Women's basketball falls just short of first league win

By Thomas Walter

Writer

Still desperately searching for that one elusive win, the women’s basketball team fell 50-49 to Navy in a back-and-forth contest last Saturday at home.  The Bison lost for the third time in the last seven games by a margin of four points or less.

“We are so close to a win and I think we are going to make some big upsets in the second round of league play,” Shelby Romine ’14 said.

The Orange and the Blue had one of their strongest games of the year and held possession with a chance to win in the game’s final seconds following a five-second call against Navy. Romine’s shot with a second remaining in the contest came up just short, leaving the team winless in league play.

Rachel Voss ’13 led the Bison with 13 points and Christina Chukwuedo ’12 also added 12 points for the Bison.

The Bison held a six-point lead with 12 minutes remaining in the second half, but the Midshipmen quickly rattled off seven unanswered points to take the lead. During the second half, the Orange and Blue defense could not find an answer for Navy’s Alix Membreno who recorded 15 points in the second half alone.

The Bison ended up shooting 31% from the field while Navy shot 38% from the field.  

The Bison start the second round of Patriot League play on Saturday when they make the trip to Army.

“The key to our success will be turning up the defensive pressure.  We play our best at a fast pace. We capitalize off of turnovers, scoring baskets in transition,” Romine said.
