Women’s basketball: After a tough four game road trip the Terriers return home where they look to right the ship against the St. Francis University Red Flash.
16-9 overall on the season, 7-7 in conference play, a 9-1 record at home while falling two games short of a .500 road record at 6-8. This is the campaign for the St. Francis Women’s Terriers who are enjoying one of their best seasons in quite some time. Tomorrow afternoon, the Terriers will return home to host the first of the final four games of the regular season against Saint Francis University Red Flash at 2pm.
This is the beginning to the end and with the bulk of the season already complete, the Terriers will look to finish strong heading into the postseason.
The Terriers return home after an unsuccessful four-game road trip dropping three games to the likes of Robert Morris University 101-95 in double overtime, Wagner College, 62-53 and Sacred Heart University, 77-53, their lone win coming against Saint Francis University 90-76.
With the Terriers having experienced success against this particular team in their last road trip, they have the blueprint to achieve victory once again, this time providing the welcome mat at home.
In the Terriers 90-76 win over SFU, the Terriers shot 48% from behind the arc connecting on 12 of 25 attempts. Guard Leah Fechko and Forward Jaymee Veney both produced double-double performances scoring 23 points along with 10 rebounds and 16 points and 10 rebounds respectively.
Junior Guard Eilidh Simpson accumulated a career high 27 points with 18 points coming within the first half, setting the tone for the rest of the game.
The production of Fechko and Veney served as the icing on the cake.
SFU’s own Alli Williams and Alexa Hayward led all scorers compiling 31 points and 22 respectively.
You can expect a stronger defensive output in the upcoming matchup due to the offensive explosion that not only the Terriers generated but the Red Flash as well.
Following this game, the Terriers will host the next three as Robert Morris University, Bryant University and LIU-Brooklyn will all look to spoil a strong finish for the Terriers.
