Women's basketball routs Albany College of Pharmacy 63-34
The Hamilton College Continentals cruised to a 63-34 non-conference win over the Albany College of Pharmacy Panthers at Hamilton's Margaret Bundy Scott Field House on Tuesday night.
The 29-point win was the biggest of the season for the Continentals (9-10 overall). The Panthers were limited to just four first-half baskets. The 34 points and 21.1 field-goal percentage were both season-low figures for a Hamilton opponent.
Dani Feigin ’14 scored 17 points and Samantha Graber ’16 added 16 to pace Hamilton’s balanced attack as nobody played more than 26 minutes. Graber also led all players with 11 rebounds. The double-double was her fifth of the season and third in the past five games.
Carly Gruenberg ’16 and Adrianna Pulford ’15 pulled down seven rebounds apiece and helped Hamilton to a season-best 49-31 rebounding advantage. All 13 players that dressed for the Continentals appeared for at least four minutes.
Alexa Schooley ’15 led the Panthers, who lost for the third time in four games, with 10 points and nine rebounds. Kelsey Johnson ’14 added nine points for the Panthers (15-5).
The Continentals took control early, holding the Panthers scoreless from the floor for a 12-minute span. During that stretch the Panthers missed 15 consecutive shots on their way to a 30-13 halftime deficit.
Hamilton returns to NESCAC action on Friday, Feb. 7, with a 6 p.m. game at home against conference-leading and nationally ranked No. 5 Tufts University. The Panthers host Davis on Thursday at 6 p.m.
