RADNOR, Pa. (CBS) — This is a great year for women’s college basketball in the Philadelphia area. Several teams are making pushes for the post-season, but right now there is no team that is hotter than Division III Cabrini College.
The 20-3 Cavaliers beat rival Gwynedd-Mercy on Wednesday night, 79-55, and that victory extended their winning streak to 15 straight games. Not bad for a program that had won 22 games in the previous two seasons.
“We have a lot of kids who have been a part of the program for the last couple of years where we’ve struggled because we’ve been young,” Cabrini head coach Kate Pearson tells KYW Newsradio. “So we knew, coming into this season, that they were going to be very driven and wanted to see a little more success than they’ve had the last two, three seasons because they have kind of put that effort in and haven’t seen the results. So it’s nice for them to see the results in the win column.”
