University of Massachusetts Amherst women’s basketball team faced off against St. Bonaventure on Saturday, Jan. 26. The UMass Minutewomen started off to a great start, making layups, retrieving rebounds, and playing solid defense. Despite the St. Bonaventure Bonnies making great runs, the Minutewomen fought to either keep their lead or to stay within single-digits of the Bonnies.

In the fourth quarter, the game’s dynamic shifted when the Bonnies made crucial plays to make it on top. The game ended with a one-point deficit—64 to 63 Bonnies—leaving the Minutewomen with an upsetting loss. Turnovers, missed easy layups, and several fouls got the best of the Minutewomen.
