Calvo, Brown pace women's basketball past Elms in season opener, 76-58
v
CASTLETON, Vt. -- Seniors Kristin Calvo and Molly Brown led the way in the Bates women's basketball team's season opener, as the Bobcats cruised to a 76-58 win over Elms College on Saturday afternoon, at the Rutland Herald Tipoff Classic hosted by Castleton State.

Calvo (South Deerfield, Mass.) netted a game- and career-high 17 points and added six assists for Bates (1-0), while Brown (South Dartmouth, Mass.) contributed 16 points, a career-high six assists and six rebounds in her first game since Feburary 2013. Brown, a team co-captain this year with sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.), missed her entire junior season with injury.

Elms (0-1), which finished 18-10 a year ago, was led by Emily Burr's 14 points and Gianna Youngblood's 13. Youngblood made 3-of-4 shots from beyond the arc. Mariah Brown pitched in with eight points, four assists and six rebounds for the Blazers.

Coppola snagged a game-high 15 rebounds for Bates in addition to six points, and junior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass.) notched a double-double with 13 points and 11 boards. The frontcourt combination led the Bobcats to a 54-39 advantage on the glass.

Sophomore Bernadette Connors (Windham, N.H.) pitched with 12 points and four assists, tying career highs in both categories. Bates totaled 20 assists on 27 field goals made.

Nason had 11 points and nine rebounds before intermission to stake Bates to a 41-35 lead at the break. Bates then began the second half with an 11-2 run, with all five starters making hoops in the run as the Bobcats opened up a 52-37 lead.

Three-pointers by Calvo and first-year Emily Freedland (Marblehead, Mass.), followed by a Brown layup and Connors jumper, helped Bates build a 20-point advantage at 62-42 with 11:47 left. First-year Alanna Morque (Rye, N.Y.) later scored six points in an 8-2 Bates burst, and Brown answered a Youngblood three with one of her own, assisted by Calvo. Brown then assisted Calvo on a layup to make it 76-50 with 6:24 remaining in the game.

Bates will take on Castleton on Sunday at 2pm. The host Spartans went 56-6 over the past two seasons, including a 64-62 win at Bowdoin en route to the Sweet 16 in last year's NCAA tournament.

Women's hoops nearly upsets Castleton behind Connors, Coppola

Bernadette Connors made the all-tournament team at the Rutland Herald Tipoff Tournament after totaling 16 points and 12 rebounds against the host Spartans on Nov. 16, 2014 in Castleton, Vt. (File photo by Phyllis Graber Jensen/Bates College)
CASTLETON, Vt. -- Castleton saw its double-digit lead evaporate in the second half but never lost the lead and got a game-saving block from Meghan O'Sullivan in the last second to secure a 58-55 win over the Bates women's basketball team in the last game of the Rutland Herald Tip-Off Classic on Sunday afternoon.

Sophomore forward Bernadette Connors (Windham, N.H.) led the Bobcats with a career-high 16 points on 6-for-9 shooting with four 3-pointers. She also added a career-high 12 rebounds in earning a spot on the all-tournament team.

Sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) added 11 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals. Senior Molly Brown (South Dartmouth, Mass.) was in double figures with 15 points on 3-for-18 shooting from the floor.

The Bobcats trailed 58-55 with just nine seconds left as Bryanna DuPont stepped to the line for the first shot of a one-and-one. She missed the free throw and Bates raced the ball up the court. The team swung it around the perimeter looking for an open shot before senior Kristin Calvo (South Deerfield, Mass.) was forced to hoist a three from the top of the arc with time running out. O'Sullivan read the play and leapt at the attempt, getting a few fingers on the ball as it fell short of the basket.

The Spartans held the Bobcats to just 28.1 percent shooting for the game and without a field goal over the final 5:10. Castleton finished at just 39.0 percent shooting for the game after making 5 of 25 attempts in the second half. The Spartans did outrebound Bates 48-41 as they improved to 2-0 with the win. The Bobcats dropped to 1-1 as they forced 15 Castleton turnovers which turned into 14 points.

Tournament MVP Jade Desroches led the offense with 17 points and seven rebounds but went 7-for-20 from the floor. O'Sullivan was picked to the All-Tournament team after putting up 12 points, six rebounds, two assists and two blocks. DuPont was solid with 10 rebounds, three assists, two points and zero turnovers in 30 minutes.

Castleton jumped out to a 9-3 lead on a trio of triples, including two from Lindsay Sabo, in the opening 92 seconds. The team extended its lead to 19-9 on a triple from Desroches with 13:13 left in the half. A personal 6-2 run by O'Sullivan made it 25-14 minutes later and Makayla Farrara extended it to 29-19 at 7:42 with a three. Bates responded with a 7-4 run to cut the lead to 33-26 with 3:27 left in the half, however, the Spartans outscored the Bobcats 10-2 over the final three minutes to go up 43-28 at the break.

