Fourth-quarter flurry carries UNE past USM

Box Score

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- After a three-pointer to end the third quarter, the University of New England then started the fourth with 15 unanswered to erase a five-point deficit and rally for a 74-62 victory over the University of Southern Maine in non-conference women's basketball action Tuesday evening (Nov. 17) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

Ranked 17th in the D3hoops.com preseason poll, UNE (1-0) has won seven of its last eight meetings with the Huskies, who dipped to 1-2 on the young season.

Alanna Vose established her career high by pouring in 23 of her 29 points after halftime, including 10 in the decisive fourth quarter. She finished with five 3-pointers and was 6-for-7 at the free throw line, while a team-high seven rebounds and five assists. Alicia Brown had 15 points and five blocks for the Nor'easters and Sadie DiPierro added 14 points, which included four shots from beyond the arc. Meghan Gribbin also had five assists and Lauren Hayden picked up six steals.

For the Huskies, Ella Ramonas tallied a team-high 18 points and seven rebounds. Alex Srolovitz supported with 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting from the field, and Gretchen Anderson added 10 points and game-best eight boards.

Vose nailed a trey with seconds left in the penultimate stanza to bring Big Blue to within 50-48, and then the Nor'easters dominated in the fourth to gain the victory. UNE held Southern Maine scoreless the initial 5:18 of the frame while reeling off 15 consecutive points. Vose had five points during the stretch, which culminated with a Meghan Gribbin bucket to give UNE a 63-50 cushion with 5:55 on the clock.

The Nor'easters would make 7 of 8 free throw attempts in the final minute to seal the victory.

The next opponent for each team is Bates College. UNE hosts the Bobcats Saturday at 1 p.m., and the Huskies entertain Bates next Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- The nationally-ranked University of New England women's basketball team raced out to a 25-5 lead after one quarter and never looked back on its way to a 101-46 victory over Bates College on Saturday afternoon (Nov. 21) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

Alanna Vose paced the No. 17/18 Nor'easters (2-0) with 20 points, including 16 in the 1st half as UNE assumed a 46-18 cushion at halftime. While the squad shot 49 percent (17 for 35) from the field during the opening 20 minutes, Big Blue turned 15 Bobcat turnovers into 20 points going the other way.

Alicia Brown and Sam MacDonald -- the other two Nor'easters to reach double digits -- split 34 points on 12-of-18 accuracy from the floor. Olivia Shaw added nine points, and Lauren Hayden filled the stat sheet eight points, seven assists, five rebounds, and four steals. Meghan Gribbin ended with eight points and eight assists, and Sadie DiPierro pulled in a team-high six rebounds to lead a 41-28 margin on the glass.

In all, 10 UNE players scored at least five points, and the final shooting tallies had the hosts converting 54 percent of their attempts (9 of 18 from deep).

For Bates (0-2), Nina Davenport and Bernadette Connors combined for 23 2nd-half points to finish with 14 and 10, respectively. Allie Coppola registered game-highs in rebounds (7) and blocks (3).

The Nor'easters make a road trip to No. 7/10 Bowdoin College on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.). The Bobcats are slated to visit the University of Southen Maine the same night (5:30 p.m.).

#16 UNE coasts to 66-46 win at #18 Bowdoin

Box Score
Portland Press Herald Coverage

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Lauren Hayden poured in a career-best 26 points to lead 16th-ranked University of New England past No. 18 Bowdoin College, 66-46, in women's basketball action Tuesday evening (Nov. 24) at Morrell Gymnasium.

With the decision between the nationally-ranked foes, the Nor'easters improve to 3-0 while the Polar Bears drop to 1-2.

Hayden made 8-for-10 from the floor and 10-of-14 at the line to surpass her previous scoring high by seven points, and added five rebounds and four steals. Alanna Vose rattled home her first field goal of the night just before the halftime buzzer and ended with 16 points. Sadie DiPierro contributed three treys (9 points) and a team-high eight rebounds. Meghan Gribbin pulled in seven boards and dished out five assists for UNE, and Olivia Shaw chipped in with seven points, five rebounds, and three blocks.

