RENSSELAER IMPROVES TO 12-0 - Hamilton College


The Rensselaer women's basketball team (3-6, 3-5 UCAA) closed out the game with a 25-5 run, defeating Hamilton College, 59-37. The Engineers led by a point (20-19) at halftime and with 8:45 remaining the game was tied at 32, but freshman Shannon Pratt scored three consecutive times down the court in leading Rensselaer to their twelfth victory in as many games.

Freshman Sonializ Torres added 13 points and seven rebounds for Rensselaer, and the stingy Engineer defense forced 31 Hamilton turnovers. Senior Ashley Merriman was strong in the paint for Hamilton with 13 points and 18 rebounds, 13 of which she grabbed in the first half.

The Continentals return to action tomorrow afternoon (2 p.m.) against Union.
