Georgia Bourikas and Jenni-Rose DiCecco continue to be consistent contributors to the Rams' offense. Bourikas' 14.8 ppg anchors the squad's 69.1 ppg with DiCecco falling in a close second with 14.3 ppg. 

Alexis Hackett pulls down 11.1 rpg to lead Suffolk's 43.3 rpg effort on the glass. Bourikas adds 6.9 rpg, while Jordan Hipwell provides 6.4 rpg.

Johnson & Wales suffered a 72-55 setback at Albertus Magnus, 72-55, to slide to 6-2 against conference competition and 10-7 overall. 

As a team, the Wildcats are scoring 65.4 ppg with the upperclassmen pair of Raquel Pederzani and Ally Mishol leading the way with 15.3 ppg and 14.1 ppg, respectively. Sarah Duryea is on the verge of averaging double digits as well, providing 9.4 ppg. 

Mishol paces the pack on the boards, pulling down 6.6 rpg with Duryea chipping in 5.2 rpg.

Suffolk split the regular season series with the Wildcats last season to move to 16-8 all-time versus Johnson & Wales.


Georgia Bourikas looks to stamp her name in the Rams' record book this season. The senior is just 42 points shy of the coveted 1,000-point milestone. The guard from Hull, Massachusetts, also looks to move her current fourth-place standing on the all-time treys made list with 127 up, while she also has the chance to seal up spots on the all-time assists (191) and blocks (38) list.

Suffolk takes just one day off before returning to action at Regan Gymnasium. In a Rams' basketball doubleheader Saturday, Jan. 27, the women's team opens the action at 1 p.m. versus conference powerhouse Saint Joseph's (Maine) with the men's team facing Mount Ida at 3 p.m.
