1/17/15 – Monks Defeat AMCATS, 53-39

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (9-3, 2-0 GNAC) topped Anna Maria College (6-9, 1-1 GNAC), 53-39, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s basketball contest at the Harold Alfond Center on Saturday afternoon. Senior guard Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine) recorded 14 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals in the victory.

Saint Joseph’s opened the game on a 13-0 run, which was capped with a Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) bucket at the 15-minute mark. Anna Maria finally got on the board when sophomore guard Deja Taitt (Cambia Heights, N.Y.) made a pair of free throws with 14:28 left in the opening half.

The AMCATS, who did not record their first field goal until senior guard Katie Pryor (Whitinsville, Mass.) drilled a three-pointer at the 13:46 mark, shook off the poor start with a 19-2 offensive surge, which was closed out with a Christina Gauvin (Dudley, Mass.) layup and provided the visitors with a 19-17 edge eight and a half minutes later. The Monks committed eight turnovers and went 0-4 from the field during the game-changing run.

St. Joe’s proceeded to tie the game on a Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) jumper at the 5:32 mark and freshman guard Hayley Quirion (Augusta, Maine) lifted the hosts to a 22-19 advantage when she drained a three off an Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine) pass 28 seconds later. The AMCATS tied the tilt with a Trafficia Warburton (Worcester, Mass.) layup at the 3:24 mark, but Saint Joseph’s outscored the visitors by an 8-4 margin for the remainder of the half en route to securing a 30-26 cushion heading into intermission.
Sophomore guard Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) paced the Monks with seven first-half points while Warburton led all scorers with 11 points at the break.

Saint Joseph’s kicked off the second stanza with five straight points, as a Waggett bucket lifted the Royal Blue to a 35-26 lead with 14:40 to play. The AMCATS managed to make it a two-possession game on several occasions midway through the latter frame, but the Monks were able to collect the conference win with the help of a 12-15 free-throw shooting effort during the closing period.

For Saint Joseph’s, Cahill totaled 10 points and seven rebounds, sophomore guard Abbie Eastman (Norway, Maine) tallied 10 points and four boards, and Kehoe scored eight in the triumph.

For Anna Maria, Warburton tallied 11 points, eight rebounds and five steals, Gauvin scored 11 points with three steals, and Pryor added seven points and four boards in a losing effort. The AMCATS shot 18.5% (5-27) from the floor in the second half and 25.5% (14-55) overall.

With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 5-0 in the history of the series with Anna Maria College. The AMCATS’ point total in today’s contest counts as the fewest scored by either team during the five-game matchup.

Both teams face conference opponents on the road Monday, when Saint Joseph’s plays at Mount Ida College in a 1:00 PM tip-off and Anna Maria travels to Providence for a 3:00 PM game versus Johnson & Wales University.

1/19/15 – Cahill Nets 1,000th Career Point in 78-53 win Over Mount Ida

NEWTON, Mass. – Saint Joseph's College (10-3, 3-0 GNAC) toppled Mount Ida College (6-11, 0-3 GNAC), 78-53, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women's basketball contest on Monday afternoon. Twelve different players scored for the Monks, including junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine), who netted a game-high 15 and became the 22nd player in team history to reach the 1,000-point plateau in the one-sided game.
Cahill entered the game 14 points shy of the landmark and surpassed the four-digit total when she converted a layup with 13:51 remaining in the second half. Sophomore guard Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) was credited with the assist on the play, which was immediately followed by an SJC timeout and brief public address announcement, in recognition of the achievement, by the Mount Ida scorer's table.

Cahill is just the sixth member of the SJC 1,000-Point Club to reach the milestone during their junior season and first since Stacey Gelinas '02 accomplished the same feat in 2001. Other members in this exclusive club include former greats Linda Johnson '81, Carolyn Brooks '88, Mary Lou Kimball '89 and Kendra Coates '91.

The Mustangs were held to just 16 points on 14.7% shooting in the first half and fell into an early deficit. The Green and White found their rhythm after the break, shooting 41.9% from the field and outscoring the Monks 37-33 in the final twenty minutes.

