Every time the New York women's basketball team wins, they are setting a new record for the program. The team continued their amazing success this season by defeating Hudson Valley opponent, College of New Rochelle, 75 to 71, to extend their longest winning streak to three games and improve their record to (5-4, 1-0) on the season.

Having won only two games in their inaugural season last year, the Knights have not only eclipsed their historical win total so far, but have also secured their first tournament championship, and have a three-game winning streak this season as well.

Both teams came out with a fast pace and high energy style of play that entertained the Wellness Center crowd with both playing an up tempo style that prevented either team from taking control of the game. The biggest lead of the first half was seven held by Berkeley with five minutes to go in the first half.

CNR quickly erased that lead with a 10-3 run by the Blue Angels and tied the game up at 33 with a minute to go. Berkeley would end the half up 38-35.

In the second half, CNR came out and took control of the game to take a 56-47 lead. The Blue Angels could not hold the lead as the size of Berkeley took over. Berkeley out rebounded CNR 61-41 including 34 offensive rebounds that led to 19 second chance points. A jumper by junior guard Rachel Thomas (Murry Bergtraum/Brooklyn, NY) off of an offensive rebound from sophomore center Rahinet Koti (Walton/Bronx, NY) gave Berkeley the lead with two minutes to go in the game.

The Knights were led by junior guard Aiyesha Brown (John Adams/Jamaica, NY) with 31 points and 5 assists and Thomas with 23 points.