The Nor'easters shot just under 40 percent (23 for 58) from the field in the game and turned 20 Bowdoin turnovers into 18 points going the other direction.

For the hosts, who were limited to 27 percent (18 for 66) accurracy on shot attempts, Shannon Brady and Abigail Kelly led the way with 10 points apiece. Brady also collected a game-high nine rebounds for the Polar Bears, who totaled a 46-42 edge on the glass.

Shaw gave UNE its first advantage (13-12) with the last basket of the opening quarter and the visitors never trailed again. The margin increased to nine (28-19) by halftime, and extended to 15 (47-32) by the conclusion of 30 minutes.

The Nor'easters have now defeated the Bowdoin as many times in the last four meetings (3 wins, 1 losses) as they did during the first 33 contests (3 wins, 30 losses) between the programs.

UNE will have another tough test next Monday (Nov. 30) when it visits No. 3 Tufts University.

#3 Tufts tops #16 UNE in early-season battle

Box Score

MEDFORD, Mass. -- Third-ranked Tufts University used a 9-2 run in the middle of the 4th quarter to extend a five-point cushion on the way to a 55-43 women's basketball victory over 16th-ranked University of New England on Monday evening (Nov. 30) at Cousens Gymnasium.

The Jumbos move to 3-0 on the young season, while the setback is the first of the year for the Nor'easters (3-1).

Melissa Baptista led the hosts with 12 points, 12 rebounds, and three blocks. Michaela North added 10 points and 12 caroms, Emma Roberson finished with nine points and six steals, and Lauren Dillon contributed nine points along with six assists. Tufts scored nearly half (25) of its points off 25 UNE turnovers, and converted 22 offensive boards into 17 second-chance points.

The Nor'easters received a game-high 15 points, nine rebounds, and four blocks from Alicia Brown. With her first rejection of the game, Brown became the UNE career leader in the blocks, moving past the 118 of Kelley Paradis '12. Olivia Shaw had 10 points and six rebounds. Meghan Gribbin totaled six assists.

Each defensive system was frustrating to the opponent, as the teams combined for just 33 percent shooting accuracy overall and only 5-of-30 from long range.

An 8-0 start by the Jumbos over the initial 3:43 was countered by a 9-0 stretch from UNE in the ensuing 1:35. However, seven in-a-row for Tufts -- including the rest of Roberson's points -- set the home team up an advantage the rest of the way and a 15-11 buffer after 10 minutes.

Tufts increased the margin to six (24-18) by halftime, although both squads could only find the range on 19 percent of the shot attempts in the 2nd period.

The gap got up to 10 during the 3rd frame, but settled back at six (35-29) entering the final stanza. When things closed to 39-34, Josie Lee canned a trey from the corner as the Jumbos began their separating spurt.

Shortly after the contest, D3hoops.com released its first Top 25 Poll of the regular-season, with Tufts at No. 3 and UNE at No. 10. The Coaches Poll, used for the above rankings, will be updated on Tuesday.

UNE will entertain Wentworth Institute of Technology on Wednesday (5:30 p.m.) in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) opener.

Nor'easters cruise past WIT to open CCC play

Box Score
Photos

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Alicia Brown scored 13 of her game-high 19 points before halftime to help the University of New England to a 42-23 advantage, and the Nor'easters breezed in the second half en route to an 82-37 win over Wentworth Institute of Technology in a Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) mutual opener Wednesday (Dec. 2) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The Nor'easters (4-1, 1-0 CCC), who are ranked 10th in the latest D3hoops.com national poll, have won their last 16 meetings with the Leopards (2-3, 0-1) and have been victorious in 44 consecutive CCC regular-season home contests. UNE is a perfect 28-0 in regular-season conference games at the Harold Alfond Forum since the facility opened in 2012.

