Notes: Southern New Hampshire will be look to get back into the win column Wednesday after dropping their second straight game by a final of 76-66 at Assumption on Saturday ... the Penmen, who trailed, 37-29, heading into halftime, clawed their way back to within 56-55 with 6:50 to go, but a pair of 8-2 runs from Assumption down the stretch would seal it ... senior Kylie Lorenzen (Holliston, Mass.) racked up 22 points (5-10 FG, 12-13 FT) while grabbing eight rebounds ... sophomore Gyanna Russell (E. Hampton, Conn.) netted 10 points (3-6 FG, 4-4 FT), while senior Brianna Camara (Fall River, Mass.) scored nine points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3-FG), grabbed eight rebounds and dished three assists ...
