It was the first time the Golden Griffins had beaten Saint Peter’s in four years and the win was the fourth in the last five games for Canisius, pushing their record over .500 to 12-11 (6-7 MAAC). The loss broke a five-game win streak for the Peacocks.

Alyssa Fenyn (Newark) matched her
collegiate scoring mark with 17
points against Wake Forest.
   It isn’t March yet, but you wonder if the Virginia Tech women would just like to get this season over with so they can start fresh next year. On Sunday, Wake Forest came to Blacksburg with a nine-game losing streak for road games.
   Tech had lost its last nine games period.
   Something had to give.
   Unfortunately, it was the Hokies. Although they made a charge at the Demon Deacons in the second half, the Hokies had already allowed Wake to get ahead by 19 points. The game ended with a 60-55 Hokies loss, but sophomore guard Alyssa Fenyn (Newark) again proved that she is someone the team should be building around.
   Alyssa scored 17 points – that ties her collegiate career high and is her fifth game in a row in double figures (on a team that has trouble getting players in double figures). She also snared four rebounds and made a team-high three assists.
   Tech is 9-14 (0-9 ACC).
