Southern Maine Cruises Past Thomas 64-24

SALEM, Mass. – Senior Ella Ramonas (Portland, Maine/Deering) scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the University of Southern Maine Huskies to a comfortable 64-24 win over the Thomas College Terriers in the third game of the Salem State University Tip Off Classic Saturday afternoon at Twohig Gymnasium.
Southern Maine shrugged off another cold start, after trailing Thomas 12-11 at the end of the first quarter, to outscore the Terriers 53-12 in the final three quarters to secure head coach Samantha Allen's first career win. Southern Maine is now 1-1 on the season. Thomas falls to 0-2 with the loss.

Ramonas was 7-for-11 from the field and 2-for-3 from the free throw line for the game-high total. Senior Megan Pelletier (Winslow, Maine/Messalonskee) added 11 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots, and senior Jill Madden (North Andover, Mass.) chipped in with nine points, four steals and two assists.

Kate McAllister led Thomas with seven points and Ashleigh Gagne chipped in with five points. Kelly Macomber had a game-high 10 rebounds for the Terriers.

Trailing 12-11 heading into the second quarter, USM held Thomas to just one field goal on 1-for-12 shooting en route to outscoring the Terriers 19-2. Ramonas scored eight of her 16 points in the pivotal quarter on 4-for-4 shooting. The Huskies' duplicated their defensive effort in the third quarter, again limiting the Terriers to just one field goal, to outscore TC 22-6 for a decisive 52-20 lead. Pelletier scored seven of her 11 points in the quarter. The Huskies continued to roll in the fourth quarter led by six points from freshman Erin Murphy (Winterport, Maine/Hampden Academy).

Southern Maine remains on the road for its next contest at the University of New England on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.). The game will be streamed live via Channel 6 sports and will feature commentary from Husky alum and former three-time captain Nicole Garland (Portland, Maine/Deering). Thomas College travels to nearby Colby College next Tuesday (7:00 p.m.) for a non-conference game.

Southern Maine’s Balance Downs Bates 65-56

GORHAM, Maine– Senior Ella Ramonas (Portland, Maine/Deering) led a balanced offense with a game-high 16 points as the University of Southern Maine Huskies overcame an early deficit to defeat the Bates College Bobcats 65-56 in a non-conference women's basketball game Tuesday night at Hill Gymnasium.
With the win, Southern Maine evens its record at 2-2. Bates remains winless on the season dropping to 0-3.

Ramonas was 5-for-12 from the field with six rebounds, five assists and a pair of steals to lead the Huskies. Senior Megan Pelletier (Winslow, Maine/Messalonskee) added 11 points and three rebounds, shooting 5-for-9 from the field in limited minutes. Senior Gretchen Anderson (Kittery Point, Maine/St. Thomas Aquinas), sophomore Miranda Nicely (Farmington, Maine/Mt. Blue) and freshman Alexa Srolovitz (Montreal, Quebec/New Hampton) scored nine, eight and seven points a piece.

Bates sophomore Nina Davenport (Freeport, Maine) led the Bobcats with a double-double scoring 15 points and grabbing a game-high 10 rebounds. Junior Allie Coppola (Tarrytown, N.Y./Hackley School) and senior Chelsea Nason (Boxford, Mass./Masconomet) each scored 12 points.

Bates jumped out to an early 9-0 lead sinking consecutive three pointers from Davenport and Nason. Stunned by the early hot-shooting of the Bobcats, Southern Maine trailed 14-5 with 5:40 left in the first quarter before rallying to take an 18-17 lead at the break. After another Davenport three gave Bates its 14 points, USM ran off six straight points on a jumper from Nicely, a layup from Srolovitz and a bucket from Ramonas to trim its deficit to 14-11 with 3:12 to play.

Davenport stemmed the Huskies' run with a layup, but USM outscored Bates 7-1 in the final moments of the quarter capped by a three from sophomore Kayla Stacy (Auburn, N.H./Pinkerton Academy) to take an 18-17 lead.

In a defensive second quarter, USM outscored Bates 10-9 to take a narrow 28-26 lead at the half. Ramonas and freshman Kimberly Howrigan (Fairfield, Vt./Bellows Free Academy) had four points each in the quarter for USM.

