CAZENOVIA, N.Y. – Four Wolves were in double figures for Keuka College as they defeated conference foe Cazenovia College 77-64 in Women's Basketball on Saturday.

Keuka College (3-4, 1-3 NEAC) will return home for the first time in nearly two months as the Wolves host Wells College on Wednesday night at the JMW Recreation and Athletics Center.

Sophomore Lauren Anten led Keuka College with a game-high 20 points in the win. Also in double-figures for the Green and Gold was Tiffany Binion with 14 points, Courtney Boyea with 11 points, and Katie Stuart with 10 points.

The Wolves shot 50% from the floor in the game and were balanced in their three-point shooting. Seven different players drained a three in the game for the Wolves. Keuka College also passed the ball well, totaling 18 assists in the win.

Cazenovia held an 18-15 lead after the first quarter and grew their lead to eight points, 25-17, early in the second quarter, but Keuka College responded with a 13-0 run. Lauren Anten made a jumper and Tiffany Binion followed that up with a traditional three-point play. Freshman Britta Berguson followed that up with a layup and Katie Stuart had a three-point play of her own as the run continued. Keuka's streak ended with a three pointer by Berguson as Keuka led 30-25 halfway through the second. The half was topped by Abby Hess, who made a layup at the buzzer as the Wolves led the Wildcats 43-35 at the break.

Keuka College remained ahead, pushing their lead to as many as 15 points in the quarter. The Wolves went 4-6 from deep in the frame, including a three by Katie Stuart in the final seconds. Keuka led 65-50 going into the fourth.

Cazenovia attempted to cut into the lead, but Keuka maintained their advantage. The Wildcats went on a 6-0 run to open the fourth, but the nine-point margin was as close as they would make it. Keuka College held on to earn their first conference win of the season, defeating Cazenovia College 77-64.
