SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine—The Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) women's basketball team routed the Bobcats from Paul Smith's College 75-18 to sweep the season set on Timothy D. Hagerman Alumni Day, Saturday, Jan. 12.
The SeaWolves erupted for 47 points in the first half and held the opponent to a mere three, zero in the second quarter, to improve on their 46.7 points-against average (YSCC-2). Paul Smith's doubled its point total in the third and scored nine more in the fourth, but it was SMCC's on-ball defense and ability to challenge the Bobcats into low-percentage shots that earned the home team a 57-point victory.
Sophomore forward Amanda Brett (Portland, Maine) dropped 23 points on 9-14 shooting—her eighth game with 20 or more this season. Brett moved into sole possession of tenth all-time on the women's scoring list, having tallied 578 in just 42 games as a SeaWolf.
Paul Smith's Denise Jones led her team with seven points.
The SeaWolves remain perfect at home and push to 12-2 overall, 8-1 in Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC) action. The Bobcats suffer their sixth consecutive loss and dip to 3-9 overall, 1-7 YSCC.
The YSCC slate continues when SMCC travels to Unity College to battle the Rams at 6 p.m.