Senior point guard Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine) was the only other player to score in double figures for the visitors, as she put up 11 points and added four steals and three assists. Nine of her points came in the first half, in which she helped bump the visitor's lead from 19 to 31 points with a 12-0 run over the final three minutes. Assante converted a three-point play and Regan McFerran (Albany, N.Y.), who had nine points in the game, hit a pair of three-pointers before a pair of free throws by Mount Ida sophomore Katlyn Jesse (Marshfield, Mass.) ended the half with the Monks ahead 45-16.

Mount Ida sophomore center Angelique Martinez (Taunton, Mass.) notched her third straight double-double with 14 points and a game-high 15 rebounds.

Jesse added six points in defeat, while Mustang freshman Imani Bumpus (W. Hartford, Conn.) scored seven points and grabbed four steals. First year Shanell Nardone (Tewksbury, Mass.) dished out a game-high four assists while scoring six points.
After Cahill's historic layup, the Mustangs pulled off a 15-2 run to cut the deficit to 24 points. They would get as close as 21 points thanks to a layup by Jamie Moscato (Taunton, Mass.), but the Monks scored the next five points and a three-pointer by Emily DeLuca (Gorham, Maine) capped the scoring for the visitors, who shot 42.2% from the field for the game and made 7-20 (35% from downtown).

Mount Ida held a 44-43 edge on the boards, thanks in part to the work of Brittany Crosby (Riverside, R.I.), who grabbed eight rebounds to go with four points. The Monks were led on the glass by Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.), who had six caroms along with five points.

Abbie Eastman (Norway, Maine) scored nine points for the visitors, and Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) scored eight points and grabbed five boards for Saint Joseph's.
The final home game in a seven-game home stand through the month of January will come next Saturday afternoon when Mount Ida hosts Albertus Magnus at 1:00 pm.
The Monks will dip outside of GNAC play this week and will travel to in-state rival Thomas College Wednesday for a 5:30 pm tip.

Saint Joseph’s Tackles Thomas, 56-40


1/21/15 – Saint Joseph’s Tackles Thomas, 56-40

WATERVILLE, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (11-3, 3-0 GNAC) topped Thomas College (1-14, 0-8 NAC), 56-40, in a non-conference women’s basketball contest on Wednesday evening. Sophomore guard Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) scored a game-high 13 points in what counted as the Monks’ fourth-consecutive victory.

Neither team shot particularly well in the game between the in-state rivals, as Saint Joseph’s posted a 31.1% (23-74) field goal percentage and Thomas recorded a 26.5% (13-49) mark from the floor on the night. The Monks managed to hold the lead from wire to wire, in large part due to a 36-10 scoring advantage in the paint along with 21 points off 25 Terrier turnovers.

Saint Joseph’s held a 27-19 advantage at the break and owned a single-digit lead until recording a 16-1 run, which began midway through the second stanza and ended with a Morgan Cahill (Standish, Maine) bucket, which lifted the Royal Blue to a 52-30 cushion with 5:30 left to play.

The Terriers outscored the Monks by a 10-4 margin in the closing minutes, but the visitors’ offensive surge proved to be too much to overcome as St. Joe’s walked away with the team’s fourth victory in as many contests during the 2015 calendar year.
For the Monks, Cahill tallied her fifth double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds, freshman Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) totaled six points and nine boards, sophomore Molly Mack (Portland, Maine/McAuley) added four points and nine caroms, and senior point guard Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine) registered six points, three rebounds, four assists and a career-high six steals. Sophomore guard Abbie Eastman (Norway, Maine) and freshman guard Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine) scored five points apiece and freshman Brianna Holdren (Portland, Maine) added four points and seven boards in 11 minutes off the bench.

For the Terriers, Katie McAllister and Taylor Reynolds scored nine points apiece while Ashleigh Gagne chipped in with eight points in a losing effort.

With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 57-5 in the history of the series with Thomas College and has now defeated the Terriers in eight-consecutive meetings dating back to the 2008-09 campaign.

