The UMBC women's basketball team fell to 0-14 last night, allowing four New Hampshire players to score in double figures in a 65-54 loss to the visiting Wildcats at RAC Arena.

UMBC, 0-4 against America East opponents in its first season in the league, trailed 29-19 at halftime and fell behind by as many as 16 in the second half before rallying. Maria Brown's three-pointer with 5:50 to play cut New Hampshire's lead to 50-43, but UMBC came no closer.

Goucher 71, Salisbury 68: Stephanie Tolbert scored 27 points and Kate Guggino added 20 to help the visiting Gophers (8-6, 2-3 Capital Athletic Conference) get past the Sea Gulls (9-7, 3-2).

Goucher built a 12-point halftime lead and never trailed in the second half.

Catholic 79, St. Mary's 53: Mary Kate Lenz led all scorers with 16 points, but the Seahawks (4-11, 1-4 Capital Athletic Conference) fell to the visiting Cardinals (11-3, 4-1).
