DANIELI & GEISLER HELP RIC CRUISE TO 18-POINT WIN
 ANCHORWOMEN POST 15th VICTORY

 

     Providence, RIóRhode Island College women's basketball team earned its 15th victory of the season on Senior Night, defeating UMass Dartmouth, 60-42, in Little East Conference action this evening at The Murray Center. The Corsairs, who remain winless in league play with an 0-13 mark, fall to 5-19 on the season.

 

           Rhode Island College's 15 victories are the most in a single-season in the past three campaigns, since the 2004 squad posted 16.   
 

The Anchorwomen honored their two senior forwards Kari Geisler (Deerfield, N.H.) and Brittany Rosen (Derry, N.H.), who were playing in their last home regular season contest, prior to the start of the game. RIC trailed early in the first frame (8-7), before exploding on a 15-0 run to open up a commanding 23-7 lead. The Anchorwomen outscored the Corsairs, 24-7, to close out the half and never looked back.

 

Junior forward Josalee Danieli (New Gloucester, ME) was one of four Anchorwomen to reach double figures in scoring with a team-high 16 points and 12 rebounds, to go along with two assists and four steals. Geisler led all rebounders with 15 boards and chipped in with 15 points. It was Geislerís 10th double-double of the season and Danieliís fourth.

 

Sophomore guard Tyla Martin (Cumberland, RI) had 14 points, while senior forward Rosen registered 10 points, four assists and three steals.

 

UMass Dartmouth sophomore guard Vicki Andruszkiewicz (Danvers, MA) led all scorers with 16 points.

 

Rhode Island College controls its own destiny in heading into its regular season finale, when the Anchorwomen travel to UMass Boston at 1 p.m. on Feb. 17. Head Coach Spencer Manning's charges will host Eastern Connecticut in the quarterfinal round of the 2007 Little East Conference Tournament with a victory over the Beacons. If Rhode Island College drops its tilt with the UMass Boston, the Anchorwomen will travel to the Colonials on Feb. 20.
