In the first game Castleton beat Husson 62-55.

Castleton outrebounded the Eagles 30 to 20, but turned the ball over 17 times to Husson’s 11.
The Spartans continued their momentum into the second game against Maine Maritime.
Castleton was poised at the line sinking 92.9 percent of their free throws on 13 of 14. This proved to be difference maker as the Spartans and Mariners were nearly deadlocked in most statistical categories.
Meghan O’Sullivan led the way with 16-points followed by Jade Desroches with 12.
Leonard weighed in on how the team will approach the rest of the season.
“To establish that we are a defensive team by continuing to bring the same consistent effort and enthusiasm every time we step on the court,” Leonard said.
The team improves to 17-2 overall and 12-0 in the NAC.
