WALTHAM, Mass.- Back at Red Auerbach Arena for the first time in five games, the Brandeis Women's basketball struggled in University Athletic Association (UAA) action against 12th-ranked Washington University in St. Louis. A defensive struggle saw the Judges score just 18 first half points. Despite a strong effort from rookie guard Hannah Cain (Gloucester, Mass./ Gloucester), who was tied for the team lead in points and led Brandeis in assists and steals, the Judges fell 57-33 due to another cold shooting night (26.5% from the field). The loss drops Brandeis to 8-15 (1-11 UAA) as the Bears improve to 19-4 (9-3 UAA).
Wash U was led by senior guard Dani Hoover (Junction City, Kan./ Junction City) who finished with 12 points as the only player to score in double figures for the game. Senior forward Brianne Monahan (Beloit, Wis./ Beloit Memorial) led the Bears with seven rebounds and tied for the team lead with a block. Senior guard Bethany Morrison (Little Rock, Ark./ Pulaski Acad.) led the squad with three assists while three Bears' players tied for the team lead with two steals each.
