Connecticut College junior Kim Horne (Newport, N.H.) netted 11 points with eight rebounds to lead the Camels. Horne was 5-for-7 from the field in 35 minutes of action. Jenn Shinall (Redding, Conn.), who had defeated WESTCONN with a buzzer beater in last season´s meeting at Luce Field House, netted nine points and pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds for the Camels.
Kacie Quick (Winchester, Mass.) contributed nine points in a 4-for-6 shooting performance. The Camels enjoyed a 44-to-28 advantage on the backboards but were limited to just seven field goals in the second half.
