Hitting 10 three-pointers and holding a 54-28 rebounding edge, UAlbany cruised past UMass Lowell, 87-50, Thursday night for its fourth straight victory.

“We had a phenomenal first half team defense tonight,” said UAlbany head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson. “I loved that we crashed the boards with 23 offensive rebounds, with Tammy Phillip grabbing 19 rebounds today to lead our post players, and our team dished out 24 assists.”

Shereesha Richards had her 10th double-double of the year, and fifth in her last sixth games, for UAlbany (13-3, 3-0 AE) with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Erin Coughlin earned a career-high six three-pointers on eight attempts and five assists.

“Erin [Coughlin] did a great job getting open and knocking down her threes,” said Abrahamson-Henderson.

Both Phillip and Margarita Rosario nearly had double-doubles. Phillip grabbed a career-high 19 rebounds with eight points, while Rosario had nine points and seven assists.

For UMass Lowell (2-13, 1-3 AE), Lindsay Doucette had 14 points, six rebounds and four blocks. Shannon Samuels added 12 points and six assists.

The Great Dane began firing away early, as Coughlin knocked down a couple of threes, followed by a Rosario three from a kick out as UAlbany led, 14-6.
