Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

Form held on Saturday afternoon as all 3 home teams, each with the better record that there opponent won.  A couple of weird 2nd quarter scoring results.  Fordham closed within 1/2 game of LaSalle in conference.

VCU (H, 10-2) 54, St Bonaventure (1-11) 40.   Timaya Lewis-Eutsey was the only Ram in double figures with 11 points.  Dani Haskell was the game's only other double figure scorer with 17.  VCU outscored the Bonnies 8 - 2 in the second quarter.  Rans shot 4 - 9.  Bonnies were 1 - 15.  Halftime score was still just 26 - 19.  

Duquense (H, 10-5) 57, LaSalle (4-8) 52.  Reserve Precious Johnson led the Dukes with 15 points and.11 rebounds.  Naelie Bernard scored 13.  Megan McConnell was 9/11.  Jolene Armendiaz was 15/10 for the Explorers.  

Fordham (H,  4-9) 64, UMass (1-12) 50.  Emy Hayford had 17 for the Rams and Taylor Donaldson was 15/10.  Kristen Williams scored 17 for the Minutewomen, but she had to get lukewarm late to get there.  After an 18 - 11 first quarter Fordham won the second by 20 - 6.  Cold shooting by UMass through out the first three quarters, .  They did score 24 in the fourth to close almost within single digits and force Fordham to put its starters back I(.  Final score was not indicative of Fordham's domination.  Lead got to 30 at one point.

Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

After Wednesday's action, Richmond and St Joe's sit on top of the A10 with 12-1 records,.  Duquense moved into 3rd place at 11-3 on the strength of its 4 game winning streak.    VCU and George Mason are 1/2 game behind the Dukes at 10-3.  GW is ahead of the two 1 win teams and is 1 win shy of Fordham, LaSalle and Dayton.  And oh those second quarter blues for a couple of teams, but not GW last night

GW  (H,3-10) 71, LaSalle (4-9) 49

URI (8-6) 86, UMass (H,1-13) 69.  Maye Toure had 22 points and 9 rebounds, shooting 9-14 FG and showing a nice touch on short range jumpers.  Although UMass' lack of height didn't present much of a challenge.  Sophie Phillips scored 15 and Inez Debroisse had 14, among 5 Rams in double figures  URI won the rebound battle 40-31.  Rhode Island shot 34 - 63 FG.  UMass lost the second quarter 24 -14 but at least they scored in double digits.  Alexis Rose scored 13, most of them in early action and had 8 assists.  Kristen Williams scored 15 and followed her recent pattern of raking up the points in the 4th quarter.  UMass gave its FR bigs a good workout getting them the ball inside and to go up against the much more experienced and more physical  Toure and 6'5" Tenin Megassa.  Chinenye Odenigbou scored 10 points on 5 -10 shooting before fouling out in the last minute.  Starter Bre Bellamy went down with an ankle injury and was on crutches in the second half.  She was the 4th of the 6 transfers to be unavailable, leaving Rose and Tori Hyduke, who hasn't
scored in 3 games.

Richmond (12-1) 65, VCU (H,10-3) 58,  Spiders trailed 41-35 going in to the 4th quarter.  Grace Townsend led Richmond with 23 points.  She was 11-11FT and the Spiders were 20-20.  Addie Budnick scored 15 and Maggie Doogan was 13/7.  Both of them had 3 blocks.  Sarah Te-Bisau led the Rams with 25.  Timaya Lewis-Eutsey had 11. MyKel Parham had 12 rebounds.
Duquense (11-3) 66, St Bonaventure (H, 1-12) 50.  Second quarter was 25 - 7 in favor of the Dukes.  Megan McConnell had a line of 20 points, 13 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals.  The other 4 starters scored a combined 12 points.  Reserve Precious Johnson kept up her recent scoring surge with 12 pints and Jenni Kiaku had 10.  Nedechka Laccen had 12 for the Bonnies.

St Jpsephs (H, 12-1) 73, Dayton (4-10( 47.  Tayla Brugler had 20 (10-16 FG) for the Hawks and Laura Ziegler scored 19 (9-13).  Ivy Wolf led the Flyers with 19/7.

St Louis (H,6-9) 79, Loyola Chicago (6-8) 68.  St Louis won second quarter 27-11.  Brooklyn Gray had 22 for the Billikens and Peyton Kennedy had 16.  Alyssa Fisher scored 23 for the Ramblers.  Sitori Tanin was 16/11.

Davidson (H, 8-5) 75, George Mason (11-3) 67,  Wildcats won 4th in a row,  Earlier they lost a couple of conference home games.  Davidson won 2nd quarter 21-4., for a 34-26 halftime lead.  Already missing Suzi-Rose Deegan (out for the season) and Charise Dunn, who only played 4 minutes in last game, Wildcats' depth was tested more as Millie Prior had 5 fouls in 16 minutes.   Elle Sutphin came off the bench to play 31 minutes and scored 24 points (11-18 FG) and pull down 7 rebounds.  Mallorie Haines scored 15,  Maddie Plank had 6 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists.  

