Framingham State closed the gap to 20-13 at intermission.

In the second half, the Rams pulled to within six (35-29) after a jumper by junior forward Emily Clark (Melrose, MA) with 9:26 remaining in regulation, but Curry went on to score 18 of the game’s final 25 points to secure the victory.

Scrubb led the Colonels with a game-high 15 points. Sophomore forward Hailey Rafferty (Worcester, MA) chipped in with 10. Curry was led on the glass by senior forward Cortney Robinson (Brockton, MA) with a season-high 14 rebounds.
