Bridgeport, Conn.-The University of Bridgeport women's basketball team held a 28-25 lead with 5:05 to play in the second quarter, but the visiting Roberts Wesleyan College Redhawks closed out the frame on a 12-0 run to take a 37-28 lead at the half on their way to a 77-56 East Coast Conference win over UB on Friday night in Hubbell Gym. Bridgeport is now 3-7 overall and 0-3 in conference play. RWC is now 6-4 overall and moves to 2-1 on the ECC.
Sophomore Briana Stoddart (Brooklyn, N.Y.) led the Purple Knights in scoring on Friday with 11 points off the UB bench. Senior Morgen Caution (Baltimore, Md.) fell just shy of a double-double for the hosts grabbing a game-high 13 rebounds and scoring nine points.
The UB women's basketball team will look to snap five-game losing streak on Sunday when they host the Wildcats of Damen College in an ECC tilt. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m.
