The women’s basketball team continues their hot start to the season as they go into Friday’s CUNYAC game against Hunter College looking to win their first CUNYAC game of the season.
The Bulldogs returned to the West Quad Center last Tuesday for the first time this season as they welcomed Farmingdale State College, in a non-conference game as part of Senior Night at Brooklyn College. It was a low scoring game through the first quarter, as both teams scored below 15 points as the Bulldogs held a two point lead, 13-11, but then in the second quarter Brooklyn’s offense came alive, outscoring the Rams 24-6 to open up a 20-point lead going into the half. The third quarter was a different story, the visiting team made a run of their own and cut Brooklyn’s lead to 10. The Rams outscored Brooklyn 23-14 to cut into the lead.
The Bulldogs’ hot shooting was nowhere to be found in the second half, going ice cold from the field in both quarters, shooting 34% from the field and 27% from three-point range. With Brooklyn struggling on offense the Rams were able to come back from a 20-point deficit and take the game into overtime. The Rams went on to shoot 51% from the field and 66% from three-point range in the second half. When the whistle blew and overtime commenced, Brooklyn came out to play as they looked to continue their undefeated start to the season. It took just one overtime period for Brooklyn to win their fourth straight game, winning in overtime by 3 points 79-76.
The Bulldogs bench out-played Farmingdale’s by 13, as they outscored the Rams bench players 15-2. Brooklyn also won the battle on the boards, as they out-rebounded Farmingdale 48-38.
Brooklyn’s leading scoring was freshman guard, Taylor George (#22), as she dropped 22 in their overtime victory. Junior guard, Alexandra Moogan (#4), chipped in with 19 points and senior guard, Karen Mak (#5), scored 12 points on 4-12 from the field to help the team win their fourth straight game.
