A career day by redshirt freshman Sydney Lusher (Oneida) led the Le Moyne College women’s basketball team to its fourth straight win over the weekend, and Monday the former all-state guard and Tri-Valley League star was named the Northeast-10 Conference Rookie of the Week for the second time this season.

Lusher had the hot hand early, scoring 15 points on five 3-pointers in the first half of Le Moyne’s 57-44 conference victory over the University of New Haven’s Chargers. Her fifth 3-pointer just beat the halftime buzzer, and she finished the game with a career-high 21 points.

Lusher also had five rebounds and two steals. She entered Wednesday’s game with 26 three-pointers and was averaging 12.4 points for the Division II Dolphins (9-4).

Redshirt sophomore forward Haedyn Roberts (Holland Patent) added 15 points in Le Moyne’s win over New Haven.

In NCAA Division III women’s basketball, Hamilton College senior Emma Sehring (Sauquoit/Notre Dame) scored 11 points and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds as the Continentals beat RIT 68-50 in the first round of the Baldwin Wallace Tournament.

Sehring then scored nine points in Hamilton’s 72-65 loss to eighth-ranked Baldwin Wallace (11-0) in the championship game. 

Hamilton was back in action Monday against another ranked team, and Sehring had a team-high 11 points and eight rebounds in a 57-44 loss to No. 24 Ithaca College.

Elsewhere, SUNY Geneseo’s Kiley Snow (Whitesboro) scored nine points to help the Knights beat Mount Holyoke College 67-27 in Puerto Rico, and St. Lawrence University’s Cam Roberts (Boonville/Adirondack) scored eight points as the Saints extended their winning streak to three games with a 64-36 win over SUNY Potsdam.

Policelli leads Stony Brook men to victory

Stony Brook University graduate student Frankie Policelli (New Hartford) scored nine of his team-high 17 points in the second half and also grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Division I Seawolves to a 65-61 win over Northeastern University, their first league win as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association.

When Utica University’s Pioneers hosted their annual Utica University Classic, Thomas Morreale (Whitesboro) scored 17 points and teammate Damien Call (Rome/RFA) starred in his season debut, finishing with 12 points, a game-high 14 rebounds, four assists and three blocks as Utica won its first-round matchup by outlasting SUNY Delhi 97-91 in overtime. Morreale also had nine points and 12 rebounds in the tournament final, but the Pioneers lost to SUNY Oswego 79-59.

At the Juniata Tournament, SUNY Cortland’s Cam Williams (Rome/RFA) scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc in a 78-66 first-round win over Pitt-Greensburg. Williams then scored 12 points in a 55-51 loss to Juniata in the tournament final.

Cortland rebounded with Tuesday’s 87-82 win over the University of Scranton. Williams scored 15 points for the Red Dragons.

St. Lawrence University’s Trent Adamson (Ilion/Thomas R. Proctor) had 11 points and four assists in Tuesday night’s 78-45 loss to SUNY Oswego.
