OLFINGTON HAS 25 POINTS FOR COLBY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL IN TOUGH LOSS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. --- The Colby College women's basketball team still had a chance to win Monday despite shooting struggles for most of the game in a tough 65-63 non-conference setback to Coast Guard Academy at Embry-Riddle University.

The Mules finished their trip to Florida with a 1-1 record and fell to 8-2 overall.

Colby shot 36.4 percent (24-for-66) from the field and 26.7 percent (8-for-30) from 3-point range. The Bears shot 51.9 percent (27-for-52) from the field and hit 46.7 percent (7-for-15) on their 3-point shots.

The Mules stayed in the game by winning the turnover and steal battle. Colby forced 18 Bear turnovers and had just nine turnovers, though two costly turnovers in the final 1:22 of play. The Mules also had an 11-4 edge in steals.

Carylanne Wolfington finished with a game-high 25 points on 10-for-18 shooting and added a team-high eight rebounds for Colby. Caitlyn Nolan finished with 14 points, six rebounds, five steals, and three assists. Brooke Chandor and Mia Diplock both had eight points and the two combined for seven assists.

Meghan Fornaro paced Coast Guard (4-4 overall) with 20 points on 8-for-13 shooting. She had 47 points in the Bears' two games in Florida. Torie Sutherland hit the game-winning basket on the way to 12 points and a game-high nine rebounds.

Coast Guard held a 63-59 lead with 4:16 to play, but Wolfington nailed a 3-point shot to cut the margin to one with 3:55 remaining. After a Bear basket made it 65-62, Chandor tied the game for the ninth time with a 3-point shot with 2:34 to go.

Both teams struggled with missed shots and turnovers until Sutherland scored inside with five seconds remaining for a 67-65 margin. After a Colby timeout, Wolfington missed a 3-point shot at the buzzer.

The game was close the entire way. Coast Guard held the biggest lead of the game at six points (20-14) in the first half. Colby's biggest lead was 50-45 with 11:12 to go, but the Mules had three costly turnovers to let the Bears take the lead at 51-50.

The Mules head back to Maine and will visit University of Maine at Farmington on Saturday at 1 p.m.

COLBY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL HOLDS ON TO BEAT HAMILTON

CLINTON, N.Y. -- Colby College's Haley Driscoll and Carylanne Wolfington scored 11 points apiece and the Mules edged the Hamilton College Continentals 47-45 in a NESCAC game at Hamilton's Margaret Bundy Scott Field House on Friday night.

Sam Graber made a layup that pulled the Continentals within 47-45 with 53 seconds left. Colby missed a 3-point shot on its next possession and Samantha Srinivasan '18 grabbed the rebound for Hamilton.

The Continentals (9-6, 1-2 NESCAC) called a timeout with 17 seconds remaining. Theresa Salud took the inbounds pass, dribbled into the lane and lost the ball. The Mules grabbed the loose ball and called a timeout.

Hamilton was forced to foul and the Continentals put Wolfington on the line for a 1-and-1 with 7.1 seconds to go. She missed the front end and Graber ended up with the rebound. She dribbled into the front-court and launched a 3-pointer that was on target but the shot was short and just grazed the front of the rim. The buzzer sounded as players scrambled for the loose ball.

Caitlyn Nolan chipped in nine points for Colby (11-3, 2-1). Brooke Chandor added eight points and eight boards, and Mia Diplock handed out four assists.

Graber, who was leading the NESCAC in scoring at 18.9 points per game going into the evening, finished with 11 and seven rebounds. Adrianna Pulford tied a career high with 10 points and Caroline Barrett posted nine points and four assists. Srinivasan contributed eight boards off the bench.

The game was close throughout as there were 16 lead changes and eight ties, and when the Mules led by six points at 45-39 with 4:00 left, it was the largest lead of the night for either team.

Hamilton jumped out to a 7-2 lead on a layup by Graber, a 3-pointer by Salud and a layup by Lauren Getman. Colby roared back with a 12-2 run fueled by a pair of Wolfington 3-pointers for a 14-9 advantage midway through the first half.

The Continentals responded with a 7-0 spurt for a 16-14 edge with 8:40 remaining. Neither team led by more than two points the rest of the half. Driscoll scored from close range with 38 seconds to go and the teams went to the break tied at 22-22.

A jumper by Pulford marked the first points of the second half nearly three minutes in as Hamilton took a 24-22 lead. Neither team could find much breathing room until Srinivasan broke a 32-32 tie with a three-point play with 9:45 left.

Driscoll scored the next seven points and gave the Mules the lead for good at 39-35 with 7:50 remaining. Two free throws by Wolfington with 4:00 to go gave Colby a 45-39 cushion. Baskets by Barrett and Pulford pulled the Continentals within 45-43 with 1:48 left. Chandor's jumper made it 47-43 with 1:20 remaining.