Brown was 8 of 16 from the floor and shared game-high honors with seven rebounds. Olivia Shaw contributed 12 points on a 6-for-11 performance from the field while matching Brown with seven caroms. Sadie DiPierro chipped in 12 points for the Nor'easters, who made a solid 47.9 percent (35 of 73) of their field goal attempts. Brooke Flaherty came off the bench to score eight points and collect five caroms.

Carly Rogers was the lone WIT player in double figures, scoring 10 points to go with three steals. Courtney McCormick tallied six points, and Rachel Camara had five points, a team-best six rebounds and three assists.

Trailing 5-4 in the opening minutes, UNE closed the first quarter by scoring 18 of the next 21 points to take control and lead 22-8 after one. Brown, Flaherty and Shaw combined for 13 of the 18 points during the spurt.

In the second half the Nor'easters outscored Wentworth 40-14 while holding the visitors to just 26.3 percent (5 of 19) accuracy from the floor. The Leopards shot 28.3 percent (13 of 46) for the game and were forced into 28 turnovers.

UNE had 10 of its 11 players in uniform log double-digits in minutes, with no player seeing more than 24 minutes of court time.

Both teams return to action Saturday with conference contests. Wentworth hosts Nichols College (1 p.m.), while the Nor'easters head to Springfield, Mass. for a tilt at Western New England University (1 p.m.).

Big Blue rallies in 4th to edge Golden Bears

Box Score

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- With 12 of the game's last 14 points over the final 5:27, nationally-ranked the University of New England erased a five-point deficit to chalk up a 57-52 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) women's basketball decision over Western New England University on Saturday afternoon (Dec. 5) at the AHL Center.

The #10/16 Nor'easters improve to 5-1 overall, 2-0 in the CCC with their 15th straight win over the league foe. The Golden Bears drop to 3-4 on the year (1-1 CCC).

WNE extended its one-point lead through three quarters up to 50-45 with 7:28 left. But the hosts would go more than seven minutes without a point (0-9 FG) and committed five turnovers during that time as UNE cranked up the defensive pressure and started to rally.

A pair of free throw by Olivia Shaw drew the Nor'easters to within two (50-48) at the 3:59 mark, and a minute later Shaw put in a layup to even the score. On the next possession, a steal and breakaway lay-in by Sadie DiPierro shifted the visitors in front for good. Big Blue made 5-of-6 freebies in the waning moments to seal it.

Alicia Brown led all players with 15 points for UNE, 14 of which came in the opening half. Alanna Vose and Sam MacDonald ended with 11 and 10 points, respectively, with a combined 14 of those coming after the midway break. Shaw tallied all of her eight points in the closing 20 minutes. Lauren Hayden registered 10 rebounds and six assists.

The Nor'easters, who trailed for more than 26 minutes in the contest, overcame 28 percent field goal shooting (including 2-of-24 from deep) by turning 22 Golden Bears turnovers into 22 points and converting 18 offensive rebounds into 13 points. UNE also posted a +11 point-margin at the charity stripe.

For Western New England, which had a 41-35 advantage on the glass, Chelsea Vujs recorded a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds. Emily Anderson also scored 10 points. The Golden Bears shot 43 percent in the match.

Big Blue's largest lead of the day came at the start, as Brown had seven points in a 9-0 cushion just 2:35 in. However, WNE wrapped up the initial period with a 13-2 run to go up three (16-13) through 10 minutes.

Though UNE notched the first five of the 2nd quarter, a 10-2 spurt by the hosts established their biggest lead of the game at 26-20. The gap was three (28-25) at halftime.

Again, the Nor'easters began a frame (3rd) with five points to briefly slip in front, but were short one (44-43) on the scoreboard heading into the final stanza.

UNE will have two weeks off before outings in back-to-back days on a trip to Puerto Rico -- on December 20, the Nor'easters will face #20/17 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and then square off against Concordia University (Wisc.) on December 21.

UNE rolls past Salve with 2nd-quarter surge

Box Score

NEWPORT, R.I. -- During a span of 10:19 from the late 1st-quarter through much of the 2nd period, the University of New England rattled off a 32-5 run and cruised to a 76-42 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) women's basketball victory over Salve Regina University on Saturday afternoon (Jan. 9) at the Rodgers Recreation Center.

