Junior Margaux Pickell
BROOKLYN, NY - The NYU-Poly women's basketball team won it's fifth straight contest Saturday night as they cruised to a 80-39 win over Yeshiva University. NYU-poly improves to 14-5 overall and 10-3 in the Skyline Conference while Yeshiva drops to 2-16 and remains winless in conference play at 0-13.
But the real highlight of the night was junior Margaux Pickell (Howell, NJ) who had a career high 41 points and added her 17th double double with 11 rebounds. The 41 points is the most an NYU-Poly player has scored in a single contest since 2007, when NYU-Poly was formed with the merger of Polytechnic and NYU. Pickell had 25 points at the half and another 16 in the second half.
NYU-Poly returns to action Wednesday night when they play Mount Saint Mary. The Knights are currently in first place and undefeated (14-0) in the Skyline. Last time the two teams played, Mount defeated NYU-Poly in Newburgh 71-35.
