Women's Basketball Fires Up For 74-64 Win Over Norwich

BOSTON, Mass. – With four Lions putting up double-digits in points the Emerson Women's Basketball Team rolled to a 74-64 win over the visiting Norwich Cadets Tuesday night. With the win the Lions improve to 6-9 on the year and 2-2 in conference play while the Cadets drop to 7-9 overall and 1-2 in the GNAC.

The first half saw the Lions come out strong with Shannon Norton coming out to drop nine on Norwich while Janissa Delzo came off the bench to lead the Lions with 10 of her own.

The Lions were absolutely dominant in the paint as well, putting in 20, while scrapping hard on rebounds with 11 points off of second chances in the half. The Cadets stayed in the game though, led by Aliah Curry's 16 points in the half as Emerson went into the break with a 41-34 lead.

The second half saw the arrival of Catherine Cloutier who dropped 12 points in the half to lead the floor, going 3-for-5 from the floor and 6-for-8 from the free throw line.

The Lions lurked dangerously in foul trouble with four players collecting for fouls each to give Norwich the opportunity to stay in the game as the Cadets put up 19 points from the free throw line on the night. The defense stepped up their play as well in the half, holding Aliah Curry to only eight points en route to the 74-64 win.

The Lions roll on in their GNAC season this Saturday as they travel to Albertus Magnus on Saturday for a 1 p.m. tip-off against the Falcons.
