GALLOWAY, N.J. – Freshman guards Jackie Rodriguez(Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville War Memorial) and Julie Rovito (Ridgefield Park, N.J./Ridgefield Park)combined for 29 points but the William Paterson women’s basketball team (5-3, 3-1 NJAC) suffered its first conference loss, 65-61, at Richard Stockton (4-2, 2-1 NJAC) Dec. 6.

The Ospreys jumped out to a quick 17-7 lead less than eight minutes into the contest, but 16 unanswered Pioneer points allowed WP to open up a 23-17 advantage with 4:36 left in the opening period. William Paterson entered the locker room with a narrow 29-27 edge, thanks in part to a 30-21 rebounding margin.

A 20-8 run early in the second half gave Stockton its largest lead of the game at 52-39 with 10:34 to play, but the Pioneers put together a rally, pulling to within two at 60-58 on a Maya Harris (Bloomfield, N.J./Bloomfield) layup at the 1:59 mark. Full Article Here
