Bentley secures regular-season perfection

WALTHAM, Mass. -- For the first time in 22 years and the second time in program history, Bentley completed its regular season schedule with a perfect record.

The nation's top-ranked Division II team, now 26-0 overall and 21-0 conference, shot 55 percent overall, knocked down seven of nine from three-point land and committed only eight turnovers en route to a 100-57 Northeast-10 Conference win against Franklin Pierce on Tuesday night at the Dana Center.

Graduate student and All-Region guard Courtney Finn powered the Falcons with 22 points, matching her uniform number, and Bentley also received 18 points from All-America senior forward Lauren Battista and 16 off the bench from freshman forward Jen Gemma.

Bentley established control from the start, using a full-court press to vault out to leads of 14-0 after four minutes and 25-2 after eight.

Bentley, which reached the century mark for the first time this season, was a plus-11 on the boards (38-27) and committed 11 less turnovers with FPU losing the ball 19 times, resulting in 17 Falcon points. Free throws were also heavily in the Falcons' favor with coach Barbara Stevens' team finishing 23 of 32, as compared to FPU's 13 of 17.
