CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - The offenses were working as Lehigh and Navy posted double-digit victories on Tuesday night.
Five players reached double figures to contribute to the Mountain Hawks' second-highest offensive output in program history in Tuesday night's 95-67 win at home over Mount St. Mary's. Kerry Kinek scored a game-high 18 points with nine rebounds, Katie O'Reilly added 17 and Elizabeth Sharlow had a 15-point, 12-rebound double-double off the bench to pace Lehigh (3-1). The Mountain Hawks, who never trailed, shot 46.9 percent in the first half to take a 43-33 lead at the break and hit on 57 percent of their tries in the second to pull away.
Kara Pollinger tallied a game-high 21 points, Jade Geif chipped in 16 and Alix Membreno 14 as Navy won 70-51 at St. Peter's. Pollinger was 7 of 12 from the floor and was responsible for five of her team's nine total treys in the game. Like Lehigh, the Mids (3-1) led by double digits at the half (33-22) and shot nearly 58 percent in the second to put the game out of reach. Navy also outrebounded the Peahens 39-22.
Boston University dropped to 1-3 after a 78-68 setback to Yale at Case Gym on Tuesday night. Rashidat Agboola and Danielle Callahan both led the Terriers with 13 points, while Melissa Gallo chipped in 12 off the bench and Courtney Latham had 11. BU shot 32 percent in the first and trailed 35-27 at the intermission. The Terriers came within five at the 15:05 mark of the second, but the Bulldogs used a 19-4 run over the next six minutes to take a 62-42 lead. BU cut the deficit to seven with 1:23 left but Yale, which scored 22 points off 19 Terrier turnovers, iced the game at the line.