Saint Joseph’s travels to University of Saint Joseph (CT) on Saturday for a 1:00 PM conference contest.

Ferraro had eight points in the first two minutes after the break on a conventional three-point play, a deep ball from behind the arc and a jump shot to help USJ ease out to a 31-24 edge. The Monks pulled within 33-29 two minutes later after a jumper from Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine). But an ensuing 9-0 run made it 42-29 USJ with 12:08 to play. Heather Framski (Prospect, Conn.) stuck consecutive jump shots in the spurt, which concluded with a Ferraro layup.

The lead peaked at 14, 46-32 on a jump shot from Carlee Putnam (Niantic, Conn.) with 10:51 to play and USJ retaining at least a nine-point lead until the closing seconds.
Ferraro shot 10 of 18 from the floor including 7 of 10 in the second half. Framski had 12 points to go with five steals. Putnam and Elisha Pertillar (Windsor, Conn.) each had seven rebounds.

Saint Joseph’s Surges Past Simmons, 75-60


1/31/15 – Saint Joseph’s Surges Past Simmons, 75-60

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (12-5, 4-1 GNAC) defeated Simmons College (4-13, 0-4 GNAC), 75-60, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s basketball contest at the Harold Alfond Center on Saturday afternoon. Junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) led the Monks with 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals in the victory.

The first half was closely contested, as the conference counterparts swapped the lead on eight occasions in the opening 10 minutes. Trailing 22-17 with 11:41 before the break, sophomore forward Molly Mack (Portland, Maine/McAuley) made a layup to ignite a 16-2 run, a scoring binge that was capped by a Brianna Holdren (Portland, Maine) six minutes later and provided the Monks with a lead they would not relinquish for the remainder of play.

Eight players netted at least six points in the victory for the Monks, as freshman forward Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) contributed 12 points and five rebounds and first-year guard Hayley Quirion (Augusta, Maine) scored nine with four assists while Holdren, senior Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine), sophomore Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) and freshman Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine) totaled eight points apiece. Mack added six points for the hosts.

Simmons sophomore Kimberlee Hixon (Taunton, Mass.), who was 6-7 from the floor, 2-3 from downtown and 7-7 from the free throw line, scored a game-high 21 points in a losing effort. Sophomore Liz Brasa (East Hartford, Conn.) came off the bench to net 11 points during 13 minutes of play while sophomore Ashley McAdams (Freeport, N.Y.) led all participants with nine rebounds and added six points on the afternoon.

Coming off a loss to University of New England in which the Monks shot a season-low 19% from the floor, Saint Joseph’s posted a collective 45.5% (30-66) effort, the second-highest mark of the season, in today’s win over the Sharks. St. Joe’s committed just 10 turnovers while scoring 26 points off 22 Simmons miscues in the victory and also registered a season-high 24 assists in the conference contest.

The Monks carried a 39-30 lead into intermission and put the game out of reach with an 11-2 outburst, which took place during a two-minute span midway through the second stanza. Waggett scored five points during the scoring surge while Hayley Quirion accounted for the other six points with a pair of trifectas, including a three that closed the run with the Monks ahead, 58-40, with 11:44 remaining.

The Sharks went on to post a 10-2 scoring run later in the half, cutting their deficit down to a more manageable 11 points (64-53) after Hixon capped the effort with a pair of freebies at the 6:04 mark, but the Monks closed the door on the visitors’ comeback hopes by netting 11 unanswered points to secure a game-high 22-point (75-53) cushion with 3:24 on the clock.

With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 7-2 all-time versus Simmons College and has now defeated the Sharks in five consecutive meetings dating back to the 2009-10 campaign.

Both teams host conference opponents on Tuesday night, when Saint Joseph’s hosts Lasell College at 5:30 PM and Simmons looks to snap a six-game skid in a 7:00 PM tip-off versus Mount Ida College.

As part of the Campus Winter Carnival festivities, the Monks will host a “White Out” event on Tuesday evening. The first 500 fans will receive a white tee shirt with a special edition logo adorned on the front and fans are encouraged to wear their new shirts at the game as they cheer on their Monks in an important conference matchup!

