Freshman Aliyah Parris (6pts and 7 rebounds) comes off the bench to help St John Fisher roll to victory over AU.

The St. John Fisher College women’s basketball program won its Empire 8 Conference season opener on Tuesday, as the Cardinals cruised to a 63-43 win over visiting Alfred University at Fisher’s Varsity Gym.

Fisher never trailed in the game and enjoyed a double-digit lead at 14-4 less than six minutes in.   Fisher pushed its lead to 20 at 29-9 with just over four minutes left in the first half on back-to-back 3-pointers from freshman Mary Kate Cusack.   Cusack scored 12 in the first half, including a 20-footer from the right wing as time expired, giving the Cardinals a 36-15 advantage at the break. Freshmen Cassie Pope and Aliyah Parris came off the bench and led the Cardinals with seven rebounds apiece.
