Nyack Women's Hoops travelled to face Virginia State in a non-conference match on Friday, November 27th.  The Warriors, despite rallying from a 21 point deficit, fell six points shy of Virginia State in the final minutes.  With the loss, Nyack regresses to a 2-3 record for the 2015-2016 campaign.

How It Happened:
Senior Jamie McKeither (Laurel, MD) tied one player from Virginia State with the most points of the night at 20; nearly averaging 1 point per minute played..  McKeither also achieved 1 assist and 1 steal for the Warriors as well as 5 rebounds.  Senior Raven Makins contributed 18 poiints to the Warriors effort and a team high of 9 rebounds.  Makins also manufactured the team highs in assists, with 5, and steals, with 2.  Senior Tori Trador (Seminole, FL) and Junior Jessica Logemann (Seminole, FL) each added 10 points to the Warriors score as well as 5 rebounds and 4 rebounds, respectively, while Trador managed 2 assists across 33 minutes of play.