Clinging to a one-possession lead to start the second half, the Huskies' got another three from Stacy and a tough basket in the paint from Ramonas to extend their lead to 33-26 with 6:48 to play in the quarter. Bates used a 5-1 run, capped by a Davenport jumper at the 3:04 mark, to again pull to within one possession but the Huskies responded with a 9-2 run to grab its largest lead of the game, 43-33, with 1:08 in the third. Five different players scored in the run for the Huskies. Bates closed the quarter with a three from sophomore Lyse Henshaw (Brunswick, Maine) to trail 43-36.

In the fourth quarter, Pelletier dominated the paint scoring six of her 11 points in the first five minutes. Pelletier's layup at 4:44, off of an adept pick-and-roll assist from sophomore Kristie McNall (Wakefield, Mass.) capped a 14-8 run for the Huskies and gave them a 57-46 lead.

After Pelletier's layup, Bates charged back to within two possession, 57-52, with 3:25 to play following an 6-2 run led by four points from Coppolla. However, Pelletier again came up big for the Huskies' with a bucket in the paint to make it 59-57 with 2:17 to go and the Huskies' closed the game out on the line making 6-of-8 down the stretch for the win.

Southern Maine returns to action on Sunday (5:30 p.m.) at local rival St. Joseph's College (Maine). Bates hosts Colby on Sunday (2:00 p.m.).

St. Joseph’s Outlasts Southern Maine 74-67

STANDISH, Maine – Freshman guard Kelsi McNamara (West Newbury, Mass./Pentucket Regional) scored a game-high 35 points to lead the St. Joseph's College (Maine) Monks to a 74-67 win over the University of Southern Maine Huskies' Sunday night.

With the win, St. Joseph's improves to 5-1 on the season and earns possession of the Costello Cup for the first time in four seasons. Southern Maine, which falls to 2-3 with the loss, leads the Costello Cup series with St. Joseph's College 21-5 and the overall series between the two schools at 41-7. Contested over the last 27 seasons, the Costello Cup honors the late Dr. Richard "Doc" Costello, former USM Athletic Director and long-time basketball coach.

McNamara was outstanding for the Monks making 9-of-18 from the field, including 6-of-8 from three, and 11-for-12 from the free throw line, accounting for nearly half of the SJC offense. Sophomore Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine/Cony) added 15 points as the only other Monk in double figures.

Senior Megan Pelletier (Winslow, Maine/Messalonskee) led three Huskies in double figures with 18 points and a game-high nine rebounds. Classmate Ella Ramonas (Portland, Maine/Deering) added 13 points and seven rebounds, while senior Gretchen Anderson (Kittery Point, Maine/St. Thomas Aquinas) tossed in 11 points. Sophomore Kristie McNall (Wakefield, Mass.) added nine points off of the bench, and freshman Alexa Srolovitz (Montreal, QC/New Hampton) chipped in with six points and tied for game-high honors with six assists.

Both teams had big quarters in the opening half. USM led 20-9 after the first quarter had played paced by seven points from Ramonas and six from Pelletier. The Monks countered, however, with a 26-9 second quarter to take a 35-29 lead at the break. McNamara had 15 of her 35 points in the second quarter.

USM closed the gap in the third quarter to trail by three, 52-49, outscoring the Monks 20-17, setting the stage for an exciting fourth quarter. Trailing by eight, 63-55, with 5:18 to play after a SJC layup, the Huskies rallied to within a basket of the Monks with 1:37 in regulation with a 9-3 run. A pair of Anderson free throws and a layup from Pelletier made it 63-59, before McNamara sank one of her six threes in the game to make it 66-59 on the Monks' next possession with 3:30 on the clock. After a set of missed possessions on either side of the ball, Srolovitz canned a three at the 2:43 mark, making it 66-62 before Pelletier grabbed a defensive rebound and converted a feed from Anderson for a 66-64 game with just over 90 seconds to play.

