Plattsburgh Comes Back To Post Women's Basketball Win

Plattsburgh, N.Y. – The Geneseo women’s basketball team (16-6, 12-4 SUNYAC) dropped a 53-49 decision to host Plattsburgh (11-11, 7-8 SUNYAC) Saturday in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) competition.

The host Cardinals used a 19-10 second-half run to erase Geneseo’s biggest lead – a 29-21 advantage – then kept the Knights from getting closer than three points the rest of the game.

Senior guard Melissa Graham (Orchard Park/Mount Mercy) led Geneseo with 19 points. She added six rebounds.

Senior forward Nyisha Lewis (Rochester/Mercy) paced the Knights – who own Division III’s highest rebounding margin – with a career-best eight rebounds. First year forward Allison McKenna (Huntington/John Glenn) scored nine points and sophomore forward Shannon McGinnis (Walworth/Gananda) finished with eight points and six rebounds.

The Knights play their final non-conference game of the regular season Tuesday, hosting Keuka at 6 p.m.