Freshman forward Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) tallied 13 points and six rebounds in the victory.

Saint Joseph’s held the lead from wire to wire, but did not own a double-digit lead until Waggett made a layup at the end of the first half to push the hosts’ lead to 29-19 going into the break. Lasell cut the Monks’ cushion down to three points on the heels of a 7-0 run late in the second stanza, but the hosts made six of eight free-throw attempts down the stretch to hold off the Lasers and improve to 5-1 in GNAC play.

For the Monks, junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) recorded 13 points, six rebounds and a pair of blocked shots, freshman guard Hayley Quirion (Augusta, Maine) scored 11 points off a 3-4 three-point shooting performance, sophomore guard Abbie Eastman (Norway, Maine) added eight points and nine caroms, and second-year Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) chipped in with eight points, four board and a pair of steals.

The Monks held a 46-29 advantage on the glass and a 26-6 lead in bench points on the evening.

NCAA W. BASKETBALL: Saint Joseph’s Tops Bates, 69-62


2/10/15 – Saint Joseph’s Tops Bates, 69-62

STANDISH, Maine – Junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) netted a career-high 31 points with nine rebounds and a pair of blocks to help lift Saint Joseph’s College (15-6, 6-2 GNAC) past Bates College (9-13, 0-8 NESCAC), 69-62, in a non-conference women’s basketball game at the Harold Alfond Center on Tuesday evening.

In a contest that featured eight lead changes and three tie scores, the Monks managed to secure the advantage for good with the help of a 12-1 offensive outburst midway through the second half. Freshman forward Brianne Maloney (South Portland, Maine) totaled seven points during the outbreak, which resulted in the hosts securing a 53-43 cushion with 10:48 remaining.

The Monks managed to claim a game-high 12-point lead after Cahill drained a layup off a Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine) pass, making it a 62-50 game with 5:16 left in the second half. The Bobcats would not go down easily however, as the visitors cut the margin down to seven points on several occasions in the closing minutes, but Saint Joseph’s was able to hold off the visitors by breaking the full-court press.

For the Monks, Maloney scored a career-high 14 points with four rebounds and two assists, Assante played an all-around game with seven points, nine rebounds, nine assists and a pair of steals, and sophomore guard Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) contributed eight points and six caroms on the evening.

Freshman forward Nina Davenport (Freeport, Maine) led the Bobcats with an impressive double-double effort of 22 points and 13 rebounds while sophomore center Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) tallied 12 points and 15 boards and sophomore forward Bernadette Connors (Windham, N.H.) chimed in with 12 points in the losing effort.

In the opening frame, Saint Joseph’s held a 10-5 lead after sophomore forward Molly Mack (Portland, Maine/McAuley) hit a pair of free throws 2:56 into the contest, but Bates fought back with a 7-2 scoring surge to knot the game at 12-apiece four minutes later. A see-saw battle ensued, as the in-state rivals proceeded to swap the lead five times before Cahill tapped in a layup to lift the hosts to a 23-22 edge with 8:07 left in the first half.

Saint Joseph’s opened the second stanza holding a 39-34 lead, but the five-point cushion evaporated quickly as the Bobcats began the latter frame with an 8-2 run en route to claiming a 42-41 advantage with 17:21 left in the contest. Needing someone to provide a spark, Maloney came off the bench and did just that with her performance during the aforementioned 12-1 run.

With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 14-14 in the history of the series with Bates College, a team that defeated the Monks in eight-consecutive meetings before the Royal Blue topped the Bobcats, 71-64, in Lewiston last winter. St. Joe’s has now defeated Bates in back-to-back meetings for the first time since the 2001-02 campaign.

The Monks held a 34-16 advantage in points in the paint while scoring 19 points off 20 Bobcat turnovers and posting 25 assists on 27 field goals made on the evening.
Saint Joseph’s returns to action tomorrow evening with a 7:00 PM contest versus non-conference foe Fisher College. Bates plays at NESCAC-rival Bowdoin College at 7:00 PM on Friday.

