Saints Complete the Sweep...Again!

The Emmanuel College women's basketball team cruised to a 65-52 win at Albertus Magnus College in the Cosgrove Marcus Messer Athletic Center on Saturday afternoon. The victory completed the sweep of Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) opponents for the Saints, as they improved to 19-6 overall and undefeated once again in the conference at 11-0.

Saturday's win marked Emmanuel's fourth-straight undefeated regular season in GNAC play.  The Saints now hold a streak of 52-consecutive regular season GNAC wins. Including post-season conference play, Emmanuel has gone 64-0 against GNAC opponents, a streak dating back to February 9, 2010, when the Saints suffered a 70-67 loss to former GNAC opponent, Emerson College.

Emmanuel will once again be the top-seed in the upcoming GNAC Tournament. The Saints will play host the 8th-seeded Cadets of Norwich University in a GNAC Quarterfinal contest on Tuesday, February 25th. Tip-off in the Jean Yawkey Center is set for 7:00 p.m.
