RINDGE, N.H. – Southern New Hampshire University’s women’s basketball team took home an easy victory against in-state rival Franklin Pierce College on Saturday, 83-68.
The Penmen overcame an early deficit to outscore Franklin Pierce 30-19 in the first quarter, growing their lead to 18 by the middle of the third quarter.
Perhaps the only significant blemish for SNHU came from beyond the arc, where Franklin Pierce had just over double the Penmen’s output (37.5% to 17.6%).
Junior Victoria Dean (Plymouth, Mass.) led the Penmen with 14 points off the bench, with four other SNHU players finishing in double digits.
They finish the regular season on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at home against Assumption.
