Shinall Explodes with Career-High 30 Points Gabelman Ties Single Game School Record with 23 Rebounds NEW LONDON, Conn.--Senior Jenn Shinall (Redding, Conn.) exploded with a career-high 30 points and Tara Gabelman tied a Connecticut College single game record with 23 rebounds to go along with 17 points as Connecticut College continued improved to 12-2 (3-1 NESCAC) with an 81-72 victory against Williams College, the 18th ranked team in the nation. The Ephs (14-2) suffer just their second setback of the season and are 2-2 in conference action. Shinall was 6-for-8 from three point distance and 10-for-12 from the charity stripe. Gabelman racked up 13 of her 23 rebounds in the second stanza in her ninth double-double of the season. She ties the single game rebounding record with Esty Wood Satran '93, who set the record back in 1990. Kacie Quick (Winchester, Mass.) chipped in with nine points off the bench. Carlee Smith (Willimantic, Conn.) tallied eight point and nine assists for the Camels. Jill Greenberg (Westwood, Mass.) finished with 21 points and eight assists to lead the visitors. Danny Rainer (Marlborough, Mass.) added 18 points and nine rebounds for the Ephs. Ellen Cook (Eugene, Ore.) reached double-digits with 10 points. Shinall carried the hot hand early, scoring 16 points in the first half. The Camels took their largest lead of the opening half when Kaitlyn Cresencia (New Providence, N.J.) delivered a nifty looking bounce pass for a deuce that vaulted the Camels out to a 40-33 lead. The Camels carried a 40-34 advantage into the break. In the second stanza, the Camels took a commanding 65-54 lead when Shinall buried her sixth triple of the night with 6:58 remaining. However, the Ephs battled back and used a pair of free throw from Ellen Cook (Eugene, Ore.) to trim the deficit to 73-69 with 50 seconds left. But the Camels took care of business on the foul line to close out the 81-72 victory.