As xAC noted Sonia Smith and Zahirah Walton did not play for the Patriots .  Smith is a starting guard and candidate for my All Conference team.  Walton (11.6 ppg) is a 5 time Rookie of the Week selection.  Ta'Viyanna Habib had an 18/10 games for the Patriots.  Taylor Jameson, back in a starting role, scored 15 and Kennedy Harris had 14,

Old friend Xavier was thumped by UConn 86-40 in Cincinnati.  Huskies went on a 32-0 run spanning the first and second quarters and led 50-13 at the half.  Xavier is 1-21, 0-13 for the season with its win over SIUE.  Where are Amy and Reeta when you need them?  And how much does that question date me?

Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

A lot to unpack from the 7 game weekend.  St Joe's and Richmond remain tied at 13 - 1.  Just a reminder, since I needed one:  Richmond beat St Joe's  on the road. in their only match up,. Richmond lost at Duquense.  Dukes still have to visit Richmond.  Duquense still sits in 3rd at 12 -3, with a 17-9 overall record.  George Mason became the 4th conference team with 20 overall wins.  Rhode Island moved into 6th place with its win over Davidson.  Fordham won its third in a row to reach  5 wins.  Dayton and LaSalle are a game ahead of GW.

Sunday's games

St Joseph's (13-1) 60, LaSalle (H, 4-10) 29.  LaSalle led 6-4 after 1st quarter.  Hawks won second half 41-9.  Explorers were 0-12 FG in a 3 point 4th.  Makayla Miller (13 points) had 3 FT for all their points in the 4th.  For St Joes', Tayla Brugler had 16, Chloe Welch 13, and Mackenzie Smith 9.  Laura  Ziegler had 10 rebounds with her 8 points.  

Fordham (5-9) 70, St Bonaventure (1-13) 48.  Reserve Taya Davis scored 25 points for the Rams on 9-13 FG.  Taylor Donaldson and Emy Hayford had 12 points apiece.  Peyton Fields and Isabellah Middleton each scored 15 for the Bonnies, who shot 3 -30 from beyond the arc.  Middleton had 10 rebounds.


George Mason (h, 11-3) 60, GW (3-11) 57

Duquense (12-3) 82. St Louis (H, 6-8) 65.  There were 5 double figure scorers for the Dukes and the next 3 scored at least 6. in a balanced attack.   Naelie Bernard led the way with 13 (8 rebounds), followed by 12 each by Tess Myers, Precious Johnson and Ayanna Townsend.  Kyla McMakin had 24 for the Billikens.  

Richmond (H, 13-1) 75, Loyola Chicago (6-9) 71.  Maggie Doogan, off the bench, had a 20/8 night in 31 minutes.  It was Senior Night and Kylee Lewandowski made her first start and had 6 points, 2-2 from beyond the arc,  in 14 minutes.  Grace Townsnd had 17 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists.  For the Ramblers, Sam Galanapoulous had 21 and Alyssa Fuller scored 14.

URI (H, 9-6) 61, Davidson (8-6) 49.  Sophie Phillips and Dee Dee Davis each scored 17 for the Rams with Davis adding 12 rebounds.  Maye Toure had a 16/9 game.  Ines Dubroise had 10 assists.  Katie Donovan led the Wlldcats with 16 and Elle Sutphin had 11.  Millie Prior had 11 rebounds.  Charlese Dunn did not play.

VCU (11-3) 63, UMass (H, 1 - 14) 49.  Minuutewomen only had 8 players available, and 1 was a walk on who played the last minute.  Stefanie Kulesza and Kristen Williams played the full 40 minutes.  As seems to happen often to UMass, even in Verdi's time. an unexpected  player hurts them from beyond the  arc.  Reserve Grace Hutson (2.9 peg) had a career high of 16 points, inducing 4 - 8 from beyond the arc.  Sarah Te-Bisau and Mary-Anna Ansara each scored 10.    

With usual starter Bre Bellamy injured and Alexsia Rose also not playing, UMass started both FR bigs and Tori Hyduke, who all acquitted themselves well.  Some of the best rebounding  of the season.  Stefanie Kulesza had 13 points and 4 steals -  3 in a 45 second sequence, all in the midcourt.  (She had 8 steals against Fordham last Saturday.)  For the bigs, Chineye Odenigbo scored 10 points and had 4 rebounds, while Lilly Tauleulei  was 7/10.  Hyduke had 9 points,  including 7 in the first half.  Kristen Williams had 10 points on 3-17 FG, 1 - 10 from beyond the arc.  She was again scoreless in the first half.  
It was Senior Night in Amherst.  Bellamy was one of the two celebrated.  She has a degree from William and Mary and is earning a Foundations of Management certificate, which is apparently a graduate level on-line course, transferable to other graduate level programs.  Tori Hyduke had a BS in Design and Merchandising  Drexel and is also earning a Foundations of Management certificate.    This may seem off topic but I've often wondered about the courses/programs that GR players get involved in.

