Ali Fourney '09 (#11, right in photo) broke the 12th and final tie of the game vs. WPI Thurs., Nov. 29 with a three-pointer at the 3:10 mark to put the Cardinals ahead for good, 51-48. After Wesleyan carried a 55-50 lead into the final 1:30, WPI narrowed the gap to 55-53 with :27 to go. Meredith Lowe '09 (#20, left in photo) calmly sank a pair of free throws at the :18 mark to put the margin up to 57-53 and despite a WPI bucket in the closing seconds, Wesleyan ran out the clock for the two-point victory, running the team's win streak to three games. Wesleyan got 11 points from Lucy Sprung '08 to lead the way while three others - Fourney, Kiah McAndrew-Davis '10 and Stephanie Savas '08 - contributed nine points apiece. Wesleyan will look to keep its streak alive when it heads to Mitchell College for its next outing Sat., Dec. 1 in a first-ever varsity meeting with the Pequots.
