The Numbers Game
20: Ferg Myrick poured in 20 last night against Connecticut as the Wildcats gave the Huskies a run for their money. With 6:10 remaining, Myrick sunk a three to bring New Hampshire with in three points, but the Huskies were able to hold on.
62.2: Albany sophomore Megan Craig has been shooting the ball very well for the Great Danes so far, and her 62.2 field goal percentage is good for 20th in the country (as of 12/25).
3.23: Mo Moran has been great for Boston U. so far this season, dishing the ball all over the place and taking care of it as well. Her assist to turnover ration of 3.23 is 16th in the country (as of 12/25).
57-2: The Vermont women had two incredible seasons in a row in 1991-92 and 1992-93. The head coach of those teams that won 57 games in two years? Cathy Inglese. The former coach will return to Burlington this weekend for the TD Bank Classic as the head coach of Rhode Island.
