SEAHAWK WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RESULTS
University of New England 65, Salve Regina 43
Rodgers Rec. Ctr. - Newport, R.I.
Saturday, January 6, 2018

Summary
NEWPORT, R.I. - Seniors Olivia Shaw (Saco, Maine) and Sam MacDonald (Lebanon, N.H.) scored 19 and 18 points, respectively, to lead visiting University of New England over Salve Regina University, 65-43, in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) women's basketball action at the Rodgers Recreation Center.

Series and Streaks
The Nor'easters lead the all-time series, 20-11, and have won the last 13 meetings. University of New England has held Salve Regina under 50 points in seven of the last eight meetings between the two schools.

Three Stars of the Game

  1. Nor'easter senior Sam MacDonald (Lebanon, N.H.) scored 18 points on seven of 12 from the floor including two 3-pointers; she was perfect (2-for-2) from the free-throw line while adding eight rebounds.
  2. Seahawk senior Ally Esielionis (Shirley, Mass.) had 17 points, five rebounds, and two blocked shots. 
  3. Nor'easter senior Olivia Shaw (Saco, Maine) led all players with 19 points while grabbing tem-high nine rebounds.

Turning Point
Salve Regina tied the score at 14-14 on a 3-pointer from freshman Mary Rorke (Norton, Mass.) with 7:53 remaining in the second quarter. The Nor'easters then went on a 12-1 run over 4:48, capped by a 3-pointer from freshman Elyssa Nicholas (Southborough, Mass.). Salve Regina got no closer than six points (29-23) after Esielionis' jumper to start the second-half scoring.

Quotes
"The turnovers (21) were disappointing, but I was more disappointed with missed layups. And when I say 'layups,' these were open opportunities ... not being defended. We missed 18, that's 36 points." - Salve Regina head coach Cori Hughes

Next Up
Salve Regina (6-5, 3-2 CCC) plays its sixth consecutive game at home when it hosts Roger Williams University on Tuesday at the Rodgers Recreation Center (5 p.m.). The University of New England (8-2, 4-0 CCC) will travel to Quincy, Mass., to face Eastern Nazarene College in a CCC meeting on Tuesday (5:30 p.m.)
