Haverford 62, Arcadia 41
Sophomore guard Hope Rainey's 15 points helped the Haverford College women's basketball team sail past Arcadia University, 62-41, Tuesday night in non-conference road action to earn its sixth win in a row. The Fords (12-3) finished off the non-conference portion of their schedule a perfect 5-0 while Arcadia (3-11) dropped its third straight. The Fords' six-game win streak ties the longest streak in program history which occurred during the 1990-91 season. Rainey finished 7-for-10 shooting from the floor on the night while freshman guard Elizabeth Lynch recorded her third-straight double-figure scoring performance with 10 points. Arcadia became the latest victim of the stingy Haverford defense as it is the fourth-straight squad to be held under 30 percent shooting from the floor by the Fords. Haverford held the Knights to just 24 percent shooting for the game and forced 16 turnovers as Arcadia recorded its lowest point production of the season.
