Women's Basketball Dominates Early, Cruises to Win Over Williams

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's basketball team jumped to an early lead and never trailed in a 74-62 win over Williams on Sunday at Morrell Gymnasium.

The Polar Bears improve to 13-4 (3-1 NESCAC) while the 22nd-ranked Ephs drop their second straight contest and fall to 11-4 (1-3 NESCAC) with the setback.

Game Highlights

Shannon Brady dominated in the early going for Bowdoin, scoring 12 early points as the Polar Bears sprinted to a 23-2 lead
Abigail Kelly nailed a three-pointer to cap the huge run as the Polar Bears led 23-8 after one quarter of play
The Ephs committed 11 first-half turnovers and Bowdoin, despite hitting just 37% of their shots, netted 12 free throws in the opening half to maintain a double-digit lead, 42-31, at halftime
Bowdoin squelched all hopes of a second half comeback for Williams by outscoring the Ephs 15-5 in the third quarter to take a 57-36 lead into the fourth period
The Polar Bears led by as many as 22 points in the fourth quarter before a late Eph rally closed the final margin to 12
By The Numbers

Shannon Brady scored 20 points and had 10 rebounds for the Polar Bears
A trio of players scored nine points for Bowdoin - Lydia Caputi, Kate Kerrigan and Lauren Petit
Amanni Fernandez scored a game-high 23 points in the loss for Williams while Katie Litman added 12 points
Bowdoin scored 21 points off 22 Williams turnovers while committing just 12 turnovers themselves
The Polar Bears held a slim 40-35 edge in rebounding, but grabbed 15 offensive boards and converted 14 second-chance points in the victory

Brady stands tall as Bowdoin’s lone senior
Shannon Brady has led the Polar Bears to the Division III Sweet 16, where they'll play Rochester.

BRUNSWICK — Shannon Brady almost didn’t go to Bowdoin College. She was a late bloomer in high school basketball and started the college search a little later than most. She was playing at a basketball showcase at Babson College after her junior year at Scituate High in Massachusetts when someone mentioned Bowdoin and Bates as possibilities. A Bowdoin assistant was there and they started corresponding.

The assistant was impressed, and she mentioned Brady to Adrienne Shibles, the Bowdoin head coach. But the Polar Bears, like many schools, had already filled their needs. They had no spots available.
