Hamilton College had three players reach double figures in scoring as the visiting Continentals defeated Morrisville State College 76-43 in a non-league game at STUAC Gymnasium on Nov. 24.

Sowinski chipped in five assists and seven boards. Cate Schafer ‘10 scored 15 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Reisa Asimovic ‘11 dished out a career-high nine assists.

Hamilton opened the second half with an 18-3 run, featuring seven points from Sowinski and four from Madie Harlem ’13 (four steals). The run put the Continentals ahead 58-30. They stretched their lead to as many as 35 points four times late in the second half.
