WC women’s basketball was able to ring the bell on their Senior Day as they defeated Ursinus 59-44. The result was a complete turnaround from the last time these two met, as the Bears dominated in a 20-point win. The Shorewomen controlled the first half behind senior Emily Hubley as she dropped 11 points shooting just below .500 with her first nine shots.

WC controlled the second half until the Bears went on an 11-0 scoring run just before the last 10 minutes in the game. Ursinus was able to cut the game down to a slim two-point lead for WC. After this point, the Shorewomen never looked back, they went on a 14-1 run to take the win. Seniors Jackie O’Connell and Hubley both had major contributions on their Senior Day. O’Connell went way over her 2.7 points per game when she scored nine points. Hubley lead the team in scoring with 15 points, four of them coming in the second half.

“We will definitely miss the energy the seniors bring to the court and the locker room day in and day out,” sophomore Ali Grundy said.

O’Connell plans to finish out the season strong. “We would like to finish the season with winning out our last few games. It has been a hard fought season and we don’t want to finish our season without that same fight we have had throughout the entire season.”

WC sits at 9-14 as they head into their final games against Swarthmore on Feb. 18 at home and then over to Johns Hopkins for their final regular season game on Feb. 21.