The Monks were able to answer on their next possession, however, as sophomore Brianne Maloney (South Portland, Maine) converted a layup and SJC closed it out on the free throw line making 6-of-6 down the stretch for the win.

Southern Maine held a slight edge in shooting, making 39.7 percent (23-for-58) from the field and 9-for-25 from the three. SJC shot 37.7 percent (20-for-53) and 8-for-14 from three. However, the Monks held a distinct advantage in free throw attempts making 26-of-32 (81.3 percent), while USM made 12-of-16 (75.0 percent).

Southern Maine will host non-conference opponent nationally-ranked Bowdoin College on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.). Prior to the game, Southern Maine will dedicate the court at Hill Gym, Fifield Court, in honor of retired USM women's basketball coach Gary Fifield (7:00 p.m.). St. Joseph's will participate in the Colby Classic on Saturday (6:30 p.m.) and will face University of Maine Fort Kent.

Southern Maine Knocks Off Nationally-Ranked Eastern Connecticut 51-43

WILLIMANTIC, Conn. – Trailing by six, 31-25, midway through the third quarter, the University of Southern Maine Huskies' women's basketball team outscored the nationally-ranked Eastern Connecticut State University Warriors 11-2 over the next 4:11 to seize a 36-33 lead en route to a 51-43 win in a Little East Conference women's basketball game Saturday afternoon at Francis C. Geissler Gymnasium.

Facing its third nationally-ranked team this season (Bowdoin, University of New England), Southern Maine improves to 3-4 overall and is 1-0 in the Little East Conference with the win. Eastern Connecticut, ranked 23rd in the WBCA Coaches' Poll, falls to 0-1 in the Little East and 4-3 on the season. The Warriors, who return three starters from last season's Little East Conference Championship team that advanced to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, were picked to repeat as LEC Champions in the coaches' preseason poll. ECSU's other two losses are to third-ranked Tufts and fourth-ranked Amherst.

Freshman Alexa Srolovitz (Montreal, Quebec/New Hampton) and senior Gretchen Anderson (Kittery Point, Maine/St. Thomas Aquinas) each scored 12 points to lead the Huskies. Senior forward Megan Pelletier (Winslow, Maine/Messalonskee) added eight points. Eastern Connecticut was led by 13 point from junior Jordyn Nappi (Southington, Conn./Mercy) and 10 points from senior Erin Brooks (Billerica, Mass./Billerica Memorial).

Eastern Connecticut grabbed its 31-25 lead on a traditional three-point play from junior Julia DePoi (Brookfield, Conn.), before the Huskies rattled off six consecutive points to knot the score up at 31. Sophomore Emily Nicholson (Quispasmis, New Brunswick/Kennebecasis Valley) hit a jumper, classmate Kayla Stacy (Auburn, N.H./Pinkerton Academy) came up with a steal and made one of two free throws and another sophomore Miranda Nicely (Farmington, Maine/Mt. Blue) converted a three-point play of her own with a layup and a free throw.

The Warriors stemmed the Huskies' rally with a pair of free throws, but USM closed out the quarter on a 5-0 run on a layup from Nicholson and a buzzer-beating three from Srolovitz to make it 36-33 in favor of USM. Stacy assisted on both of the Huskies' final baskets in the quarter.

ECSU pulled to within a point of USM early in the fourth quarter on a jumper from senior Danyelle Rodriguez (Willimantic, Conn./Windham); however, the Huskies responded with a 9-0 run over the next four minutes to lead 45-35 with 4:28 to play. Srolovitz's layup was followed by a three-pointer from Stacy, and Pelletier connected on a bucket in the paint before Anderson capped the run with a layup.

The Huskies remained in front of the Warriors and led by 10, 49-39, with 1:59 on the clock after another Srolovitz basket, before ECSU made a run to trim its deficit to six on back-to-back layups from Brooks and Nappi. However, Anderson closed the win out on the line as Anderson sunk a pair of free throws and then came up with a steal as time ran down for the 51-43 victory.

Southern Maine remains on the road and will face traditional rival Salem State University on Tuesday (7:00 p.m.). Eastern Connecticut will host non-conference opponent Westfield State on Tuesday (8:00 p.m.).
