Amherst cruises against Farmingdale State

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- Megan Robertson and Ali Doswell posted double-doubles to lead third-ranked Amherst to its 14th consecutive win on Monday night as the Jeffs defeated Farmingdale State 77-50 in a non-conference road game.

Amherst improved to 14-0 on the season while dropping the Rams to 5-6.

Robertson scored a team-high 16 points on 8 of 13 shooting and pulled in a game-high 12 rebounds to lead the Jeffs. Doswell recorded 14 points and grabbed 10 boards and Marley Giddins joined them in double-figures with 10 points. She also added another eight rebounds as Amherst outrebounded Farmingdale State 50-29.

As a team, Amherst shot 50 percent (31-for-62) from the field, 52.4 percent (11-for-21) from downtown, and 100 percent (4-for-4) from the line.

Camille Romero led all scorers with a game-high 21 points for the Rams while Nicky Young added 12. The Jeffs held Farmingdale State to 29.3 percent (17-for-58) shooting from the floor, 0-for-3 from behind the arc, and 53.3 percent (16-for-30) at the line.

The Rams scored the first basket of the game but it was their only lead as Amherst retaliated and scored 10 in a row following a 3-pointer from Cheyenne Pritchard. After a layup from Pritchard several minutes later, the Jeffs held their first double-digit lead at the 13:47 mark, up 15-5.

Amherst led by as much as 15 in the first half but a jumper from Romero with three seconds to go before the break cut the deficit to 13 as the Jeffs held a 39-26 lead at halftime.

In the opening minutes of the second half, Doswell gave the Jeffs a 14-point lead followed by a 3-pointer from Haley Zwecker as they led 44-27 with 18:19 remaining in regulation. It was all Amherst the rest of the way as Jaime Renner hit one from downtown to give the Jeffs a 30-point cushion at the 1:55 mark, their largest lead of the game, as they cruised to the 27-point victory.