The Mules shot 37.3 percent, including 4 of 22 from 3-point range. Hamilton shot 32.2 percent, including 3 of 19 from long range. The Continentals missed all nine of their attempts from beyond the arc in the second half. Hamilton held a 39-34 advantage on the glass. Colby leads the all-time series, 12-1.

The Mules travel to No. 17 Williams on Saturday for a 3 p.m. game.

GOOD FIRST HALF NOT ENOUGH FOR WOMEN'S BASKETBALL IN LOSS

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. --- The Colby College women's basketball team led by as much as 12 points in the first half against 17th-ranked Williams College, but the Ephs battled back to tie the game at halftime and then pulled away in the second half for a 74-66 win in NESCAC play Saturday.

After a tight win over Hamilton College on Friday night, the Mules came out ready to play against the Ephs (14-3 overall, 2-2 NESCAC). Colby darted out to a 14-8 lead after about six minutes. The Mules extended the lead to 12 points (28-16) when Caitlyn Nolan scored a basket with 8:44 to halftime.

Colby still had a solid lead at 36-27 with 2:35 to play. The Ephs, though, went on a 10-1 run the rest of the way for a 37-37 tie at the break.

The Mules held their last lead of the game at 48-46 when Carylanne Wolfington drained a 3-point shot with 15:03 to go. The Ephs again used a run - this time 10-0 - to take a 56-48 lead with 10:14 remaining. The Mules got as close as six points with 41 seconds to play.

Mia Diplock finished with 18 points and Wolfington had 16. Brooke Chandor added 11 points and a team-high eight rebounds. Nolan and Haley Driscoll each had seven points.

Ellen Cook led all scorers with 28 points, including a 5-for-7 effort from 3-point range, for the Ephs. Williams shot 56 percent from the field.

The Huskies led 6-0 just three minutes into the game and still led 10-3 with 15:29 to play. The Mules, though, settled down and Chandor had 17 first-half points to help Colby take a 41-24 lead at the break.

Samira Cruz led Husson with 14 points, three assists, and two steals.

Husson held its last lead of the game, 34-32, when Cruz hit a jumper with 16:52 to play. Wolfington followed with a 3-point shot to start an 8-0 Colby run and a 40-34 margin with 14:12 to go.

With the Mules leading 42-38, Colby used a 14-4 run to take a 14-point margin at 56-42 with 6:25 left. The Eagles got as close as five points (62-57) with 1:37 remaining.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL HEADS TO AMHERST FOR PLAYOFFS

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's basketball team officially earned the sixth seed in the New England Small College Athletic Conference Championships and will play at third-seeded Amherst College on Saturday at 3 p.m.

The Mules are back in the NESCAC playoffs for the first time since 2012. Amherst is 4-0 in the postseason against Colby, including a 69-54 win in the league title game in 2010.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL GETS TOUGH PLAYOFF ASSIGNMENT

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's basketball team is back in the New England Small College Athletic Conference playoffs, but the Mules do not get an easy task despite earning the sixth seed in the eight-team tournament.

Colby (16-8 overall) will play at third-seeded Amherst College at 3 p.m. Saturday in a league quarterfinal game. The Jeffs had won four straight NESCAC titles before falling in the championship game to Tufts University last year.

The game will be webcast at http://nsnsports.net/colleges/colby/ and live statistics are available at http://www3.amherst.edu/~sports/tas2/xlive

The Mules went from 7-17 a year ago to a 16-8 overall record this season under head coach Julie Veilleux. The Mules made the improvement despite losing junior Desi Smith for the entire season with an injury.

Carylanne Wolfington averages a team-high 14.9 points and leads the team in 3-point field goal percentage (41.1). Mia Diplock is at 12.1 points per game and also ranks second in assists (64).

The emergence of sophomores Caitlyn Nolan and MaryKate Caverly helped the Mules go 4-6 in conference play. Nolan averages 11.1 points per game and shoots 36.4 percent from 3-point range, while Caverly leads the team in assists (76) and is third in NCAA Division III in free throw percentage (91.0, 61-of-67).

Brooke Chandor leads the Mules in rebounding (5.9) and ranks fourth on the team in scoring (9.3). First-year Haley Driscoll is at 7.9 points and shoots a team-best 51.3 percent.

Amherst, ranked 12th nationally, took a 65-54 win over the Mules earlier this season at Wadsworth Gymnasium. The Jeffs are currently in a 109-game home winning streak, the longest in any division ever in women's basketball.

Ali Doswell leads Amherst (22-2) in scoring at 12.3 points per game.
