The women will travel to URI on Sunday to restart HC hoops after the hiatus for exams.
Massey makes HC a nine point favorite (65-56) with a 76% chance for the win. Personally, I feel it may not be that close. URI is currently 1-8. They defeated UMass-Lowell to start the season but since then they have lost eight straight...to Minnesota, Samford, Jacksonville State, Dartmouth, Bryant, Providence, Marist, and MichiganState. It s an ambitious schedule, but it has been rough so far for URI.
They may see HC as a chance to stop their losing streak with a win at home.

Amy Hasenauer made her first appearance of the season, scoring 2 points in 7 minutes. If she stays healthy, and if Swords continues to improve, that will take some of the pressure off Manis, and that's a very positive development.
