    ‘When Ifirst came back my knee was shaky, but the more I play on it, it keeps gettingstronger and stronger each game. Its still weak though,’ LoParrino said.

    She has beenplaying very well in recent games but she felt differently about it

    ‘The lasttwo games I wasn’t confident coming out. The Coach said you just have to letthe offense come to you. You cant really force it. I was handling the ballpretty well but my offense game I was forcing shots trying to get themit,’ LoParrino said.

    LoParrino hadscored just nine points and got three rebounds during the game againstNortheastern.

    ‘ I’mreally a point guard, I’m not the scorer like Ingram is. I got nine points thenthat’s great for me,’ said LoParrino.

    Coming up theSeawolves are playing some of the best teams in the American east such asVermont, Maine, and Boston.

    ‘Maine isreally good. We haven’t faced Vermont. But they are also pretty good,’said LoParrino.

    The Seawolvesare on the road for their next two games against Vermont on Saturday Feb 8 andBoston University on Wednesday Feb 12.
