Players to Watch (CSI): Jacquelyn Cali found her stroke against the Bearcats on Wednesday, sinking 4-of-6 from behind the arc. When Cali is firing on all cylinders, it gives the Dolphins an added dimension which stretches opposing defenses. Megan McEwan was able to benefit from the stretched defense by collecting five assists and pouring in 15 points. Diana Todaro and Rosa Perone have caused issues for opposing teams inside the paint as Todaro’s physicality and Perone’s height pair well together.
Players to Watch (CCNY): Debra Chan and Ashley Brooks pace the Beavers with 10.9 and 10.6 points per game, respectively. Brooks is the rim protector as well, tallying 15 blocks and pulling down a team-high 12.1 rebounds per game. Emily Arias is hitting a team-leading 32% of her 3-point attempts which has translated into 7.2 points per game. Mara Poch has started in 13 games this season and is dishing out 2.9 assists per game. Crystal Blair led the Beavers in their last outing with 17 points on 5-of-6 shooting from the floor and cashing in on 7-of-8 free throws.
