Despite putting in good efforts, the women’s basketball team suffered three defeats over this past week.
After falling 83-53 to Canisius last Wednesday in a game which freshman Kayleen Fitzsimmons scored a career-high 13 points, the Red set its sights on the University of New Hampshire’s Thanksgiving Tournament this past weekend. In the Red’s first game against the hosts on Saturday, Cornell led for most of the game and almost pulled off the win. However, the Wildcats hit big free throws down the stretch and took the encounter, 75-72.
Fitzsimmons again led the Red with 15 points, hitting 5-of-8 3-pointers. Freshman Jeomi Maduka recorded her second double-double of her career with 13 points and 18 boards.
In the tournament’s consolation game yesterday, though Maduka scored 17 points and junior Claire Perry added 14, Cornell fell to North Texas, 62-51. The Red is now 1-4 this season.
