Panthers run winning streak to seven
QUINCY, Mass. - Plymouth State College's women's basketball team ran its winning streak to seven games Thursday night with an 88-58 non-conference victory at Eastern Nazarene College.
The winning streak is PSC's longest since February of 1995, when the Panthers captured nine in a row on the way to their only NCAA appearance in school history. PSC is now 17-6 overall, while ENC drops to 3-19.
The Panthers used a balanced attack to secure the victory, led by three players who scored in double figures. Sophomore Courtney Albert (Hudson, N.H.) hit 6-of-10 field goals and finished with a team-high 17 points, senior Kate Fillion (Littleton, N.H.) added 12 points, half of them coming from three-point range, and senior Krystyna Zagorski (Matawan, N.J.) chipped in with 11 points and a team-high seven rebounds.
Zagorski's 11 points gives her 994 for her career, leaving her six points short of becoming the sixth woman in school history to reach the 1,000-point milestone.
All but one of the 13 Panthers who played got into the scoring column. PSC shot 49.2 percent as a team while holding ENC to 35.9 percent. The Panthers had a 48-38 advantage in the rebounding department.
Plymouth State wraps up the regular season Saturday (Feb. 17) with a Little East Conference encounter at UMass Dartmouth (1:00 p.m.). The Panthers have already clinched third place in the LEC regular season, and will host sixth-seeded Rhode Island College next Tuesday (Feb. 20) at Foley Gymnasium in a first-round LEC Tournament game. The Panthers are 10-0 at home this season and have won 16 straight at home dating back to last season.
