The Rams’ Women’s Basketball team traveled to Worcester State to take on the Lancers in a conference game Feb. 8. 

The Rams and Lancers played a close game during the first quarter with Worcester trailing by only four points heading into the second. 

The second quarter was much of the same, with both teams battling back and forth. The Lancers eventually pulled ahead to take a 34-33 lead at the halfway point of the game. 

Worcester held onto their lead for the entirety of the third, outscoring Framingham 14-12. They had a 48-45 lead over the Rams at the beginning of the fourth. 

Framingham eventually took off, fighting hard in the last quarter and coming back to take a final 71-64 lead over the Lancers. 

Freshman Flannery O’Connor led the team with 27 points, 10 boards, three blocks, and two steals. 

Senior Mary Kate O’Day followed behind her with 16 points, nine boards, two steals, and four assists. 

The Rams then travelled to North Adams to take on the MCLA Trailblazers for another conference match Feb. 12.

The Trailblazers held the score close for the first quarter of play, but eventually lost their stride in the second, allowing the Rams to find their fire. 

With the score tied, the Rams went on a 17-3 run that left them leading 41-23 by the end of the first half. 

The Rams remained untouched for the rest of the game, shooting 41% and securing a 79-54 victory over MCLA to hang on to their undefeated MASCAC run. 

O’Day and classmate Emily Velozo led the floor with a combined 36 points for the match. 

The two wins bring Framingham to 17-5 overall and 9-0 in the      MASCAC. 

The Rams will host Salem State on Feb. 15 in the hopes to push their win-streak to 10.
