GAME NOTES | CCSU
 
Last Time Out • Central recently dropped a 70-58 decision to St. Francis Brooklyn on Monday Feb. 18. The Blue Devils trailed by eight at halftime and a 16-4 third quarter run by the Terriers led by Jade Johnson extended the lead to 15. Ashley Berube scored all 14 points in the second half but it was not enough to overcome the third quarter run by St. Francis who clinched a NEC Tournament spot with the win.
 
Last Game for Sacred Heart • Katherine Haines dropped 25 points, but SHU fell to LIU Brooklyn 69-65 on Monday. LIU outscored the Pioneers 23-11 in the second quarter and went 6-of-7 from three-point range in the quarter alone. Trailing by three, Sacred Heart had a chance to tie the game but missed a three-pointer and the Blackbirds iced the game with free throws.
