The Rams’ Women’s Basketball team took on Curry College in their season opener Nov. 12.
The first quarter was close as Framingham outscored Curry 19-15. Mary Kate O’Day led the way with eight points, three rebounds, an assist, and a steal.
The second quarter was dominated by the Rams, as they pulled off a 13-0 run in route to a 30-11 score advantage to make the game 49-26 heading into halftime.
Framingham had another run to open the second half, as they outscored Curry 11-0, and eventually 30-6 for the third quarter.
Both Camille Desrochers and Flannery O’Connor supplied the Rams with five points each off the bench in the quarter.
The final quarter was once again controlled by the Rams, as they scored 12 points to Curry’s nine, finalizing the score at 91-41.
Senior guard Emily Velozo said, “Winning the first game of the season is always a plus. It’s the best way to start the season.
“It is also a test to see how productive our preseason was. Just because we blew a team out doesn’t mean anything, though. We still have a lot to prove this season,” she added.
Velozo scored eight points, grabbed four rebounds, and had a game-high seven assists despite playing at the shooting guard position.
“I played point guard my whole life up until last year,” Velozo said. “So, even though I’m playing the two guard, I still have that point guard mentality, so that is definitely part of my game plan.”
O’Day led the Rams with a game-high 24 points, along with seven rebounds and three assists.
“MK [Mary Kate] had a great start to her senior year,” Velozo said.
“The way she played is how the league and the team is going to expect her to play for the rest of the season,” she added.
The Rams are now 1-0 on the season. They travel to Brandeis to take on the Eastern Nazarene Lions Nov. 15.
