The Memorial Sea-Hawks opened the new year right with a win over the Dalhousie Tigers, 78-45.  

The Hawks owned the first half, bolstered by incredible performances from Hallie Nickerson (#23) and Alana Short (#7). Nickerson had 14 points; Short had 13 points off 3/4 shooting from deep.  

The Tigers struggled to put up points in the first quarter, posting just five, but they had a better second quarter, finishing the half with 22. Their major flaw was the immense number of turnovers – Dalhousie had 15 turnovers and 22 points in the first twenty minutes of play.  

Memorial led at the half, 38-22.  

The second half was even worse for the Tigers, as Memorial pulled out ahead in a big way. Their full-court pressure continued to force Dalhousie into bad positions and cause turnovers in which the Hawks capitalized frequently.  

Memorial received solid contributions from Hallie Nickerson (#23, who scored a game-high 34 points. Alana Short (#7) posted a solid 17 points, finishing 3/5 from deep and 6/12 on the night. Jane Baird (#4) had a triple double with 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists – she also earned player of the game commendations. 

Bridget McSwiggan had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Tigers with Chelsea Slawter-Wright and Lia Kentzler netting nine and eight points respectively. Slawter-Wright also had nine rebounds. 

The Hawks will look to sweep the weekend series against the Tigers, as each game is worth four points in the AUS standings. All Sea-Hawks home games are available on
