Collegian: Minutewomen ride momentum of two-game winning streak into matchup with Holy Cross


Jesse Mayfield-Sheehan previews UMass women's basketball's midweek meeting with Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., as the Minutewomen look to defend their two-game winning streak against an undefeated Crusaders team.

The Massachusetts women's basketball team is heading into Tuesday's game against Holy Cross with a feeling it hasn't had in a long time: the momentum of a winning streak.

After defeating Rutgers on Wednesday and following it up with a win over Hartford on Saturday, the Minutewomen achieved their first two-game winning streak since Feb. 22, 2012.

"It really builds our confidence," junior guard Emily Mital said. "Starting off 0-3, we obviously were kind of in a little slump there, and so this two-game winning streak kind of picked us up and now we're feeling pretty confident."

Holy Cross (3-0) comes into the contest with a strong offense that currently averages 83.7 points per game, with all five starters averaging at least 10 points a game...