The Nor'easters (8-3, 5-0 CCC) have now won the last nine meetings against the Seahawks (4-9, 3-3 CCC).

Since returning to conference action earlier in the week, Big Blue has cranked up the defensive pressure, and it continued to be effective against SRU. With 25 forced turnovers and limiting Salve to 27.7 percent shooting from the floor, UNE's last three opponents have turned it over 103 times and converted just 28.8 percent (40 of 139) of their field goal attempts.

The attack was balanced for the Nor'easters, as Olivia Shaw and Alanna Vose each tallied 13 points. Brooke Flaherty added 12 points and Lauren Hayden contributed 11 points, six rebounds, four steals, and three assists. Sadie DiPierro pulled in a game-high nine rebounds, including seven from the offensive glass.

The Seahawks received team highs of nine points and six rebounds from Deanna McCarvell. Leading scorer Meaghan Harden did not get on the board until past the midway mark of the 3rd stanza and was held to her lowest point-total (5) of the year, nearly 13 below her season average.

It was 13-10 before UNE started the separating run, and the visitors posted 30 points in the 2nd frame to gain a 47-18 advantage at halftime.

Salve Regina came out of the break with six straight points to make a small dent in the deficit, but the Nor'easters responded with nine of the next 11 to negate any momentum shift.

UNE heads for Nichols College on Tuesday (5:30 p.m.).

Nor'easters rally to edge Roger Williams, 65-60

Box Score
Game Highlights

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- The University of New England scored the game's final nine points to secure a 65-60 women's basketball win over Roger Williams University and remain unbeaten in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) action on Saturday afternoon (Jan. 16) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

UNE trailed by four (60-56) after back-to-back hoops by the Hawks down the stretch, but a three-pointer by Sadie DiPierro with 2:07 left cut the margin to one. Empty possessions both ways ran the clock well under a minute until Alicia Brown knocked down a jumper to slide the Nor'easters in front at 61-60 with 21 ticks to go. Lauren Hayden ripped a steal as RWU went to inbound the ball, and moments later (0:11), Meghan Gribbin sank a pair at the charity stripe to set the advantage at three.

The Hawks missed on a long-range attempt to tie but retained possession with the rebound tipped out-of-play off UNE. The ensuing play with four seconds showing resulted in a traveling violation, though, and Gribbin made two more at the line with 0.6 remaining to seal it.

Big Blue (11-3) goes to 8-0 in the CCC with its sixth straight victory, while Roger Williams drops to 8-7 overall and 5-3 in league games.

Leading the way for UNE was Brown with 20 points, including the initial 11 of the match. Gribbin matched her season-high with 13 points to go with six assists. Hayden drained a pair of treys and added 10 points along with seven steals.

Near the end of the 3rd quarter, Gribbin's third helper of the contest moved her into the top spot on UNE's career assist list, passing the previous record of 406 held by Melissa Roller '04.

RWU got 16 points and seven assists from Angelica Ariola, and 14 points out of Katie Lowerre. Bridget Quilty pulled in a game-high 12 rebounds, as the team amassed a 40-26 cushion on the glass.

The Hawks shot 47 percent on the day, including 8-of-15 from downtown, but were hampered by 30 turnovers in the midst of the UNE pressure. The Nor'easters, meanwhile, relinquished possession without a shot 11 times, and had just three turnovers in the second half.

The Nor'easters ended the 1st frame with two triples to gain a 17-11 cushion, and Brooke Flaherty twice pushed the gap to eight (21-13) early in the 2nd period before Roger Williams surged into halftime to grab a 33-29 lead. Ariola tallied nine of her side's last 17 points in the stanza.

Following intermission, the Hawks were ahead the vast majority of the way, other than three instances where UNE edged in front by one (36-35, 46-45, 51-50).

Big Blue will wrap up the first round of the CCC schedule on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) with a showdown at Endicott College (7-1 CCC).
