Two Kiwi women in NCAA Division 1 play today and both suffered defeats.
Results March 9th
Tegan Graham (Colgate University)
A team high 17 points (7/13FG) from senior guard Tegan Graham wasn’t enough to prevent number three seeded Colgate being defeated by #6 Lehigh in the Patriot League quarter-finals. The former Wellington College standout also added a game high 4 steals and a couple of rebounds in what is likely to be her final game for the Raiders. Graham scored in double figures in seven of her last eight games and finishes with 700 points in 108 appearances for Colgate.
Joellen How (Wagner College)
No 8 seed Wagner College Seahawks pushed top-seed Robert Norris University all the way in a Northeast Conference Quarter-Final but were eventually pipped 65-61 in overtime.
