Rhode Island College’s Women’s Basketball team has been on a remarkable unbeaten run. The Anchorwomen are now 18-0 on the season and have shown no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
Their recent wins have come in dominating fashion. In the Anchorwomen’s last five games, they have outscored their opponents by a score of 400-181. With incredible defense and a nearly unstoppable offense, the Anchorwomen look prime to make a similar run in the playoffs like they did last season.
Their most recent win came against Vermont State University Castleton. In this game, the Anchorwomen got off to quite the hot start. After the Spartans got the first bucket to take a 2-0 lead, it was essentially all Anchorwomen from that moment forward. The Anchorwomen even ended the first quarter in dominating fashion. They had nearly a 20 point lead by just the end of the first quarter as they took a 27-9 lead going into the second quarter.
The Anchorwomen continued to put the pressure on the Spartans in the second quarter. The lead expanded to 47-9 with 3:30 left in the half. This was a 20 point run the Anchorwomen went on. The Spartan were getting dominated. The score ended up being 55-17 going into halftime.
The game was far out of reach for the Spartans. A 38 point deficit is almost always an impossible task to overcome. The Anchorwomen were able to play with such a commanding lead for the rest of the game. At the end of the third quarter, the Anchorwomen had a 73-33 lead.
With a 40 point lead in the fourth quarter, the Anchorwomen were able to ride the lead and win by a dominating score of 92-42 over the Spartans. A fifty point victory just shows how truly good this Anchorwomen team is.
Izabelle Booth was the team's leading scorer with 18 points in this game. Booth has been an incredible player for the Anchorwomen this year. The team also had four other players achieve double digit points. Those four players were Sophia Guerrier, Angelina Nardolillo, Neleesha Meunier and Maggie Schwab.
In upcoming action, the Anchorwomen look to stay undefeated and expand their unbeaten streak to 19 at home on Wednesday against University of Southern Maine.
