UMBC Women’s Basketball Makes Early Exit From America East Tournament

March 05, 2010 |

The UMBC women’s basketball team just could not get much going against Boston U in the first round game of the America East Conference Tournament. The team shot just 32.1% and just 13% from three-point range and could never get into a rhythm on offense.

Carlee Cassidy led the team with 18 points and had eight rebounds in what would be the final game of her career, while Michelle Kurowski scored 13 points and had eight rebounds.

UMBC was able to slow the game down to a pace favorable for them, but they just were not able to hit shots. Erin Brown shot six threes and none of them hit the rim.

After being down by only two points with two minutes remaining in the first half, Boston U went on an 8-0 run to end the half, which completely killed UMBC at break and after the half they came out very flat and still could not get anything done offensively.

The defense played well but Boston U’s Alex Young hit four threes and scored 23 points while the they outrebounded UMBC 43-35.
