College of St. Joseph Women's Basketball hits the road on Wednesday, Nov. 30 to take on the SUNY Delhi Broncos. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
The Lady Saints enter Wednesday's matchup with a 4-1 overall record after losing their first game of the season against Central Maine Community College on Oct. 27. They will be looking to get back to their winning ways when they go up against SUNY Delhi. In order for CSJ to be successful, they will need freshman Jacobie Maupin-Alexander to have yet another solid performance. Maupin-Alexander has been a workhorse for the Lady Saints all season, leading the team with 20 points per game, which is good enough for fourth overall in the USCAA. She and junior Alexius Brooks have been dominant on the boards throughout the year. Brooks averages a team high 12.2 boards per game (seventh in the USCAA) and Maupin-Alexander pulls down just under 10 per game. If the Lady Saints can control the paint and cut down on their turnovers, they give themselves a great shot against the Broncos.
SUNY Delhi has an overall record of 4-8 thus far. They have struggled to put points on the board, averaging just 57 points per game on 33 percent shooting from the field as a team. They are coming off a one-sided victory against Penn State Worthington Scranton, in which they won convincingly 59-40. The Broncos are led in scoring by freshman Samiaya Salley, who is averaging 14.2 points per game. The Lady Saints will look to lower her touches and make it tough on her, as she is the only player on the team averaging double-digits.
