Women’s basketball wins rematch against Ramapo

This weekend, women’s basketball changed gears and defeated Ramapo college with a score of 43-35. Earlier in the season, they had gone into overtime with the Roadrunners and lost by 3 points at 65-68. Osprey Aiya Underwood stated that “we went to overtime last time we played them and I’m like, ‘we can beat them.’ It was just our fouling and our turnovers that killed us that game… if we limit those and we play tough like we did the first we’ll be fine.”
