Dowdy - 1K / 1K

BENNINGTON, Vt. --- Senior forward Adrianna Dowdy (East Haven, Conn. / Hill Regional Career) became the first player in the history of the Becker College women's basketball program to record 1000 points and 1000 rebounds for her career as the Hawks prevailed 49-30 at Southern Vermont College in New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) play on Thursday evening at the Mountaineer Athletic Center in Bennington, Vermont.

THE BASICS
February 14, 2019
Leicester Gymnasium, Leicester
Score: Becker 49, Southern Vermont 30
Records: Becker (18-6, 15-2 NECC) | Southern Vermont (6-18, 4-13 NECC)

FOR THE HAWKS
• Dowdy's final rebound of the night – a defensive rebound with 5:56 to go in the third - gave her seven for the game and exactly 1000 for her career. She is only the second Hawk ever to reach that milestone. Earlier this season, the senior team captain became the eighth player in school history to reach the 1000-point mark. Against the Mountaineers, Dowdy totaled 10 points, three steals and two assists.
• Junior guard Cassidy Harrison (Foxborough, Mass. / Foxborough) led the Hawks in scoring with 17 points, shooting 50 percent from the floor. She also tallied three rebounds and two steals.
• Senior forward Ciara McKissick (Charlton, Mass. / Shepherd Hill Regional) finished with 12 points, four rebounds and three steals.
• Junior forward Sarah Ware (Oakham, Mass. / Quabbin Regional) chipped in by scoring four points and pulling down four boards.
• The Hawks defense forced the Mountaineers into 21 turnovers and allowed just 24.1 percent shooting from the floor.

FOR THE MOUNTAINEERS
• Southern Vermont junior Taylor Mallett (Berwick, Maine) led the team with seven points, and she also had three steals on the night. Senior Maddy Main (Bennington, Vt.) had six points while tying the game-high of seven rebounds in her final collegiate game at the MAC, and junior Di Smith (Troy, N.Y.) chipped in with another six points.

TURNING POINT
• With the score tied 10-10 in the second quarter, Becker went on a 17-0 run to take command of the game, a stretch capped off with a jumper from McKissick to open the third quarter.
