ali Doswell with 11 points. Meredith Doswell led the team in assists (4) and rebounds (10), and also blocked three shots and recorded two steals.

The Mules got on the board first Saturday when Diplock hit one from downtown within the opening seconds, but a layup by Hackley on the
Jeffs' ensuing possession sparked a 10-0 run to put the home team ahead at the 15:21 mark, 10-3.

Colby cut the deficit to four following a free throw from Diplock minutes later, and again at the 11:12 mark following a three-pointer from Nolan. Amherst put together another run as Cheyenne Pritchard capped off a 9-0 spurt as Amherst took a double-digit lead with less than 10 minutes to play before the break.

Amherst increased its lead to 18 following a layup from Robertson, while both teams were held scoreless the final 2:46 of the half to give the Jeffs a 33-15 advantage at the midway point. Hackley led all scorers at the break with 12, while Nolan posted a team-high five points for the Mules.

The Jeffs extended its lead to 25 early in the second half following a 3-pointer from Ali Doswell, and led by as much as 27 at the 7:13 mark.