2/11/15 – Saint Joseph’s Topples Fisher, 85-55

STANDISH, Maine – Freshman forward Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) poured in a career-high 20 points with eight rebounds and junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) netted 18 to help Saint Joseph’s College (15-6) past Fisher College (3-17), 85-55, in a non-conference women’s basketball contest at the Alfond Center on Wednesday evening.
The Monks never trailed in the lopsided victory as the hosts totaled 27 points off 20 Fisher turnovers and recorded a whopping 53-0 margin in bench points on the night. Waggett led the SJC subs’ scoring performance by posting her team-high tally in just 18 minutes off the bench.

In all, 11 different Saint Joseph’s players were listed on the scoring ledger, with freshman guard Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine) tallying 13 points, four assists and three rebounds while sophomore forward Molly Mack (Portland, Maine/McAuley) and freshman forward Brianna Holdren (Portland, Maine) netted eight points apiece. Holdren also pulled down seven rebounds and junior guard Shannon McFayden (Ipswich, Mass.) chipped in with six points in the convincing victory.

Fisher freshman guard Murphy Carroll (Methuen, Mass.) led all scorers with 25 points while junior guard Sakieya Roland-Drake (Boston, Mass.) and sophomore guard Alexis Akridge (Union, N.J.) scored nine points apiece in the losing effort.

Saint Joseph’s kicked off the contest with eight straight points and held a 10-2 lead after Cahill hit a jumper at the 18:10 mark. The Falcons momentarily climbed back into the game with three-pointers from Christine Briggs (Rumford, Maine) and Murphy Carroll, with the latter cutting the visitors’ deficit down to 13-8 with 15:51 before the break.
The Monks proceeded to put the game out of reach for good with the help of a 12-2 run, which was closed out with a Waggett layup and the Monks on top, 25-10, with 12:09 left in the first half. St. Joe’s went on to claim their first 20-point lead when Waggett tapped in a layup at the 3:40 mark and carried a 47-23 cushion into intermission.
Saint Joseph’s held no less than a 23-point lead for the entire second half and claimed a game-high 31-point cushion when Cahill connected on a jumpshot to make it a 54-23 contest with 16:18 remaining.

With the win, Saint Joseph’s improves to 2-0 all-time versus Fisher College, a team the Monks defeated by a 73-51 margin in the only other meeting between the two programs, a game that was played in Boston on January 6th, 2007.

Next up for Saint Joseph’s is an important conference match-up versus Emmanuel College, a game that will be played at home on Saturday starting at 1:00 PM. Fisher plays at Pine Manor College at 1:00 PM on Sunday in what will be the team’s 2014-15 regular-season finale.

2/14/15 – Emmanuel Steers Past Saint Joseph’s, 84-68
STANDISH, Maine – Emmanuel College (14-9, 9-0 GNAC) defeated Saint Joseph’s College (15-7, 6-3 GNAC), 84-68, in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s basketball action at the Harold Alfond Center on Saturday. Junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) scored 19 points with four blocked shots in the losing effort.
Emmanuel never trailed in today’s conference contest, but Saint Joseph’s managed to carry momentum into halftime with a 15-6 run over the final three minutes of the first half, an effort that cut the Monks’ deficit from 15 points down to just six, 40-34, at the break.
Unfortunately for Saint Joseph’s, the momentum did not carry over after intermission, as Emmanuel rattled off 10 unanswered points, including five from junior guard Sarah Higgins (Groveland, Mass.), during the first four minutes of the second stanza en route to posting a 50-34 cushion.
The Monks were able to whittle the Saints’ advantage down to single digits five minutes later, as a Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) bucket closed out a 6-0 stretch to make it a 55-48 contest with 11:32 left to play. Emmanuel answered in kind, however, registering an 8-0 surge, which was capped by a Ryan Maynard (Bowie, Md.) trifecta at the 10:24 mark and effectively put the game out of reach.
The Saints proceeded to own at least an 11-point advantage for the remainder of play and extended their lead to a game-high 18 points when senior forward Vanessa Bramante (Stoneham, Mass.) converted a layup with 2:25 left.

