Kaitlyn Cresencia (New Providence, Soph.) made two free throws with 11 seconds left on the game clock to salt a 64-60 win for Connecticut College over visiting Nichols on Monday. A 5-7 swingwoman out of New Providence High, Cresencia totaled eight points for the game, making three of seven field goal attempts and two of three foul shots. The winning Camels improved to 9-12.

Caroline Murphy (Chatham, Jr.) was good for another double-double as Gettysburg defeated Franklin & Marshall, 49-41, at home on Wednesday. The 6-1 center out of Chatham High led the Bullets offensive attack with a game-high 16 points, which came on 5-for-16 shooting from the field and 6-for-8 from the foul line. Her 13 rebounds were also co-high with a teammate for the contest. Her four assists and three rejections were also highs for Gettysburg (16-6, 13-4 Centennial Conference).

Tracy Borsinger (Chatham, Sr.) scored 14 points as Middlebury whipped Lyndon State, 75-47, in a Tuesday home game. Borsinger, a 6-foot guard who prepped at Villa Walsh, knocked down five of 20 field goal attempts, including two of 11 from long range, plus her two free throws. The Panthers are 12-10.


Stevens Tech starters Russ Thompson (West Orange, Sr.) and Patrick Sabatino (Westfield, Soph.) both shot over 50 percent from the field as the Ducks downed Baruch, 70-67, in New York City on Wednesday.

The Ducks ran their record to 18-3 with the win.

Andy Charles (West Orange, Jr.) came up one rebound shy of another double-double, but chances are he didn't mind as Centenary prevailed, 52-48, over Immaculata in Hackettstown on Wednesday. The 6-5 forward out of Montclair High scored 13 points, connecting on four of nine field goal attempts and five of seven free throws. His nine rebounds were high for the Cyclones (13-10, 10-6 Colonial States Athletic Conference).

A number of employers dangle a lump sum offer to employees in part to remove future liabilities from their balance sheets. It’s tempting for ...
