LI women represent on hardwood

It was a big weekend for Long Island in women's basketball.

By now everyone knows Bria Hartley had 13 points and five assists as the No.1 UConn Huskies tied the UCLA men's record for 88 straight victories with an 81-50 win over Ohio State on Sunday.

We also know about Sammy Prahalis, who lead the nation in assists (9.7).

But what may have gone overlooked was Yale's 91-85 win over No. 15 Florida State on Saturday. Yale was 1-7 heading into that game, while Florida State was the bigger and faster SEC team.

Thanks to a big time performance by Calhoun graduate Megan Vasquez, Yale pulled off the upset of the year.

Vasquez had 25 points on 7-for-13 shooting and six assists in the win.

 Former Copaigue star Ieasia Walker (12.3 ppg) leads South Carolina in scoring, Eugeneia McPherson had a career-high 23 points for St. John's in a win over Southern Mississippi on Saturday, while Michelle Kurowski leads UMBC in scoring at 13.2 points per game.
