Rider Looks to Tame the Tigers Tuesday Night
LAWRENCEVILLE—Fresh off a 62-48 win over LIU Brooklyn on November 14, the Rider University women’s basketball team is back in action Tuesday night when the Broncs host Mercer County rival Princeton University, beginning at 7 p.m., in Alumni Gymnasium.
Rider (1-2) is led by senior MyNeshia McKenzie (Springfield, Pa./Springfield (Delco)), a preseason All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference First Team selection, who is averaging 20.0 points and 12.0 rebounds per game.
McKenzie has recorded a ‘double-double’ in all three games this season and has six ‘double-double’ efforts in a row, dating back to the 2012-13 season.
Another of the Bronc money players is junior Lashay Banks (Philadelphia, Pa./Prep Charter) who is averaging 11.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. Banks cashed in a career-high 21 points and pulled down eight rebounds against LIU Brooklyn.
Princeton (1-1), the four-time defending Ivy League champion, is coming off an 81-58 win over Marist College on November 17.
In that game, the Tigers put five players (including four starters) in double-digits, led by Kristen Helmstetter who scored 18 points against the Red Foxes.
Rider and Princeton last met on November 20, 2012 when the Tigers defeated the Broncs 88-42 behind 17 points and 11 rebounds from Niveen Rasheed who is now playing professionally in Greece.
Tonight is the 31st meeting between Princeton and Rider with the Tigers holding a 22-8 series lead. Rider last defeated the Tigers 45-42 during the 2007-08 season with Amanda Sepulveda hitting a three-pointer at the buzzer in Alumni Gym.
Tuesday night is the second of three home games in a row as Rider will host former East Coast Conference rival Delaware on November 24 at 2 p.m.
