Murray Helps Women's Basketball Halt Skid at Lafayette
The Army West Point women's basketball got a much-needed 64-40 road victory at Lafayette to snap a five-game losing skid on Wednesday night. Kate Murray led the way for the Black Knights with 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting. She also added five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in the victory. Madison Hovren recorded a double-double with 13 points and 18 boards, while Morgann Yancey had 12 points and was 3-of-5 from distance in the win. Hovren tied Army's all-time record for career double-doubles with her 49th and she is even with Katie Macfarlane '04 for the most in Black Knights history. Army held Lafayette to 40 points and the Leopards didn't have a player reach double digits as Drew Freeland had a team-high nine points. Natalie Kucowski, Lafayette's main threat, was 3-of-24 from the field. She did have 19 rebounds and four blocks in the losing effort. Army started out shooting the ball really well through the first quarter at 53 percent and Yancey led all scorers with eight points on 3-of-3 shooting, including a pair of 3-pointers. The Black Knights opened the game on a 15-5 scoring run and ended up with a 20-10 lead after one.
