Women’s basketball takes fourth seed

By Eric Weiss

Senior Writer

The women’s basketball team rallied in the second half to beat Army 44-40 on the road on Saturday. The win gave the Bison the No. 4 seed for the Patriot League Tournament, earning the Orange and Blue a home game for the tournament’s first round.

In one of the most important games for the Bison all season, it seemed early in the second half that all would be for naught. Down 11 with 14:15 to play in the game, though, the Orange and Blue leapt into action. Over the next six minutes the Bison held the Black Knights scoreless while narrowing their lead to just one.

The Bison continued their scoring assault until they found themselves with a 38-31 lead. Army crawled back later in the game, but the Bison made sure to keep the score securely in their favor.

“I think the fact that we were still in a pretty close game and had come back from deficits larger than this one really helped us to dig our way out of a hole,” Rachel Voss ’13 said.

Shelby Romine ’14 helped anchor the Bison offense as she drained 15 points, leading all scorers. Cosima Higham ’11 was also dynamic, scoring 10 points and pulling down 13 rebounds for an impressive double-double.

The Bison will next be in action in the Patriot League Tournament and will play their first game on March 5 at home.

“To bring home the Patriot League Tournament Championship, we are going to have to continue to stay focused, keep getting better each day, and take it game by game,” Voss said.
