Meghan Biondolillo Box Score

Worcester, Mass. - February 2, 2013 - The Springfield College women's basketball team could not overcome some early shooting woes as it was defeated by WPI, 57-42, in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) play on Saturday.

WPI improves to 12-8 overall and is now 8-6 in league action. The Engineers sit alone in fourth place in the 10-team conference and have a three-game lead over the three teams that are tied for the sixth and final NEWMAC Tournament bid. Springfield dips to 3-17 on the season and 1-13 in NEWMAC play.

Theresa Logan keyed a 10-0 WPI run with eight points as the Engineers broke a 2-2 deadlock and grabbed a lead it would not relinquish. The Crimson and Gray used a stingy defense to open up an 18-point halftime advantage (32-14), holding the Pride to just five made field goals in the opening 20 minutes.

Springfield clawed back in the second half and drew as close as eight points twice, with the last time at 46-38 on a Emily Gins layup with just under five minutes left but the Engineers canned 8-of-10 free throws in the final minute to secure the victory.

Logan ended with 12 points and a season-best 14 rebounds. Kelly Morgan also contributed 12 points, including four 3-pointers, which equaled her career-high. Dani Davis stuffed the stat sheet with 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a pair of steals. Siena Mamayek provided a boost off the bench with eight points and six rebounds while Rachel Pineda doled out a game-high five assists.

Meghan Biondolillo led the Springfield charge with nine points and four rebounds while Tamara Tribble had a solid all-around game with seven points and eight rebounds. Gins provided a team-best 11 rebounds to go along with six rebounds while Jessie Klauer paced the Pride with four assists.

WPI hits the road on Wednesday, traveling to Mount Holyoke while Springfield returns home to face Coast Guard the same evening. Both contests start at 7pm.