The second half was a different story as a 9-4 run made it a ten-point game less three minutes into the period. At 10:44 junior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass.) trimmed the deficit to 49-42 on a triple and four minutes later Connors hit another shot from beyond the arc to make it just 54-49. Desroches was fouled and made one of two free throws on Castleton's ensuing possession, but back-to-back jumpers by Brown and Calvo put Bates back just 55-53 with 5:10 remaining.

Brown eventually tied the game at 55 apiece on two free throws, but Desroches came back with a layup for a two-point lead with just 2:59 left. The Bobcats missed their next three shots and Desroches went 1-for-2 from the line at 1:38 for the 58-55 advantage. Bates' best chance to tie it up came as Brown launched a pair of threes with 21 and 12 seconds left. Neither fell, and DuPont eventually secured the rebound and was fouled to set up the final sequence.

Castleton (2-0), which advanced to the Sweet 16 last season, outrebounded Bates (1-1) 48-41 and outscored the Bobcats 27-10 in the paint.

Bates next plays at Husson on Tuesday at 7pm.

Prue back in the game

LEWISTON — Kirsten Prue was so busy since graduation that she didn't think about missing basketball after her career ended at Bowdoin College. She was ready to move on and was excited about new opportunities in her life. But then basketball came calling — again. “I wasn’t looking for a coaching job,” Prue said. “I was taking classes and applying to grad school.” It was actually Bates College women’s basketball coach Jim Murphy that called Prue. He asked if she’d be interested in being as assistant coach with the Bobcats. So in addition to teaching, taking classes and preparing for grad school, Prue added coaching to her list of activities. “It was a great opportunity for me,” Prue said. “So I took advantage of it.”...

Women's basketball romps to 97-61 win over UMF in home opener

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College women's basketball team made a team-record 15 3-pointers, including nine in the first half, in a 97-61 win over UMaine-Farmington on Thursday night in the Bobcats' home opener at Alumni Gymnasium.

Bates (3-1) made 9-of-17 threes in the first half and 15 of 30 in the game, with eight different players connecting from long distance. Junior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass.) scored a game-high 17 points, making 4-of-6 from downtown, to lead the Bobcats, while sophomore Bernadette Connors (Windham, N.H.) and senior Molly Brown (South Dartmouth, Mass.) added 14 apiece, with both forwards adding five assists apiece. Senior Kristin Calvo (South Deerfield, Mass.) dished out a career-high nine assists to go with six points, and sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) grabbed 12 rebounds with six points and three steals.

Nine Bates players who are newcomers to the roster this season received their most playing time to date, and the Bobcats outscored the Beavers 40-18 in points off the bench. First-year Alanna Morque (Rye, N.Y.) led bench players with nine points, seven rebounds and four blocked shots in 16 minutes. Emily Freedland (Marblehead, Mass.) also scored nine and Lyse Henshaw (Brunswick, Maine) added eight points.

Meghan Smith led the Beavers (0-3) with 14 points and five rebounds. Kelly Pomerleau pitched in 12 points and Elizabeth Ferry added 10. Lindsay Ranquist had five assists to go with seven points, three steans and four rebounds, and Kennadi Grover scored nine points off the bench.

After a Pomerleau layup made it 8-6 in Bates' favor early in the game, Bates embarked on a 23-2 run in a span of less than seven minutes. Nason began the burst with an offensive putback with 16:43 to go. Calvo fed Brown on a three-point play to make it 15-6 at 15:13, and Nason made her first three at 13:36 to make it 20-6. She made another three 13 seconds later on a Calvo feed before Brown joined in with a three on a Nason assist to make it 26-6 at the 11:33 mark. Brown then assisted Freedland on Bates' sixth three of the period for a 31-8 lead with 9:55 to go. Morque, Nason and Connors each canned an additional triple before the period concluded with Bates ahead 50-31.

The Bobcats picked up where they left off to start the second period, with Calvo draining a three nine seconds in and Brown making another on Bates' second possession, for a 56-31 lead. Back-to-back layups by Smith, assisted by Ranquist and Ferry, closed it to 56-35 before Nason connected on her fourth three of the game. Ferry's jumper and a free throw by Pomerleau cut the deficit back to 21 at 59-38, but that was as close as the Beavers would get the rest of the way. A three by Bates' Eve Zuckoff opened the lead up to 30 at hte 11:28 mark, and the Bobcat bench expanded the lead to as many as 37 points with 2:59 to go.

Bates' previous team record for 3-pointers in a game was 12, set on three previous occasions, most recently in February 2012 against UMaine-Presque Isle.

