Great win. Scored last 10 points of game, including a layup at the buzzer, to win 61-59. Several steals and great D at the end. URI is horrible, 3-19 now, but feel good for the women.

Going into the game, Richmond was 8-14 (3-6 in conference) and giving up 65 PPG in conference play.

Anyone know if some of the players are playing with injuries? I can't get a handle on it but this team is grossly under-performing.

Can't help but wonder what impact Coach Verdi's wife's health situation has had on the coach and the team.

La Salle is 2-7 in conference (both wins at home) and they are very low scoring. Gals, please don't let this one get away.

A close win. Nice. Another game where they held onto the lead they built.
