Sarah Sweazy

The Fredonia women's basketball team improved to 4-1 in conference play and 9-3 overall, cruising to 74-54 win at Potsdam. Sarah Sweazy (Rochester, N. Y./Rush Henrietta) led the Devils with 14 points off the bench as the freshman showed her scoring touch over the weekend. She had 13 point in a win over Plattsburgh on Friday. Sweazy also led the Devils with three steals.

She was supported by senior Sabrina Macaulay (Newark, N.Y./Newark) with 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Junior Alexis Cheatham (Lockport/Lockport) added 10 points and three assists and was three of five from three-point range. Freshman Jenna Einink (Mayville/Chautauqua Lake) added eight points and six rebounds.

Laura Coleman had 13 points to pace the Bears (1-9 overall, 0-4 SUNYAC).

The Devils built a modest 14-10 lead after the first quarter, then opened up with a 7-0 run to start the second quarter. Then with 6:33 left in the second, the Devils' lead was 24-14. From that point, they would go on a 10-0 run. Threes by Cheatham and Jamie Curry and a pair of layups by Macaulay accounted for the offense and a 34-14 advantage.

By halftime, they were in control with a 41-22 lead.

The second half was evenly played, with Fredonia outscoring the hosts, 33-32.

Fredonia's biggest lead of 24 came at the 7:33 mark of the third. A three by Cheatham and layup by Sweazy on consecutive possessions put the Devils up 48-24.

Offensively, the Devils shot 51 percent from the field and were six of 15 on three pointers. They were 16 of 24 (67 percent) from the free-throw line. Potsdam was limited to 30 percent shooting, including seven of 25 from long range. They hit on seven of 11 free throws.

Fredonia had a 41-36 advantage in rebounds.

The Devils return to Steele Hall this weekend to take on Geneseo on Friday and Brockport Saturday.
