Emmanuel 67, Bates 62
POOR SHOOTING DOOMS BOBCATS AGAINST EMMANUEL, 67-62
BOSTON, Mass. -- Despite getting double-doubles from two different players, the Bates College women's basketball team was unable to overcome 23 percent shooting from the floor in the second half as the Bobcats (4-1) saw their four-game winning streak at the hand of Emmanuel College (6-0) by a score of 67-62.
The game was a tale of two halves for Bates. The Bobcats outscored Emmanuel, 37-26, in the first frame, while hitting 15 of 38 shots (39.5 percent) and allowing the Saints just 10 of 34 (29.4 percent). Emmanuel's defense clamped down in the seconfd half, however, allowing Bates a paltry nine of 39 from the floor, including 0-7 from 3-point range, while improving themselves to 15 of 31 (48.4 percent), the highest percentage Bates has allowed in a half this season.
The Bobcats were led by junior Katy Dutille (Lebanon, N.H.), who had 15 points and 10 rebounds, while senior forward Emily King (Lebanon, N.H.) had 11 points and a game-high 11 boards. The Bobcats forced 22 turnovers, but committed 21 of their own. Emmanuel was led by Vickie Shalian, who had a game-high 18 points, and Brianne Boganno, who had 17 points and 10 boards.
The Bobcats wrap up the first semester a week from today at home against St. Joseph's College
