NEC Undefeated: Robert Morris And Sacred Heart Each Go To 4-0

Behind the stellar play of Choice Hotels NEC Player of the Week Angela Pace, Robert Morris (9-6, 4-0 NEC) swept through Brooklyn this past weekend to defeat Long Island 76-65 and St. Francis (NY) 64-43. Pace led the way against the previously NEC unbeaten Blackbirds with a double-double (19 points/16 rebounds), then followed it up with a 24 point, 12 assist performance against the Terriers. The senior guard committed just one turnover in both games. Robert Morris returns home to face Fairleigh Dickinson (5-9, 1-2 NEC) at 5pm on Thursday and Monmouth (6-9, 1-3 NEC) at 4pm on Saturday. Their next win will be the 600th career victory for head coach Sal Buscaglia.

Sacred Heart (11-4, 4-0 NEC) started the New Year by winning three straight NEC games at home. After defeating Monmouth by 15 points, the Pioneers finished up with a 69-54 victory over Wagner on Thursday and a 67-56 win over Mount St. Mary's on Saturday. Junior Maggie Cosgrove torched the Mount with a career-high seven three-pointers to continue her place atop all of D1, shooting 40-75 (.533) from three-point land so far this season. Sacred Heart hits the road this week with a short jaunt around New England, heading to Bryant (4-10, 2-2 NEC) on Thursday at 5pm, and then to Central Connecticut State (5-9, 2-2 NEC) on Saturday at 1pm.
