WATERVILLE, Maine --- Despite a collegiate-high 26 points from Colby College's Brooke Chandor, Bowdoin College's Kaitlin Donahoe shot 11-for-17 from the field on the way to a game-high 28 points and contributed six rebounds and four assists to lead the Polar Bears an 82-71 women's basketball victory in New England Small College Athletic Conference play.

 
The Polar Bears moved to 10-8 overall and 2-4 in conference play, while Colby fell to 7-11 overall and 1-5 in the league.
 
Donahoe and Colby's Brooke Chandor put on an offensive show in the high-scoring game. Chandor was 10-for-18 from the field and hit 6-for-13 from 3-point range to score 26 points. She also had seven rebounds.
 
Bowdoin's Shannon Brady was tough inside with 16 points on 7-for-10 shooting, with seven rebounds and five blocked shots. Megan Phelps added 14 points and a game-high nine assists to go along with two blocks. Sara Binkhorst was 4-for-5 from 3-point range and scored all 13 of her points in the second half.
 
Diana Manduca chipped in 15 points, dished five assists, and had three steals for the Mules. Carylanne Wolfington had nine of her 11 points in the second half, while Jacky McLaughlin dished a team-high six assists and had six points.
 
The Mules got off to a fine start and led 15-11 with 12:49 left in the first half. Bowdoin, however, received seven points from Donahoe and went on a 14-0 run to take a 25-15 lead with 6:56 remaining. The Polar Bears moved the margin to 15 points before Colby cut the lead to 43-33 at halftime.
 
Binkhorst's 3-point shots were the key to the first 10 minutes of the second half. The Mules consistently had any chance of a scoring run slowed down by four timely 3-pointers by Binkhorst. Colby got as close as six points at 61-55 when Chandor nailed a 3-point shot with 10:18 to go. 
 
With the Polar Bears up 69-62 with 5:48 to play, Bowdoin went on a 7-0 run capped off by a Donahoe 3-point shot to go up by 14 points at 76-62 with 3:50 remaining. The Mules got the lead down to eight points three times in the final 2:30 of play, but could not get closer.

Bowdoin shot 57 percent (29-for-51) from the field and held a slight 34-31 rebound advantage. The two teams combined for 41 assists on 55 made field goals.
