BSC senior forward Colleen Feeney (Providence, RI) posted her third double-double of the season with 21 points and 18 rebounds to lead the Bears to victory. The Bears took a 31-18 advantage into the locker room and used a 10-0 run early in the second half to balloon the lead 21 points at 41-20. Rhode Island chipped away very late in the second half but did not make a serious threat.

 

Feeney, who connected on 9-of-15 field goals for the game, almost had a double-double at the half as she went into the locker room with 16 points and nine boards.

 

Senior guard Justine Farroba (North Attleboro, MA) also played very well for the Bears as she scored a season-high 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting including 4-for-7 from three point range. Farroba also added three rebounds, three steals and two assists. Also scoring in double figures for the Bears was senior guard Caitlin Feeney (Providence, RI) who added 17 points to go along with six rebounds and six assists. Eleven of Feeney's 17 points came from the free throw line in the second half alone.

 

Bridgewater dominated the boards in this one as the Bears out-rebounded the Anchorwomen by a margin of 53-t0-35 including a 24-8 advantage on the offensive glass.
