Jersey City, N.J. (1/16/19) – Rookie Shannon McCoy dropped a career and game-high 28 points as the Kean University women's basketball team dispatched New Jersey City University, 69-64.
The Cougars improve to 8-9 overall and even their record at 5-5 in New Jersey Athletic Conference play. NJCU drops to 4-13 this season and 1-9 in NJAC action.
The Gothic Knights collected an early 6-2 lead behind four points from Miesha Bacon but that would be the only lead they would take in the contest as Kean quickly knotted things up at six-all on a jumper from McCoy and less than a minute later taking the lead for good on a layup by Danielle Oakley.
The Cougars started off the second half on a 12-3 run to push out to their largest lead of the day (46-34). McCoy provided six points in the spurt while classmate Aniyah Moore added four.
Kean looks to carry the momentum as they travel to face Montclair State University on Saturday.
