PSU Women’s Basketball falls to Norwich

Towle and Perry score in double figures for Panthers

            NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Sophomore Aliah Curry (Windsor, Mass.) scored 28 points Thursday evening to lead the Norwich University women's basketball team to a 60-42 non-conference win against the Panthers of Plymouth State University.

            Curry totaled 17 of her 28 points in the first half on 4-of-8 shooting from the floor, including 3-of-6 from behind the three-point arc. The Cadets opened the game with a 10-4 lead in the first 3:45 of the game and led by 10 at the 7:28 mark after a pair of made free-throws by Curry.  Norwich would hold the double-digit lead for the entire second half and led by as many as 25 points. 

            The Cadets also saw standout performances by Erin Clark (Newbury, Vt.), who contributed eight points, and Jessalyn Sweeney (Standfordville, N.Y.), who added six points and a team-high seven rebounds. Kristin Brown (Williamstown, Vt.) dished out a game-high six assists.

            Plymouth State got double-figure performances by senior Kaylee Towle (Dover, N.H.) with 13 and freshman Taylor Perry (Simsbury, Conn.), who chipped in with 10.  Sophomore Tiffany Lewis (Hillsboro, N.H.) led the Panthers on the boards with a career-best 12 rebounds.

            The Cadets, 6-8, return to action on Saturday when they travel to Mt. Ida College for a 1:00 p.m. Great Northeast Athletic Conference matchup.  PSU is back to Little East Conference competition Saturday with a visit to Western Connecticut State University.
