ST. LAWRENCE HOLDS OFF HAMILTON
St. Lawrence extended their lead to seven, powered by the strong play of Stender and senior Kristen Buhl (15 points, 12 rebounds), but Hamilton (3-9, 37 UCAA) hung tough to take a one-point lead with 7:24 to play. Each team traded leads, but St. Lawrence pulled away after Crystal Stone made two key layups with three minutes left to play.
Hamilton was led offensively by freshman Julie Gennuso who scored 16 points and passed for four assists, while sophomore Kelly McKeown added 12 points and four assists.
Hamilton returns to action Friday, Jan. 30, at Bates College.
