Women’s Hoops Takes On Second Seeded Vermont Tuesday

With the season quickly coming to a close, the women’s basketball team has the privilege of playing its last two games in the warm confines of Pritchard Gymnasium.

The Seawolves look to shake up rankings right before the start of the postseason with a win against a tough Catamount team, that will visit Tuesday.

The last time the two teams went head to head, the Seawolves traveled up to Vermont in late January.

The cold outside must have found a way into Patrick Gym, chilling the team in red.

The Seawolves shot only 35 percent from the field and failed to cash in from long distance, going 0-for-8 from three-point territory. On the other hand, the Catamounts shot 46 percent from the floor and built a comfortable lead, eventually winning by a lopsided 67-45 margin.

The Seawolves are hoping for a different outcome this time around.

They come into the matchup after falling to the Boston University Terriers, despite junior forward Kirsten Jeter (Elmont, NY.) reaching a 1,000 career-point milestone.

Vermont comes into the game after routing UMBC on Sunday, extending their winning streak to six games.

The Seawolves will try to end the streak and build momentum heading into the conference championship tournament, which kicks off in early March.

Tip off for Tuesday night’s game is slated for 7 p.m.
