CASTINE, ME – The Owls Women's Basketball team (0-3) would fall in the consolation game of the Pepsi Mariner Classic. Rensselaer (2-1) would run away with the contest by a final score of 88-46.
Some hot shooting by the Engineers and the Owls surrendering 22 offensive rebounds would contribute to the large deficit. RPI would win the overall rebounding statistic 48-23 while forcing 27 turnovers.
UMPI would be led by Sydney Churchill (SR, Fort Fairfield, ME) with 15 points and four rebounds. Jessy Dickison (JR, Houlton, ME) would grab seven rebounds while scoring four points and would be selected to the All-Tournament Team.
