NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. — The LeMoyne College women’s basketball team rallied from a 23-point deficit to stun Merrimack College 61-58 in the first round of the Northeast-10 Conference Championships.
LeMoyne (17-12), which has won 17 games for just the fourth time in the program’s 39-year history and for the first time since the 2001-02 season, advances to the Northeast-10 Conference quarterfinals for the second straight year.
The Lady Dolphins will next take on the Southwest Division’s top seed, Adelphi University. Those Panthers posted 23-point victories in each of the two meetings between the teams this season.
Corry senior forward Emily Greer netted 10 points (seven in the second half) and six rebounds (five in the second half). With her three made shots from 3-point range, Greer now has 62 on the season, which ties Kim Black (1993) for the third-most on the single-season chart and is one shy of tying the program’s record held by Black (1991-92) and Muffy Sadler (2009-10).
