Sophomore forward Grace Williamson (Olean, NY/Olean) registered her sixth straight (16 on the year) double-double on a game-high 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Saxons (7-14, 0-11 Empire 8). Freshman forward Lindsay Drummond (Ogdensburg, NY/Ogdensburg) netted eight points and pulled down four rebounds, and sophomore forward Sarah Federico (Buffalo, NY/Holy Angels) scored six points. Senior point guard Kacey Kwiecien (Perry, NY/Perry) dished out a game-best six assists, while committing only one turnover.
