SEAHAWK WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RESULTS
Salve Regina 67, Eastern Nazarene 55
Rodgers Rec. Ctr. - Newport, R.I.
Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Summary
NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University sophomore Torie Scorpio (Cranston, R.I.) led all players with 16 points on seven of nine shooting from the floor propelling the Seahawks to a 67-55 victory over Eastern Nazarene College in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) women's basketball opener for both schools. The Seahawks outscored the Lions in every quarter except the third, with a seven-point gap in the second quarter giving the hosts a 33-25 lead at the half. Salve Regina held a 39-31 edge in rebounding.

Series and Streaks
Salve Regina leads the all-time series, 37-11, and ends a two-game losing skid at the Rodgers Recreation Center against Eastern Nazarene. Salve Regina has won the last two meetings with Eastern Nazarene; the Seahawks and Lions will meet again in Quincy, Mass., on January 24, 2018.

Three Stars of the Game

  1. Salve Regina sophomore Torie Scorpio (Cranston, R.I.) scored a game-high 16 points on 7-of-9 from the floor including making both of her 3-point attempts, both in the second half. Scorpio added two steals and three rebounds.
  2. Salve Regina senior Mary Eden (South Kingstown, R.I.) made two of three 3-point attempts for her six points while dishing out nine assists and contributing five steals and six rebounds.
  3. Eastern Nazarene junior Tia Torio (Manteca, Calif.) had a team-high 11 points on 3-of-5 from the floor and 5-of-6 from the line. She also had five rebounds.

Key Stat of the Game
Seahawks found the open player with 18 assists on 28 field goals. Mary Eden accounted for half of her team's assists.

Turning Point
Mary Eden's first 3-pointer at 9:30 in the second quarter put the Seahawks on top by two (16-14) and started a 20-6 run for Salve Regina.

Quick Hits

  • Three Lions finished with five rebounds apiece - Tia Torio, Alyssa Cosio Murillo (Santa Barbara, Calif.), and Seniesha Sekaquaptew (Scottsdale, Ariz.).
  • Salve Regina junior Tara Burke (Georgetown, Mass.) led all players with eight rebounds.
  • Salve Regina starts its season 2-0 at home; last season the Seahawks lost their first eight home games before winning their final three - now with a five-game win streak at Rodgers Recreation Center.
  • Salve Regina junior Kerri Beland (Attleboro, Mass.) and senior Ally Esielionis (Shirley, Mass.) finished in double-figure scoring with 11 and 10 points, respectively.
  • The Lions' bench outscored the Seahawks' bench by two points, 24-22.
  • Salve Regina had its largest lead in the third quarter, 14 points (45-31 at 6:44 mark), after a layup by Mary Rorke (Norton, Mass.).
  • Eastern Nazarene won the third quarter by two points, 21-19, and it took a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Rorke to close that margin.

Next Up
Both teams are on the road for more CCC competition as Salve Regina (2-2, 1-0 CCC) travels to Western New England for a 1 p.m. tip-off. Eastern Nazarene (4-2, 0-1 CCC) has a shorter trip to Boston, Mass., to face Wentworth Institute of Technology.
