ALBANY, N.Y. - Lindsay Adams (Theresa, N.Y.) dropped a career-high 23 points as four Wildcats scored in double figures to lead New Hampshire to a 71-61 victory over the Albany Great Danes in women's basketball action Saturday afternoon at the Recreation and Convocation Center.
Adams hit 8-of-12 shots from the field, including 3-of-5 shots from the three-point line, and 4-of-5 shots from the free throw line in attaining her total. The senior also notched three rebounds and two assists in the winning effort.
Sophomore Danielle Clark (Corinna, Maine) did most of her damage at the foul line, making 9-of-10 shots from the charity stripe on her way to 17 points and a team-high eight rebounds. Whitney Edwards (Mount Vernon, N.Y.) and Ebony Woods (Philadelphia, Pa.) each scored ten points to help the Wildcats win their second consecutive road game.
Jen Schumacher led the Danes with 14 points, but hit only 5-of-13 shots from the field as UNH made her the focus of their defense. Danielle Hutcheson notched a double-double with 12 points and ten rebounds.
