Bowdoin ousts Panther women’s basketball

BRUNSWICK, Maine — Host No. 2 Bowdoin on Saturday ended the No. 7 Middlebury College women’s basketball season in a NESCAC quarterfinal, 80-52.
The 22-3 Polar Bears advanced to a semifinal vs. Amherst, while the Panthers finished at 11-14, 3-7 in NESCAC play.
Shannon Brady led the Polar Bears with 25 points and eight rebounds. 
Elizabeth Knox paced Middlebury with 14 points and 10 boards. Sarah Kaufman pitched in 11 points, while Sabrina Weeks added nine points.
Middlebury hung close for a while, trailing by 26-22 when Kaufman buried a three-pointer at 7:22 of the first half. But Bowdoin closed the half on an 18-5 run to lead at the break, 44-27, and pulled away in the second half, in part because of a 50-29 edge on the boards, including 27 offensive rebounds that led to 21 second-chance points.
Bowdoin also committed just six turnovers and shot 43 percent, while holding Middlebury to 37 percent from the floor.
