According to Coach Morong, "This was a great team win because everyone who went into the game made an immediate positive impact. We were crashing the boards, had our hands in the passing lanes, and diving on the floor for loose balls, regardless of what the scoreboard said. I am very proud of our effort this evening, and I hope the top-to-bottom effort is a sign of things to come."
CM outscored the visitors 68-10 in the paint, tallied 45 bench points, and held a +34 rebounding advantage.
Tasha Jarosz led the Herons with 9 points.
With the win CM improves to 20-1 overall, and will be back in action Friday, when they travel to Amherst, MA to take one Hampshire College.
