Early first half run knocks Maine-Fort Kent women out at USCAA National Tournament
March 5, 2014 • Uniontown, Pa.

In Women’s Division I tournament action Wednesday at the 2014 USCAA Basketball National Champions ships in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, the third-seeded Robert Morris University-Springfield (IL) Lady Eagles defeated the number six-seeded University of Maine-Fort Kent Lady Bengals 84-64.

RMU opened the game on a 16-0 run which proved to be too much for UMFK to overcome. The Lady Bengals (12-8) shot just 30% from the floor and made just 14-29 from the foul line (49%) in the game while RMU connected on 47% of their attempts including 7 threes.

RMU (15-8) was led by USCAA 1st Team All-American, Cassandra Baker who finished the game with 23 points (10-18 shooting), 14 rebounds, and five assists. Tamara Abu Tayeh added 15 points (5-9 3PT).

UMFK was paced by USCAA All-American Honorable Mention Samantha Carapellucci (SO F Fort Kent, Maine) with 12 points and 10 rebounds and Alexis Warne (JR G Salinas, California) added 13 points and 9 rebounds. Seniors Taylor Boucher (F Fort Kent, Maine) and USCAA 2nd Team All-American Jenn Colpitts (G Scarborough, Maine) combined to shoot just 3-22 and Colpitts left the game with a knee injury midway through the second half in the tough loss. Her availability for Thursday’s game is not yet known.

Robert Morris University-Springfield will advance to face the winner of #2 Ave Maria University versus #7 St. Joseph’s College Brooklyn at 1:00 PM on Thursday in the Main Arena. University of Maine-Fort Kent will face the loser of that game in consolation action at 8am Thursday also in the Main Arena.
