“We didn’t draw up a play specifically; the plan was just to run down the clock a little bit and then just find someone to take an opening,” Barnosky said. “We’d found in the second half that attacking the hoop was working really well and I just happened to have an opening.”
Barnosky finished the night with 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists, while Foley quietly finished with 15 points of her own. But the afternoon belonged to Moynihan, who came off the bench and carried the Jumbos with career highs in points, with 20, and steals, with four.
“I like when we are attacking the basket,” Moynihan said. “It’s a really good look for our team and something that we practiced a lot. Dribble−drive is something we love to do and we have the perfect team for that.”
With the win, the team completes a perfect pre−winter break stretch for only the second time in school history, matching the 2007−2008 team that went to the Elite Eight. It will likely also earn its highest ranking in school history this coming week, but with the NESCAC slate on the horizon there is still plenty to work on.
“I’m really happy with what we’ve accomplished in this first part of the season,” Barnosky said. “But at the same time, the NESCAC competition is always significantly tougher. So I think we’ve gotten a lot better as a team and set a good foundation, but we’ve still got a lot more to improve upon if we want to reach all of our goals.”
