NYACK, N.Y. – Despite 16 points and eight rebounds from senior guard Eliana Scanlon (New York, N.Y.), the Felician University women's basketball team was defeated by host Nyack College, 67-44, in Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference action on Tuesday evening at Bowman Gymnasium. Nyack (7-15, 5-10) earned a sweep of its two-game season series with the Golden Falcons.
Senior guard Raven Makins (Laurel, Md.) topped a balanced Nyack offense with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Scanlon's 16 points led all scorers.
Felician (2-21, 2-14) led, 10-8, following two Treanda Foster (Bronx, N.Y.) free throws with five minutes, 21 seconds left in the first quarter. However, the Warriors went ahead to stay with an 11-0 run, capped by five points from Jessica Logemann (Seminole, Fla.), and carried a 19-12 lead at period's end. Nyack was ahead by as many as 17 points in the second period, and 38-23 at halftime.
Felician held the hosts to eight third-quarter points, but did not take full advantage of the opportunity to slice its deficit. A buzzer-beating three-point field goal by Alex Salaycik (Staten Island, N.Y.) gave the Golden Falcons 13 points for the quarter, still leaving them trailing, 46-36. Nyack senior Tori Trador (Seminole, Fla.) scored eight points and Makins had six as their team outscored Felician, 21-8, in period four.
The Golden Falcons were held to 28-percent shooting from the floor for the night, and were outscored, 14-4, at the foul line. Salaycik finished with eight points, and Remi Iwelu (Brooklyn, N.Y.) posted six points, seven rebounds, and three blocked shots.
Nyack placed four scorers in double figures. Mariah Brown (Stockton, Calif.) totaled 12 points, Logemann netted 11 points with eight rebounds, and Trador turned in 10 points and six boards.
With the loss, Felician was eliminated from CACC playoff contention.
