Mercy Women's Basketball Falls at Post University 65-53

Mercy College guard Simone Williams (Waldorf, Md./Lackey) scored 17 points, but it was not enough as Mercy fell at Post University 65-53 tonight, in a game that was rescheduled from late November. Post (4-7) took the lead just about five minutes into the game, and led by as many as 16 in the second half.

Neither team shot the ball particularly well for the game, but Post was able to put together several small runs in the second half. Leading the way for the Eagles was Raven Wright-James, who scored 26 points, making 10 of her 17 shots.

Mercy (2-8) got eleven points from senior Ashley Borofsky (Southington, Conn./Southington) to compliment Williams. Williams counted for eight of the team's 15 assists on the night.

The Mavericks take a short break, and next compete on Wednesday, January 5, hosting ECC foe Molloy at 5:00 p.m.
