No Oneonta State women’s basketball player scored in double figures Saturday, but it didn’t really matter.
Ten Red Dragons contributed points to their 61-37 rout of SUNY Athletic Conference rival Potsdam, which faced a 37-10 deficit at halftime. Bryn Loomis and Kristin Pappalardo finished with nine points apiece to pace Oneonta (10-10, 7-6), which has won six of its last seven games.
With five SUNYAC games left, the Red Dragons are in the thick of a race for the final three spots in the six-team conference tournament, which will send the winner to the NCAA Division III Tournament.
This year’s tournament has only six teams and Oneonta has moved itself into the middle of a five-team pack that is vying for probably only three spots.
Grace Schilling contributed eight points, seven assists and three steals for the Red Dragons, who got a college-best eight rebounds from freshman Rebecca Nelson.
Hannah Kmiecinski’s 14 points paced Potsdam (1-19, 0-13).
