B-G 77, Deposit 29
BAINBRIDGE – Jennifer Patten became the third B-G player under head coach Bob Conway to reach the 1,000-point mark for her career Saturday afternoon before her home crowd.
Patten scored her 18th point of the game on the opening basket of the second half to achieve the milestone, and she finished with a game-high 26 points. “All our kids knew about it and they were excited for her,” said Conway, who said Patten was about the only one in the building unaware of her impending achievement. “Our kids were feeding her the ball pretty good in the first half.”
The win clinched a tie for the MAC Division II title, and B-G can wrap it up with a win over second-place Oxford Tuesday.
Mariah Schaeffer added 16 and Marcie Day 15 in the B-G blowout.

Norwich 70, Johnson City 21
NORWICH – Norwich’s seniors certainly went out with a bang, as head coach Bob Branham described, in the Purple’s highest scoring effort of the season Saturday night against winless Johnson City.
Alicia Testani led with 16 points and Brooke Abbott came off the bench to score a varsity-high 11. “We shot the ball well the last two games, so hopefully this is the start of something,” Branham said. “The team is motivated and doesn’t want the season to end. They know if they play well, we can play with anyone in our section (in Class A).”
