STAFF REPORT

It’s five up and five down for Hartwick College’s women, the latest a 71-55 non-conference basketball victory at Union College on Tuesday night.

Maria Foglia poured in her college high of 26 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the floor and an 8-for-9 performance at the free throw line as Hartwick earned its fourth double-digit victory in five games.

Brittney Dumas contributed 12 points and eight rebounds, and Taylor Vonasek and Kait Veit had nine points apiece for Hartwick, which led, 37-20, at halftime.

The Hawks, off to their best start since 1990, used a 21-4 run over the final 7 minutes, 40 seconds of the first half to pull away from a 16-all tie. Christina Graziadei’s layup gave Hartwick the lead for keeps at 18-16 with 7:40 left in the half.

Foglia then scored five straight points, including a three-point play with 6:22 remaining in the half to make it 23-16.

A Dumas jumper 3:38 before halftime capped a 9-0 Hartwick run, making the score, 25-16. After Kelsey McDonald made a layup for Union, Kate Purcell (eight points) hit a three-pointer and Vonasek hit a jumper, the latter giving the Hawks a 30-18 lead with 2:30 left in the half.

Foglia then hit a pair of free throws and Veit made a three-pointer as Hartwick’s lead grew to 35-18.

Two free throws by Purcell with 46 seconds to go in the half made it 37-20.

Union (2-1) never got its deficit below seven points in the second half.

Hartwick shot 49 percent from the field, including 9-for-22 from three-point range. Foglia hit four of her five three-point attempts and Veit went 3-for-5 from beyond the arc.

The Hawks will host Oneonta State at 6 p.m. Dec. 3.