Bates next plays Saturday at 2pm at Bowdoin, in the rivals' annual non-conference matchup. UMaine-Farmington returns to action on Monday as the Beavers travel to Saint Joseph's (Me.) at 5:30pm.

Bates basketball goes cold in second half as Bowdoin pulls away, 65-48

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Bowdoin pulled away in the second half to defeat the Bates women's basketball team, 65-48, on Saturday afternoon in a non-conference game at Morrell Gymnasium.

The Polar Bears improved to 3-1 with the victory while the Bobcats fell to 3-2.

Sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) added 10 points and 13 rebounds while senior Molly Brown (South Dartmouth, Mass.) also had 10 points for the Bobcats in addition to seven rebounds and a career- and game-high five blocked shots.

Bowdoin called time out and clamped down defensively, holding the Bobcats scoreless for over 10 minutes until a pair of Nason free throws with 6:11 to go. Meanwhile, the Bowdoin offense kicked into gear, as Phelps scored eight points in a decisive 19-0 Polar Bear run that extended the lead to 57-34 with 6:11 remaining.

Brown, Calvo spearhead comeback from 18 down to tip USM, 61-60

LEWISTON, Maine -- Senior Molly Brown hit a jump shot with six seconds remaining as the Bates women's basketball team overcame an 18-point second-half deficit to defeat the University of Southern Maine 61-60 on Tuesday night at Alumni Gym, Bates' first win over its in-state rival since 2010.

Brown's game-winning jumper represented Bates' first lead since it was 6-4.

Senior Kristin Calvo (South Deerfield, Mass.) drained three 3-pointers in the final 3:37 of the second period to spearhead the Bobcats' furious late comeback.

The Bobcats raised their record to 5-2 this season, while the visiting Huskies fell to 2-2.

Brown (South Dartmouth, Mass.) finished with a game-high 27 points, including 18 in the second half, in addition to 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots. Calvo finished with 13 points. Sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) grabbed 12 boards to go with four assists.

Megan Pelletier led the Huskies with 15 points to go with nine rebounds. Ella Ramonas had 14 points and 13 rebounds, while Rebecca Knight added eight points and 10 boards.

Leading 34-21 at halftime, the Huskies began the second half with five straight points, culminating with a three-point play by Pelletier, to go up 39-21 with 18:55 left.

Brown began the long climb back with a three on a Coppola assist, and Coppola soon after scored four straight points to cut the deficit to 41-28.

Following Ramonas's layup at the 15:58 mark, the Huskies went without a field goal for six minutes until another Ramonas hoop underneath made it 49-41 in the Huskies' favor. The Bobcats cut the lead into single digits on a three by junior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass.) to make it 47-39 with 10:43 to go.

After a Brown layup, USM scored four straight buckets, including two in a row by Knight, to bump the lead back to 14 at 57-43. After a pair of free throws by USM's Taylor Flood made it 59-45 with 6:32 to play, Bates rejoined its quest to whittle away the lead with a Brown three at the 5:38 mark.

Neither team could score again until Calvo made her first three with 3:37 left in the game to cut it to 59-51. USM missed the front end of a one-and-one on its next possession, and Calvo swished another three to cut it to 59-54 at 3:07.

With 46 seconds remaining, Brown was fouled by Ramonas after releasing a missed 3-point attempt. Brown made both free throws with 1:17 left to make it 60-56.

Pelletier missed a layup at the other end and Brown grabbed the rebound. With 46 seconds to go, Calvo hit her third straight three, assisted by Nason, and the Huskies called timeout with 37 seconds left, nursing a 60-59 lead.

Out of the timeout, Ramonas missed underneath and Nason rebounded, allowing Bates to call timeout with 16 seconds left to set up a final shot. Out of the timeout, Brown dribbled near the top of the circle and beat her defender one-on-one, drifting into the lane and pulling up with a jumper that hit the back rim and dropped in.

With no timeouts left, USM could only rush up the court for a desperation shot, but Knight was called for an offensive charge before the Huskies could get off a final shot.

Bates will next play at Colby on Sunday at 4pm in the rivals' annual non-conference matchup. USM will host St. Joseph's on Sunday at 5:30.

Brown completes Bates comeback

LEWISTON — One big shot led to another. Then another big shot led to the biggest basket of the night. Molly Brown's jumper from the top of the key fell with five seconds left Tuesday, lifting Bates College to a thrilling 61-60 comeback win over the University of Southern Maine at Alumni Gymnasium. "I just tried to stay calm," Brown said. "I've been a little anxious lately when I've got my shot. I just tried to stay calm and make it for the win."...

Women's basketball falls to Colby for first time in five meetings, 79-54

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Mia Diplock scored 21 points and Carylanne Wolfington added 20 to lead Colby College to a 79-54 win over the Bates College women's basketball team on Sunday in Wentworth Gym, in the annual non-conference matchup between the NESCAC rivals.

