Craig, UAlbany Women Defeat New Hampshire, Clinch America East Regular Season Title

UAlbany women’s basketball clinched the America East regular season championship on Wednesday night with a 55-46 win over New Hampshire, due largely to the efforts of sophomore center Megan Craig.

Craig, who stands at 6’9″, scored 20 points on 9-14 shooting, saving the Great Danes from an otherwise anemic offensive night.

The rest of the team only managed 35 points and, outside of Craig’s 9-14 performance, the other players on the squad only managed to shoot 11-35 for the game, including 1-8 from three point range.

Things were so bad for Albany that they found themselves down by 12 points, 30-18 at the half before locking down with their trademark defense in the second half, outscoring the Wildcats 37-16 in the game’s final 20 minutes.

The game moved the Great Danes to 15-0 in America East play, one game away from a perfect regular season in league play. Their final conference game is this Saturday at 2 PM against Stony Brook at SEFCU Arena.

The regular season title also guarantees them the America East regular season title and, should they lose in the America East tournament, a berth in the Women’s NIT.

Of course, the promise of a WNIT berth means nothing to the team, who continue to strive for a conference championship and NCAA Tournament appearance this March.
