The UAlbany women’s basketball team dominated the paint on Wednesday to earn a 70-60 road victory over Big East opponent Providence, pushing the Great Danes’ record to 6-0, the best start in the program’s Division I history.

“We played hard in a very phys­ical game, and we handled it well,” says coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson. “Sarah [Royals] was a huge spark for us, and we handled their go-to players well.”

The Great Danes dominated down low, outrebounding Prov­idence, 47-33, led by Tammy Phillip grabbing 13 boards with seven points.

“The key was boxing out, communicating and hard work,” said Phillip. “We earned a hard win on the road, and it is awesome being 6-0.”

Shereesha Richards led UAlbany in scoring for the fifth consecutive game, earning 19 points on 9-for-14 shooting with nine rebounds and five steals. Megan Craig earned her first-career double double with 15 points and 10 boards, blocking three shots.

For the Friars, Karin Robinson led the team with 16 points on 7-for-16 shooting and three steals. UAlbany held Tori Rule, who was averaging over 20 points a game, to just five points.
