Megan RobinsonMemorial is looking to respond after losing a pair of games to the Saint Mary’s Huskies last weekend. The Sea-Hawks had trouble scoring against the Huskies and will look to capitalize on their opportunities against the Capers this weekend.


The Capers opened their season with a split against StFX that included a 68-63 double overtime win on Sunday. CBU had strong individual performances from a pair of rookie forwards to kick off the season. Alison Keough has averaged 14.5 points and 14 rebounds over her first two starts and Rasheeka Gunn had a big game in their win over St. FX, leading the Capers with 24 points and 11 rebounds.


The size of the Capers will force Memorial to make a concerted effort to compete on the glass.
