| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Michael Counos and David Martin  preview tonight's women's basketball game against CCSU. UMass is coming off a season opening, 55-49, victory over Boston University last Sunday.


"The Massachusetts women's basketball team will look to win its second straight game at home when it takes on Central Connecticut State on Wednesday night at the Mullins Center," writes Counos.

"More impressive, however, is how well the two maintained their team's sense of confidence and determination to win, as the Terriers came back from several double-digit deficits to pull within striking distance late in the second half," writes Martin.


Tonight's game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. at the Mullins Center.

"Shaq" is on the run, and the University of Massachusetts women's basketball program is on the rise under new head coach Sharon Dawley.

Disregard the 1-7 record, which includes Sunday's much-better-than-expected showing in a 93-80 defeat against unbeaten and Top 25-bound Boston College (8-0) at the Mullins Center, as there are too many positives to allow for negativity. Click here to read more of Dick Baker's great piece on, covering Sunday's game against the Eagles and focusing on the emergence of sophomore Shakia Robinson.

The Daily Collegian also has a recap of the game, as well as a nice sidebar on Robinson.
