Women's Basketball Downs Smith, 72-47
, Feb. 10, 2004 – Senior guard Kelly McOmber (Woodbury, Conn.)
scored a game-high 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds as Springfield College beat Smith, 72-47, in a New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women’s basketball game tonight at Ainsworth Gym.
With the win, SC improves to 14-8 overall and 8-2 in the NEWMAC while Smith falls to 9-11 and 6-4 in the conference.
The Pride took control in the first half with a couple of major runs. At 10:56, a McOmber jumper started a 13-0 SC run which spanned 5:03. The Pride finished with a 7-0 run to give them a 42-19 lead at intermission.
