Yale meets Quinnipiac in women's action today

Tickets for the annual Quinnipiac-Yale women's basketball can be pruchsed for just $2 today. The tip-off is scheduled for 4 p.m at the TD Bank Sports Center and this should be a good one. Yale is coming off a dominant 72-41 win over NEC ream St. Francis, N.Y.
Freshman guard Sarah Halejian scored 14 points, her highest output in her short Yale career, to help lead Yale to the win. She also matched a season-high with three rebounds and added two steals in the victory. Thanks to that performance, Halejian was named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week Monday afternoon.

"Sarah is a gifted offensive player and is becoming a very strong defender as well," said Chris Gobrecht, the Joel E. Smilow, Class of 1954, Head Coach of Women's Basketball. "It is great to be able to get such significant contributions from our freshmen."

In her fourth start of the season, Halejian scored eight of her 14 points in the second half, helping the Bulldogs outscore the Terriers 44-20 in the second half. Halejian scored her 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer and a 1-for-1 showing at the free-throw line. She was 3-for-4 from the floor in the second half, including a perfect 1-for-1 from 3-point range and 1-for-1 from the line.

Today's game can be seen on cable sports network NESN.