It was mentioned that Hyduke has scored over 500 points in her career.  I believe she had 270 in her RS FR year ar GW,  Then 187 at Drexel, if my math is correct.  And currently 115 at UMass. making it 572 and counting.  Getting deep in the weeds here.  Good night.

Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

Richmond stands alone at the top of the A-10 as St Joe's lost at VCU.  Both VCU and George Mason needed second half rallies for their wins, to stay tied with 3 losses.  

Davidson forfeited its game due to non Covid related issues.  Wildcats take the loss to drop to 8-7 in conference. .  One story said that Dayton would get a "no-contest" but standings show them credited with the win for a 5-10 record.  Davidson is expected to play on Saturday.  Flyers quickly scheduled a home game against Miami University Hamilton and won 112 -45 with mostly bench players.  Opponent may not even be an NCAA school.

Duquense (H, 13-3) 79, GW (3-12) 69

Richmond (H,14-1) 74, LaSalle (4-11) 54.  Reserve Rachel Ullstrom had 20 points for the Spiders.  Maggie Doogan scored 13.  Grace Townsend had 12 points. with 6 assists.  Addie Budnick had 9 rebounds.  Nicole Melious was 12/8 for the Explorers.

George Mason (12-3) 57, St Bonaventure (H, 1-14) 53.   Ti'Vaynna Habib had 19 points and 7 rebounds.  Sonia Smith returned with 12 points.  Zahirah Walton also returned and had 6 rebounds and 5 blocks, only 2 points.  Isabellah Middleton had a 13/8 game for the Bonnies.  

Fordham (H, 6-9) 79, St Louis (6-9) 64.  Rams are on a 4 game winning streak and may become the proverbial team "no one wants to play" in the tournament.  Emy Hayford scored 22 while Taylor Donaldson had 21.  Peyton Kennedy scored 24 points and had 7 rebounds.  Julia Martinez had 9 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals for the Billikens..

Loyola Chicago (H, 7-9) 64, UMass (1-15) 52. Sitori Tenin led the Ramblers with 18 points and 7 rebounds. Ali Berg scored 16.  Loyola had 14 offensive rebounds.  UMass may have only had 7 players available, as I'm not sure the walk-on could have played.  Stefanie Kulesza had 14 points, 5 rebounds, 1 block and 2 steals.  She made it to the end of the game with 4 fouls. Kristen Williams broke her first half scoring drought with 5 first quarter points and ended with 11.  She played 40 minutes.  Tori Hyduke played well, with 9 points (4-10 FG), 5 rebounds, 5 assists (to 3 turnovers) and a steal, in 37 minutes.

Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

On Sunday, St Louis and Loyola Chicago solidified their positions in the middle of the pack of the standings.

St Louis (H, 7-9) 83,  St Bonaventure (1-15) 62.  Kyla McMakin led the Billikens with 30 points, on 13-22 FG.  Peyton Kennedy scored 23.  Julia Martinez, off the bench, scored 9 on perfect 3-3 FG and 3-3 FT, along with 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals.  Isabellah Middleton led the Bonnies with 24 points. Taylor Napper scored 16 on 8-8 FG.

Loyola Chicago (H, 8-8) 64,  Dayton (5-11) 61.  Sam Galanopoulous score 16 for the Ramblers.  Alyssa Fisher had 13.  Arianna Smith,  off the bench, had her 11th double double for the Flyers, 14/13.  Alyssa Jones added 10.

Besides the two way tie at the top of the standings, there's a tie for third  between George Mason, VCU and Duquense at 13-3.   The Dukes have the toughest remaining schedule, at Richmond and home to St Joe's.  George Mason visits VCU in their final game. 

GW is tied with LaSalle for the 12th spot at 4-12, a game behind Dayton.  GW would play Lasalle in the 12 - 13 game unless they can catch Dayton.  And unless Davidson can't play due to health issues.

Re: Other Games Thread, 2023 - 2024

On the last day of the regular season, Richmond clinched first place, LaSalle surprised host Fordham with a score out of whack with their average and St Louis played a tune up, in place of their canceled game with Davidson.  It was their Senior Night.  Opponent was Knox College, 19-8, which had ended its season on Feb 24 in a second round loss in the Midwest Conference tournament.  The D3 team, out of Illinois, has a cool nickname of Prairie Fire.
