SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine—The Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) women’s basketball team reached the double-digit win mark with a 90-56 victory over the Knights from Vermont Technical College (VTC) in a Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC) contest on Saturday, Dec. 8.

Sophomore Amanda Brett (Portland, Maine) led all scorers in the game with 28 and 14 rebounds. First-year Hanna St. Pierre (Jay, Maine) matched a season-high 10 points over 34 minutes and junior Nyakuoth Mach (Des Moines, Iowa) came off the bench to contribute 23 points shooting near 50 percent.

VTC’s Jordanna Morris led her team with 26 points on 9-21 shooting and Quanisha Ferrol used all 40 minutes to log 13 boards and four blocks.
