Blue Devils Continue on the Road to Robert Morris

The Central Connecticut women's basketball team continues on the road to Moon Township, PA to take on the Colonials of Robert Morris. RMU sits at a perfect 10-0 in the Northeast Conference, setting a new school record for the best NEC start. Isabella Posset made a break away layup with 38 seconds remaining to help lift Robert Morris past Bryant 59-56 on Saturday. The team forced 23 turnovers and had 11 steals against the Bulldogs. Bryant and Mount St. Mary's are both 4-6 in league play, as Central sits at 3-7 in eighth place.

The Blue Devils dropped a 83-68 decision to Saint Francis U Saturday. A late run by the Red Flash put them up 16 with 8:11 to play and despite a late push by Central, the double-digit deficit was too much to overcome. Senior Andi Lydon led the team with a season-high 17 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. Classmate Kiana Patterson posted 15 points giving her 1,299 career points, making her the fourth all-time leading scorer for women's basketball at Central Connecticut.
