In the women’s game, CMCC defeated NHTI 91-43 despite 15 points from Liz Sinotte (Concord). NHTI entered the game a bit undermanned due to injuries to key players including captain Allura Leblanc (Northwood), who didn’t play for the Lynx.
The following Tuesday, Nov 25, the men’s team lost 88-80 to a hot shooting Naval Prep team on the base of the US Naval Academy Prep School in Newport, RI.
