The women's basketball team downed Holy Cross 77-58 at Conte tonight. I didn't go. For once , I did the responsible thing and decided I had to stay in and get things done. (Of course, I got next to nothing done.)
I kept Gametracker open and said I'd head down if it got close, but with the exception of a five minute span in the first half, it never got close.
Carolyn Swords had another good game (15/8) but the star tonight was the other big freshman gun inside, Stefanie Murphy (22/11). I think these two have what it takes to hack it in the ACC - although you never know what 6'11'' beastly women Maryland or UNC have waiting in the wings. I'd be lying if I said I knew anything about other ACC women's hoops rosters.
I get back into the swing of things tomorrow, taking the trek down the B-line to Walter Brown for the women's hockey game @ BU, then another women's hockey game Saturday afternoon @ Northeastern.
Thu @ BU, 7 PM

Wed @ Harvard, 7
