The Owls were able to pick up wins against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA), Plymouth State University (PSU), and Rhode Island College (RIC). Facing loses early on, The Owls were stuck in a slump mid-season, however they found their momentum against Plymouth State University.

The team was able to take away their first LEC win against the Panthers, boosting their confidence and rejuvenating their attitude. The Keene State College women’s basketball team used a strong start and hot shooting from three point range to beat PSU  62-49 in Little East Conference action on Wednesday night at Spaulding Gym. The Owls went 1-7 overall in the conference, but the one win was a much needed boost, causing them to soon after push past RIC with an overall score of 62-50.

With the basketball team being so young this year (one senior, one junior, five sophomores and four first-years), the dynamics of the team have changed. The Owls are facing adjustments and trying to make that team connection before the season is out. With these recent wins it looks like they are ready to start turning it around. With only four games left before playoffs begin, the women’s basketball team hopes to make a turn around and prove their skill in the games to come, as well as pulling out a few well-deserved wins.
