With another win for the Women’s Basketball team, they are now 5-0 in the year with no signs of slowing down. The latest team to challenge the Anchorwomen were the Plymouth State Panthers but ultimately were not able to rise to the occasion. When it was all said and done, the Anchorwomen handled business and won 47-3.
Sophia Guerrier, per usual, played to a level she could be content with. Her 13 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals showed impact on the game at both ends of the floor. While the scoring slowed down towards the end of the first quarter, a 12-4 run by the Anchor Women going into halftime was something the Panthers would not come back from. During the rest of the game, the lead was nothing lower than 10 points and was as high as 16.
Guard Antonia Corsenetti contributed eight points on two three pointers to go with her three assists. Marina Rufo was given an opportunity to play and delivered. She had 10 rebounds on the night for the team. Neleesha Meunier also grabbed 10 rebounds herself. With the absence of Willcia McBorrough, two players stepped up and allowed for the team to keep attacking the glass. The Anchorwomen yet again dominated the rebound battle 54-29. As the season progresses, everyone on the roster has had their moments when they have helped the team remain unbeaten so far.
Although they struggled with the three pointer shooting 4-15, they adjusted sooner and were not relying on it as much. The 26 points in the paint and 13 free throw attempts are proof of how aggressive the Anchorwomen played all game. Overall the game was very balanced, and everyone on the roster played at least seven minutes. Even with a start out with an injury, this group of players demonstrated their dependability and resilience.
The Anchorwomen are headed out to Portland to face off against the University of Southern Maine. The Southern Maine Huskies have yet to play on the year and will play the Anchor Woman twice in a row. The first meeting being February 17 and the following one being February 24.
