HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • Emerson got themselves on the board on a jumper from Bushee at 8:29 with the score at 3-2, which was the last basket the Lions would record for the next six minutes. 
  • From 8:29 until 2:36, the Lions were held scoreless while Babson bolstered their advantage with the quarter's next 16 points. 
  • Down 21-4 with 2:20 left in the first, the Lions were able to pot seven more points and bring the score to 28-11 at the frame's end. 
  • The second frame saw Emerson drop nine more points and were outscored 18-9 by Babson as the score sat at 40-26 going into the half. 
  • Between the 8:56 and 8:11 mark of the third, Bushee tallied Emerson's lone three points of the quarter and were outscored 13-3 through the third frame. 
  • The beginning of the fourth saw neither Babson nor Emerson find the bottom of the basket with the first bucket at 8:17 on a jumper by Meghan Goode. Several minutes later, sophomore Ava Salti drained a triple to break Emerson's scoring lull. 
  • After Salti's three-pointer, the Lions recorded the next eight of 12 points. Bruno's jumper at the 2:22 mark was the final Emerson basket as the score sat at 69-32.
