Bryn Mawr Stymied by Red Devils

Bryn Mawr Stymied by Red Devils

Carlisle, Pa. - It was a rough day on the hardcourt for the Owls basketball squad earlier Saturday afternoon. Bryn Mawr travelled to Carlisle for one final road game this season, but they ran into a freight train in the form of a tough Dickinson team and were forced to come home with a 71-9 loss. Sophomore forward Tosin Ajiboye led the Owls with four points off the bench in a strong twenty minutes of play. Adriana Castilla-Hernandez chipped in two more points and grabbed six rebounds on the day. The Red Devils were led by Ashley Kinney with 12 points on the day. Fifteen players saw game action for the hosts, and all but two of them scored points.

The Owls (1-17) were behind the eight-ball from the get-go, as Dickinson (6-17) ran out to a 22-0 lead inside the first ten minutes of play. Bryn Mawr finally got on the board at the 11:03 mark of the half when Ajiboye hit a layup after a Castilla-Hernandez offensive rebound. A few minutes later, Sanam Sheriff would hit a jumper from the wing to give the Owls four points, but Dickinson would close the half on another run to take a 39-4 lead into the locker room at halftime.

The second half was equally unkind to the Owls; after a free throw five minutes into the frame, Bryn Mawr would be unable to find the bottom of the basket until there were three minutes left to play. Early on, it was Breeden who split a pair of free throws, and then Ajiboye doubled her total before Castilla-Hernandez got into the scoresheet with a layup of her own. Meanwhile, Dickinson's offense would be able to continue their 45% shooting clip throughout the half, eventually pulling away to the 71-9 victory.

The Owls will now return home to the friendly confines of the Class of 1958 Gymnasium for their final two games of the season next week. On Wednesday Bryn Mawr will face off against Muhlenberg, who currently hold a 16-6 overall record and are battling for position in the competitive Centennial Conference. Then, the Owls will close out the season on Saturday with a Senior Day game against Trinity Washington University.
