BRUNSWICK, Maine - Tournament MVP Shannon Brady scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Bowdoin College women's basketball team over MIT, 63-45, to claim the 2014 Coastal Maine Classic crown on Wednesday evening.

The Polar Bears close out the calendar year with a record of 9-2 while MIT drops to 5-6. In addition to Brady being named Classic MVP, Marle Curle was selected to the All-Classic team for Bowdoin along with MIT's Maya Ramachandran.

Brady connected on 10 of her 17 shots from the field and grabbed five offensive boards while earning two steals and a block. Curle finished with 15 for Bowdoin while Sara Binkhorst added 11 and six assists. Kate Kerrigan tallied six points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Ramachandran had a team-high 14 points and 10 rebounds for MIT, who also got 11 points from Liana Ilutzi and eight points and seven rebounds from Sabrina Drammis.

Bowdoin scored the first five points of the game and never trailed in the opening period. MIT was able to cut into the Polar Bear lead and trail by only four, 15-11, with 12 minutes remaining in the frame but Bowdoin responded with a 14-0 run, highlighted by a pair of Binkhorst three-pointers, to take a commanding 18-point lead. The hosts carried a 29-17 lead into the break.

Despite playing only five players in the opening 30 minutes, MIT was able to chip away at Bowdoin's lead early in the second half, cutting the advantage to as few as eight points on two occasions, including following a three-pointer from Osheiza Otori that made it 42-34 with nine minutes to go. Bowdoin replied with a decisive 9-0 surge, highlighted by a three-pointer from Lauren Petit, and pushed the lead back to 17 points with under six minutes to go. The Polar Bears led by as many as 22 points in the second half before settling for the 18-point win.

Bowdoin finished at 42% shooting for the game and held MIT to 38%. The Polar Bears owned a 37-32 edge on the glass and committed just eight turnovers compared to 16 for the Engineers. Bowdoin converted 25 points off the 16 MIT miscues and put home 15 second-chance points in the victory.

The Polar Bears will return to action Sunday with another home game against Rhode Island College at 1:00 p.m. MIT will play on Saturday at home against Springfield College at 2:00 p.m.

Final: Bowdoin 70, Emmanuel 49

BOSTON, Mass. – The Bowdoin College women's basketball team dominated the second half of a 70-49 win over Emmanuel College on Tuesday night at the Jean Yawkey Center.

The visiting Polar Bears, receiving seven votes toward the Top 25 in this week’s USA Today/WBCA Division III national poll, improved to 11-2 on the season with the win. Bowdoin now holds an 11-3 all-time record versus the Saints. The non-conference loss opened up second semester action for Emmanuel, who fell to 5-8 on the season.

Bowdoin’s balanced attack featured four players scoring in double-figures, led by Sara Binkhorst’s 19 points, four rebounds and four assists. Marle Curle finished with 17 points and seven boards, including going 3-3 from behind the arc. Megan Phelps and Shannon Brady chipped in with 13 and 10 points, respectively, in the win.

The opening half featured five lead changes and four ties, before Bowdoin took over for good with 2:58 left in the first half.

Trailing 19-15 late in the opening half, Curle drained consecutive three-balls, knotting the contest at 21-all with four minutes to play in the half. Moments later, Phelps dialed in from downtown to give Bowdoin a 26-23 lead, an advantage the Polar Bears would not relinquish for the remainder of the game.

Leading 32-28 at intermission, Bowdoin opened the second half on a 9-2 run, forcing a quick timeout be the Saints, who found themselves down 41-30, six minutes into the period. Emmanuel trimmed the lead to seven points 43-36, with 11:15 to go. Bowdoin's defense would clamp down from there, permitting just one field goal over the ensuing six minutes, as the Polar Bears went on a 14-5 run. Following a baseline three by Binkhorst with 6:02 remaining, the Polar Bears stretched their lead to 62-44.

Bowdoin allowed just one field goal by the Saints over the final seven and a half minutes of the game and the visitors pulled away for the 70-49 win. The Polar Bears’ defense forced 23 turnovers by the Saints, as Emmanuel’s 52% field goal shooting at the break dropped to just 25% in the second period.

The Polar Bears will return to action on Friday, hosting Connecticut College at 7:00 p.m.

Binkhorst Named NESCAC, NEWBA Player of the Week

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin senior women's basketball player Sara Binkhorst (West Hartford, Conn.) has been named the New England Small College Athletic Conference and New England Women's Basketball Association Player of the Week.

Binkhorst enjoyed a fantastic week, sparking the Polar Bears to a 3-0 mark with a non-conference win at Emmanuel before a pair of victories to open league play against Conn. College and Wesleyan last weekend.

Dating back to the beginning of the new year, the senior captain has averaged 21.2 points and 3.0 assists while connecting on 52.6% from three-point range (10-19) and 95.8% from the free throw line (23-24). Thanks in great part to Binkhorst, the Polar Bears have won their last ten outings dating back to November 25.

Binkhorst is enjoying the finest season of her career in 2014-15, having improved her points per game each season, culminating at 15.5 so far this campaign. Her 39.9 three-point percentage is currently second-best in school history and her 116 career three-pointers sit seventh all-time at Bowdoin.

Friday begins a three-game road stretch for the Polar Bears, who will travel to play at Williams at 7:00 p.m. Bowdoin will continue on to Hamilton on Saturday for a 3:00 p.m. tip-off.
