Niagara stuns UB 75-62

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Niagara women’s basketball team picked up its second win of the season, a 75-62 victory over the University at Buffalo Monday night at the Gallagher Center.

The win snaps a three game skid for NU.

Trailing 6-4 early in the first quarter, Victoria Rampado spalshed home a three pointer to put the Purple Eagles up 7-6 and they never looked back.  Rampado finished with a game high 27 points while Kaylee Stroemple added 19 — 10 of which came in the final quarter of play.

Grand Island native Cassie Oursler led the Bulls (8-2) with 16 points.

The big difference in the game came at the charity stripe. Niagara went 19-for-20 while the Bulls converted nine of their 15 attempts.

Niagara returns to action Dec. 22 against Colgate while the Bulls hit the court Thursday when they travel to St. John’s. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
