Moose Undefeated at NHTI Holiday Classic

Concord, NH – It was an early 10:00 a.m. game slated for the Moose as they opened the second day of tournament play against Massasoit Community College. However, that early time slot did not impact UMA as they played their way to another commanding win closing the tournament weekend out undefeated.

Caitlin LaFountain got things going for the Moose on offense early netting 8 points and 6 rebounds in the first quarter alone. UMA extended their lead through the first half with sharp shooting from freshman Sidney Moore who would go on to shoot 5-6 from behind the arc and contribute 23 total points.

Catherine Sanborn brought great energy from off the bench helping the Moose push the pace of the game in the second half. Sanborn had 8 points, 2 rebounds, and 5 assists and played strong on defense for the Moose.

Kate Stevens was just shy of her second double-double with 9 points and 9 rebounds. Caitlin LaFountain was a dominate force before fouling out in the beginning minutes of the fourth quarter; netting 30 points and 17 rebounds.

Sidney Moore and Caitlin LaFountain were recognized for their standout play throughout the tournament. Both were named to the NHTI Holiday Inn New Year's Basketball Classic All Classic Team.

The Moose host Paul Smith College at SMCC in South Portland on January 11th at 4PM.