2/21/15 – Wildcats Defeat Monks with Closing-Seconds Three-Pointer

STANDISH, Maine – Johnson & Wales University (16-9, 8-3 GNAC) defeated Saint Joseph’s College (16-9, 6-5 GNAC), 59-57, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s basketball contest at the Harold Alfond Center on Saturday afternoon. The game counted as the regular-season finale for both teams.

Saint Joseph’s held the lead for almost the entire contest, as the only lead change occurred when Johnson & Wales freshman guard Raquel Pederzani (Coventry, R.I.) drilled a three-pointer with three seconds remaining in the game, a shot that clinched the visitor’s victory.

With the result, Johnson & Wales – which has now won five-consecutive games – earns the #3 seed and Saint Joseph’s, the reigning conference champions, receives the sixth seed in the upcoming GNAC Tournament, which begins with a quarterfinal round on Tuesday evening. The Monks will travel to Providence to face the Wildcats in a first-round matchup slated to begin at 5:30 PM on Tuesday.

With the help of a 59.3% (16-27) shooting performance in the first half, Saint Joseph’s carried a 40-31 lead into intermission. Junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) led all scorers with 11 points before the break.

The Monks’ shooting success was nearly cut in the second stanza however, as the hosts went 6-19 (31.6%) from the floor, including an 0-3 effort from downtown, in the closing 20 minutes. The Wildcats actually fared worse in the latter frame, shooting 27.6% (8-29) in the closing half, but managed to outscore the Royal Blue by a 28-17 margin, thanks in part to an 11-15 free-throw shooting effort, to set up the winning bucket from Pederzani. The first-year’s trifecta was the Wildcat’s lone three-pointer in the second stanza and fifth of the game overall.

For the Monks, Cahill tallied 20 points, seven rebounds and a pair of blocked shots, freshman forward Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) added 11 points, senior guard Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine) registered nine rebounds, four assists and two points, and freshman guard Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine) contributed seven points and three steals in 16 minutes off the bench. Freshman forward Brianne Maloney (South Portland, Maine) chipped in with six points in the loss.

For the Wildcats, sophomore Bobbie Whitehead (Brooklyn, N.Y.) recorded her eighth double-double of the season with 20 points and 13 rebounds while Pederzani added 15 points with four assists and three steals in the victory. Junior Savannah Kresge (Ellington, Conn.) rounded out the double-figure scorers for JWU with 12 points off the bench.

Saint Joseph’s had control of the game early and took their first double-digit advantage when a jumper by Waggett gave the Monks the 15-4 lead with 13:40 left in the first half. The Monks led by as many as 13 points several times in the first half before JWU cut the lead to 34-28 on a three pointer by Kresge with just under two minutes left on the clock. The host Monks took the 40-31 lead heading into halftime.

The Monks held a double-digit lead as a layup by Cahill with 6:13 left in the contest made the score 54-44. Johnson & Wales then chipped away at the lead and knotted the game at 56-56 on a pair of free throws by Whitehead with 52 seconds remaining. A free throw by Cahill put Saint Joseph’s up 57-56 to set up the final play. After an inbounds play to Whitehead, the standout forward was triple-teamed and she sent a pass back to Pederzani who drained the deep three-pointer to give the Wildcats the 59-57 victory.
Johnson & Wales held a 40-31 advantage in rebounds for the contest, including a remarkable 22 offensive boards in the victory. The Wildcats also forced Saint Joseph’s into 22 turnovers in the win.

With the loss, Saint Joseph’s falls to 5-4 all-time versus Johnson & Wales University, a program the Monks had defeated in five-consecutive meetings prior to today’s result.
Prior to the start of the game, Saint Joseph’s held a brief ceremony to honor Assante, the lone senior on this year’s roster. The two-year team captain helped lead the Monks to a collective 75-34 (.688) four-year record, including a 37-10 (.787) mark in conference play during her career. Senior Student Assistant Kim Jordan (Bangor, Maine) also took part in the festivities.
