            Providence, RI—Keene State junior guard Bri Barnes (Merrimack, NH) led all scorers with 16 points as the Owls defeated Rhode Island College, 69-45, in a battle of Little East Conference rivals. KSC snaps a four-game losing streak as it improves to 9-8 overall and 4-3 in the LEC. RIC falls to 7-9 overall and 0-7 in the LEC on the season.

 

Keene dominated for the first half and led by as many as 24 points before going ice cold in the second frame. The Owls went without a made field goal from the 16:13 mark to the 6:24 mark, a span of 9:49. RIC went on a 19-0 run during that time span to cut the Owls’ lead to 50-45. KSC responded by outscoring RIC, 15-4, down the stretch to earn the victory.
