BONNIES FALL SHORT IN TITLE CONTEST

Unable to overcome cold shooting and turnovers, St. Bonaventure's women's basketball team dropped a 77-45 decision to Evansville (Ind.) in the championship of the Hampton Inn and Fazoli's Classic at Indiana University on Monday.

The Bonnies, who had won four in a row, shot 35 percent (17 of 49) from the floor and committed 28 turnovers.

Evansville used an 11-0 run in the second half to pull away at the 16:27 mark of the second half. Junior Melissa Fazio (eight points, seven rebounds) and sophomore Angela Scott (nine points, six rebounds) earned All-Tournament team honors for the Bonnies.

Elsewhere, Niagara senior guard Sheryl Klick has been named MAAC Player of the Week for the week ending Dec. 19. Klick was 8 of 14 from the floor and finished with 28 points to lead NU over Colgate, 83-57, Sunday.

FIELD HOCKEY: Cortland freshman Julie Gentner (Williamsville South) has been named to the NCAA Division III All-American team. Gentner becomes the first Cortland freshman to earn the nationwide honor. Her 31 points (12 points, seven assists) also made her the first freshman since 1986 to lead the Red Dragons in scoring. Cortland (14-5) reached the Division III final four. While playing for South, Gentner was a two-time All-State and All-Western New York pick.

MEN'S BASKETBALL: Sophomore point guard Daryl Greene of Niagara has been named Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the Week ending Dec. 19. Freshman Luis Villafane earned Rookie of the Week honors for the same week. Greene averaged 20.5 points in leading the Purple Eagles to a 2-0 week. Villafane had two dunks and two blocks to spark a 16-4 run during Niagara's 81-71 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore Sunday.
