Shalette Brown and Alyssa McDonough Help Fuel FDU To Victory!


DALLAS, Pa. – Senior forward Shalette Brown double-doubled for the sixth time in the last seven games as the Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham women’s basketball team handled Misericordia University 80-64 at the Anderson Sports-Health Center on Saturday afternoon.

The Devils (14-5, 6-2 MAC Freedom) currently sit in second place in the MAC Freedom standings trailing DeSales University (14-5, 7-1 MAC Freedom) by one game.

Brown continued her outstanding senior campaign by tallying 21 points and 12 rebounds in the win. Today’s effort marked the 15thdouble-double this season for the veteran forward, which is fourth most in the country, while her 14.4 rebounds per game rank fifth in the nation.

Trailing 8-6 in the early going, the Devils took control with a 12-0 run, bookended by layup from Brown and an Alyssa McDonough 3-pointer. Over that stretch, the Devils forced three Cougar turnovers, while connecting on 5-of-7 from the field. Misericordia finished the quarter strong and cut into the deficit but the Devils led 24-17 after one period of play.

The Cougars turned the tide in the second frame with an 11-2 run. The home team did most of its damage at the charity stripe, going 5-for-5 at the line and nabbing a slim 35-34 lead. However, pair of McDonough free throws with 25 seconds left gave the Devils a 36-35 halftime edge. McDonough was a flawless 10-for-10 from the line and finished with 17 points and six helpers in the contest.

The first half box score reflected the tightness of the contest as the teams posted nearly identical numbers across the board. FDU-Florham shot 45.2 percent from the floor, while the Cougars netted 43.3 percent and both teams knocked down 33.3 percent from long range and were perfect from the line.
