Sophomore guard Anne Simon led the Black Bears in scoring with 16 points and seven rebounds. Senior guard Dor Saar had 13 points, three rebounds and four assists, while sophomore forward Abbe Laurence added 10 points and freshman guard Alba Orios had nine points and four assists.

Blanca Milan followed her 30-point, 14-rebound season opening effort with 12 points and seven boards in the 14-point victory against URI.