Colby (6-0) remained unbeaten while dealing Bates (5-3) its first loss in three games. It was the Mules' first win over the Bobcats since January 2012, snapping a four-game win streak in the series for Bates.

Sophomore Bernadette Connors (Windham, N.H.) led Bates in scoring with nine points to go with six rebounds and a team-high four assists. Sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) added eight points and eight rebounds. Senior Kristin Calvo (South Deerfield, Mass.) also netted eight points and junior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass.) contributed six points, six rebounds and three blocked shots. First-year guards Lyse Henshaw (Brunswick, Maine) and Emily Freedland (Marblehead, Mass.) combined for 13 points off the bench.

The Mules shot 55.2 percent from the floor in the first half to jump out to a 16-point lead by the break. Diplock scored 12 points and Caitlyn Nolan added 10 in the period, making 4-of-5 shots from the field.

Bates (5-3 overall) entered the game on the heels of a big come-from-behind 61-60 win against University of Southern Maine, but Colby took control right from the start with six straight points to begin the game.

With the Mules leading 18-14 with 9:54 remaining, Colby went on a 13-0 run to push the lead to 21-14 with 7:19 to go. Diplock had two 3-pointers during the run, and the Mules went into halftime with a 44-28 lead.

Bates got as close as 11 points at 44-33 when Nason scored inside. The Mules, however, used an 11-0 run to push the margin to 55-33 with 16:33 to play.

Colby continued to widen the score and held its largest lead of 32 points when Nolan hit two free throws for a 71-39 lead with 7:33 remaining.

Diplock shot 9-for-13 from the field and 3-for-5 effort from 3-point range to go along with four steals. Wolfington made four of her seven 3-point shots. Nolan added her first collegiate double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. MaryKate Caverly finished with 12 points on 4-for-6 shooting and added three assists and three steals.

Women's basketball runs past Maine-Augusta in second half, 80-66

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College women's basketball team erased a five-point halftime deficit with a 19-2 run to begin in the second half, defeating UMaine-Augusta 80-66 in a non-conference game Wednesday night at Alumni Gymnasium.

Bates (6-3) may not have expected such a tough opponent in UMA (6-4), but the visiting Moose gave the Bobcats all they could handle for much of the game. UMA center Jamie Plummer led the Moose with 25 points, eight rebounds and five blocked shots. Kylie Kemp added 14 points, making 5-of-6 from the field and 4-of-4 from the foul line, and adding three steals. Carmen Bragg contributed 12 points, six rebounds and five assists.

Bates sophomore Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y.) scored 22 points, her first collegiate 20-point effort, and hauled down a game-high 15 rebounds, seven off the offensive glass, to go with four assists and three steals. Bates totaled 22 assists, with four starters collecting four or more apiece. The Bobcats shot 46.5 percent from the field, including 45.5% (10-22) from beyond the arc.

Senior Molly Brown (South Dartmouth, Mass.) added 20 points, eight rebounds and five assists, while sophomore Bernadette Connors (Windham, N.H.) contributed 18 points, six rebounds and five assists. Junior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass.) had 14 points, seven rebounds and a game-high four steals, and senior Kristin Calvo (South Deerfield, Mass.) distributed a game-high six assists.

UMA led for the majority of the first half, and by as many as 10 points. Plummer and Kemp had 10 points apiece at the break; for Bates, Brown had 12 and Connors 11.

A layup by Plummer, assisted by Jessica St. Amand, gave UMA a 19-17 lead with 11:03 to go, and the Moose led for the rest of the period. A Plummer jumper at the 9:19 mark, followed by a three by Bragg, began a 12-3 run by the Moose, giving them a 32-22 lead with 4:52 left. Three-pointers by Brown and Connors in the final minute of the period closed the gap to 40-35 at the break.

The Bobcats clamped down on defense to start the second half, holding the Moose without a field goal in the first 6:47. Connors began the half with a jumper, and layups by Nason and Coppola returned the lead to the Bobcats at 41-40. Calvo then canned a three, and after a pair of free throws by UMA's Kemp, Bates reeled off five consecutive 2-point baskets -- two apiece by Coppola and Nason, to open up a 54-42 lead with 14:07 to go.

Plummer scored 12 points in a row for the Moose down the stretch, including three layups and a 3-pointer, which cut Bates' lead into single digits for the final time at 73-64 with 3:54 to go. Brown responded with a layup, assisted by Connors, and after a missed three by UMA's Kori Coro, Brown returned the favor by assisting Conors for a three and a 78-64 lead with 2:11 to go, all but sealing the victory.

Bates' next game is in 27 days; the Bobcats face MIT on Dec. 30 at 2pm in the Bowdoin Classic in Brunswick, followed on Dec. 31 with a game against Clark University at Bowdoin.
