Notes: Southern New Hampshire had won three of its last four before suffering a 90-79 loss at Pace on Wednesday evening ... the Penmen held an early first-quarter edge, but would not lead again the rest of the way, as a 12-4 barrage gave the hosts the lead for good ... Pace built the halftime advantage to 10 and went up by as many as 17 in the fourth quarter before SNHU came as close as seven with just over a minute to play ... senior Kylie Lorenzen (Holliston, Mass.) netted a team-high 21 points (10-16 FG, 1-1 FT), grabbed eight rebounds and dished three assists, becoming the second player in program history to join the 1,500-point, 800-rebound club ... sophomore Gyanna Russell (E. Hampton, Conn.) continued her strong play of late by matching her career high with 14 points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3-FG, 7-11 FT) ... junior Victoria Dean (Plymouth, Mass.) was also in double figures with 11 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3-FG, 1-2) off the bench ... the Penmen will be looking to avenge a season-ending loss to Southern Connecticut in the NE10 Championship quarterfinal round the last time the two teams met in February.
