GEARING UP FOR THE BIG ONE
The women’s basketball team closed out its non-conference schedule with an emphatic 76-40 victory over Becker College on Monday night. The match was a defensive masterclass for the Polar Bears, who held Becker to just 26 percent shooting from the field and forced the Hawks to commit 22 turnovers. The team will be riding high as it heads into tonight’s crucial NESCAC matchup against Tufts at 7 p.m.. The winner of the game will claim the top NESCAC spot and snap the other team’s undefeated streak.
MESS WITH THE BULL, GET THE (VIKING) HORNS
The women’s hockey team jumped back to a .500 record with a 4-1 victory over Salem State on Tuesday. Two power-play goals propelled the Polar Bear offense, and Bowdoin’s defense held the Vikings scoreless until the last six minutes of the third period. The team has no games this weekend and will get a much-needed break before heading back into a conference play with a game against Amherst on February 7.
A HISTORIC (VER)MONTH
