CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Colgate picked up a road victory on Saturday afternoon, ensuring Patriot League women's basketball teams a 1-1 mark on the day.
Lauryn Kobiela scored 15 points to pace three Raiders in double figures in Saturday's 68-61 victory at Robert Morris. Colgate (4-5) won its third straight game for the first time since Dec. 2010, while also winning its first game of the 2013-14 campaign after trailing at the break. Mariah Jones chipped in 12 points, and Randyll Butler logged a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double in 28 minutes off the bench. The Colonials took a 34-28 halftime lead thanks to six straight points over the final 2:21 of the first half. Robert Morris led by as many as nine early in the second before Carole Harris' two free throws tied the game at 46-all midway through the second. The Colonials edged back in front before Missy Repoli's trey with 6:25 left put the Raiders up 55-53. It came during the early stages of a 10-0 run for Colgate, which outscored RMU 22-10 over the game's last 8:47.
Sarah Pope scored a career-high 19 points on 6-of-12 from the 3-point line, but Boston University (3-8) dropped a 76-65 loss at Case Gym on Saturday. Melissa Gallo added 12 points and Danielle Callahan chipped in 10. Rashidat Agboola hauled down a team-high eight rebounds. BU led 37-31 with 5:32 left in the first but the Red Foxes whittled it down to a 38-36 game at halftime. Marist opened the second on a 16-3 run to move in front 52-41 with 13:24 on the clock. Hope sank one of her six 3s and Agboola added a layup for a 5-0 BU spurt that cut the deficit to single digits with under six minutes left, but Marist surged with a 12-4 run over the next five and a half minutes to eliminate any chance of a Terrier rally. Marist won the battle inside, with a 46-29 edge on the glass and a 28-14 advantage in points in the paint.
The next action for any League teams is on Monday when American hosts Mount St. Mary's at 7 p.m. on Patriot League Network.
