Red-hot CCRI women’s basketball team crushes UConn Avery Point for 12th win 13 games
The good times continue to roll for the Community College of Rhode Island women’s basketball team, which started a new win streak Saturday with an 88-50 home win over UConn Avery Point and remained No. 4 in the most recent NJCAA Division III national poll for the fifth consecutive week.
At 16-2, the Knights boast the third-best win percentage (.889) among the nation’s ranked teams, trailing only No. 1 Rochester, No. 3 Minnesota West, and No. 5 Fulton-Montgomery. CCRI has won back-to-back games since a January 17 loss to D-II Union that snapped its season-best 10-game win streak.
Against UConn, four Knights reached double figures, led by sophomore guard Michelle Moreno (Providence, RI), who recorded a triple-double with 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 14 assists.
Sophomore guard Elizabeth Bruno (Providence, RI) continued her phenomenal 2022-23 season with a team-high 28 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field, including a remarkable 8-of-9 from three-point range. Sophomore center Maggie Schwab (Narragansett, RI) connected on 11-of-15 shots and finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds for another double-double and sophomore guard Chloe Rayko (Coventry, RI) added 19 points.
The Knights have the week off before beginning a four-game road trip Saturday at 1 pm against Southern Maine Community College.
