Ewing, New Jersey — The College of New Jersey women’s basketball team gave the Stockton Ospreys women’s basketball team its first loss of the season. The Lions defeated the Ospreys 65-47 at Packer Hall on Wednesday night.
The Lions improved to 4-1 on the season. The Ospreys fell to 4-1 on the season, as well. In the New Jersey Athletic Conference, TCNJ is 2-0 and Stockton are 1-1.
TCNJ has now won four games in a row. Last year on November 30th, the Lions defeated the No. 23rd ranked Ospreys.
The Lions were able to jump out to a huge lead in the first quarter of the game. The Ospreys had trouble getting the game close.
TCNJ had a 14-point halftime lead. They would increase their lead after the break, as Stockton could only muster getting the game within 11-points, before the Lions put the game out of hand.
Jen Byrne led the Lions with 15 points. She was one of three TCNJ players, who scored in double-figures.
Nikki Schott also had 13 points. She let her actions speak for herself on the court, as she was very shy afterwards in a post-game interview. Samantha Famulare, who has started for the team this season, came off the bench and scored 12 points.
Sasha Williams was the game’s leading scorer, as she had 16 points for Stockton. She was the only Ospreys player, who scored in double-figures.
The Lions will be on the road for the next several games, as they do not have another home game until December 9th against New Jersey City University.
