Saint Joseph’s Stymies Suffolk, 68-50

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (12-3, 3-0 GNAC) cruised past Suffolk University (9-7, 1-2 GNAC), 68-50, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) women's basketball contest at the Harold Alfond Center on Monday afternoon.

THE LEAD

Saint Joseph's jumped out to a 20-8 lead by shooting 47.4% (9-19) from the floor in the first quarter and never trailed in the conference matchup, as the Monks led by as many as 27 points midway through the fourth quarter.

For St. Joe's, today's victory was very much a team effort, as nine different players found the scoring ledger in the first half and 11 individuals netted at least one point overall.

TEAM STATS

Saint Joseph's shot 39.1% (25-64) overall, 31.6% (6-19) from three-point distance, and 63.2% (12-19) from the free throw line while Suffolk posted efforts of 38.5% (20-52), 25% (3-12) and 70% (7-10) from the field, downtown, and the charity stripe, respectively, on the afternoon.

The Monks held advantages in rebounds (41-35), assists (21-13), steals (10-6), blocked shots (4-2), turnovers (14-23), points off turnovers (18-6), points in the paint (32-26) and bench points (30-13) in the victory.

NOTEWORTHY

With 13 points in today's win, Cahill moves past Danielle Bouchard '95 on the Monks' all-time scoring list and currently ranks sixth with 1,446 points through 96 career contests.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

With the win, Saint Joseph's improves to 8-7 in the history of the series with Suffolk University, a team that defeated the Monks by a 68-51 margin in Boston last season (2/17/15).

NEXT!

Saint Joseph's hosts Thomas College in a non-conference contest on Wednesday at 7:00 PM. Suffolk returns to action Saturday with a home game versus GNAC-rival Lasell College starting at 1:00 PM.

2/25/16 – Monks Fight Past Rams, Advance to GNAC Championship!

BOX: http://www.gomonks.com/sports/wbkb/2015 ... 022516.htm
STANDISH, Maine – Top-seeded Saint Joseph’s College (22-5) defeated #4 Suffolk University (17-10), 74-58, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Tournament Semifinal at the Harold Alfond Center on Thursday night.

THE LEAD
With a trip to the GNAC Championship, and a chance at claiming the GNAC’s NCAA DIII Tournament automatic qualifier, on the line, the conference counterparts played through four tie scores and seven lead changes in the first two quarters.

Neither team held a lead greater than three points until the Monks broke a 20-20 deadlock a 13-4 run, which began with a Kelsi McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) three-pointer at the 5:08 mark of the second stanza and capped, a little over three minutes later, with a Julia Champagne (Brunswick, Maine) layup, staking the hosts to a 33-24 advantage heading into intermission.

St. Joe’s claimed the first double-digit lead of the night (35-24) when freshman forward Emily Benway (Rochester, N.H.) netted a pair of free throws 1:37 into the third quarter. The Monks proceeded to lead by at least 10 points for the remainder of play and held a game-high 18-point (56-38) cushion when senior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) hit a jumper with 7:03 left in the fourth.

With three seniors – Chelsea Campellone (Fall River, Mass.), Alessandra Quadri (Sudbury, Mass.), and Katie Murray (Holden, Mass.) - in the fold, the Rams showed plenty of fight in the closing minutes. Trailing by 18, Suffolk managed to make things interesting with a 16-8 burst, cutting the Monks’ lead down to 10 (64-54) with 2:19 left, but Saint Joseph’s managed to stem the tide by sinking all 10 free-throw attempts in the final two minutes.

PLAYOFFS?
With the victory, Saint Joseph’s advances to the GNAC Championship for the third time in the last five seasons and will host #3 Emmanuel College in the title game at 2:00 PM on Saturday. Emmanuel defeated #2 Johnson & Wales University, 71-61, in the other side of the tourney bracket earlier this evening.

For the Rams, tonight’s loss likely signals the end, outside of an ECAC Tournament berth, of the 2015-16 campaign.

LEADERS – SAINT JOSEPH’S

• Cahill led all scorers with 18 points and added six rebounds and three blocked shots

• McNamara netted 14 with five assists

• Benway contributed 12 points and six boards

• Freshman guard Hannah Marks (Waldoboro, Maine) scored eight points off the bench

• Champagne added six points, five caroms, and three assists
LEADERS – SUFFOLK

• Junior guard Kelsey Schiebel (Windham, N.H.) registered 15 points, five rebounds, and five assists

• Junior forward Alexandra Clarke (Boothbay Harbor, Maine) chipped in with 12 points, nine boards, and three rejections

• Junior guard Georgia Bourikas (Hull, Mass.) came off the bench to score 11 points with four rebounds and a pair of assists

TEAM STATS
Saint Joseph’s shot 41% (25-61) from the floor, 27.8% (5-18) from three-point range, and 70.4% (19-27) from the free throw line. Suffolk countered by shooting 35.6% (21-59) overall, 22.2% (4-18) from beyond the arc, and 75% (12-16) from the charity stripe.
Saint Joseph’s maintained the advantage in rebounds (40-36), assists (17-14), turnovers (9-13), second-chance points (17-10), points in the paint (24-20), and bench points (26-16) in the victory. Suffolk posted an 11-9 edge in points off turnovers in the losing bid.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING
Saint Joseph’s is now 8-8 all-time versus Suffolk University and, with tonight’s win, avenges a pair of GNAC Tournament Semifinal setbacks at the hands of the Rams, who cut the Monks’ season short in second round of the conference tourney in 2011 and 2013.
