WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

New Hampshire 51, Maine 47

DURHAM, N.H. — Amy Simpson hit two big shots down the stretch as the University of New Hampshire fended off a rally by UMaine on its way to a 51-47 America East women’s basketball victory Tuesday night at Lundholm Gymnasium. The Wildcats held the Black Bears scoreless for a span of six minutes, 10 seconds early in the second half and went on to build an 11-point advantage that it would never relinquish. Coach Cindy Blodgett’s UMaine squad (2-12) made a determined comeback try but still fell for the eighth consecutive game. Kristin Baker of Bingham led the Bears with 11 points, while Brittany Boser provided 10 points and seven rebounds. Freshman Samantha Wheeler added 10 points and good defense. Candace Williams paced UNH (3-11) with a game-high 18 points and Simpson finished with 17, including five 3-pointers. UMaine was without sophomore forward Tanna Ross of Newburgh, who missed her second straight game with an undisclosed leg injury. It was 26-23 at intermission, with the Bears riding their determined rebounding effort to the slim advantage. UMaine outrebounded UNH 28-19, including 12 offensive boards, which enabled them to score 11 second-chance points. That was badly needed as the Bears shot only 28 percent from the field. The Wildcats shot only slightly better from the floor (29 percent) and committed more turnovers (11) than the Bears (9). Both teams relied almost exclusively on man-to-man defense and UMaine’s intensity paid off as it limited high-percentage scoring chances by UNH and afforded limited offensive rebounds. Baker played only 12 minutes, but led the Bears with nine points in the half. Colleen Kilmurray and Jasmine Rush each grabbed five rebounds. Williams was the catalyst for the Wildcats, providing 10 points and three rebounds.

Bowdoin 78, UM-Farmington 41

At Farmington, Sabrina Cote scored 17 points as Bowdoin College of Brunswick defeated the University of Maine at Farmington. Ashley Busque led the Beavers with 11 points.
