Michelle Fahy made her first career start for Iona in a 58-55 win over Marist. The Galway freshman chipped in with nine points on 3-of-12 shooting from the floor and 3-for-4 from the foul line. She also had eight rebounds and two steals.

Fahy, who prepped at Calasantius College, then scored 14 points in the Gaels’ 80-61 loss to Loyola, Md. She had trouble finding the bucket from the field, nailing only 2 of 12 shots, but was perfect from the foul line, converting all 10 opportunities. She also managed seven rebounds (five offensive), two steals and one block. Fahy’s average of 5.9 rebounds leads the team. She is third in the scoring column with 10.6 points per game. Iona is 4-8 overall and 1-3 against Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference foes.

Loyola made its New York road trip a success by also downing Manhattan College, 63-51. Siobhan Kilkenny led the Jaspers with 16 points. She shot 7-for-16 from the floor (2-for-6 from 3-point land). The Castlebar, Co. Mayo, sophomore also had four rebounds, two assists and two steals. She fouled out with less than a minute to play. Kilkenny, who began the season on the bench, is averaging 7.2 points per game for the 7-5 Jaspers.

St. Joseph’s of Philadelphia ran up against a tough slate of non-conference foes over the last two months, but the Hawks are finding the living easier now that the Atlantic-10 Conference schedule has kicked in. They won a pair of games in New England last week to improve to 8-5. Junior forward Susan Moran was held to a season-low 11 points in a 66-54 victory over Massachusetts. The Tullamore, Co. Offaly, product was 3-for-6 from the field and 5-for-6 from the stripe. She also had five rebounds in 21 minutes of play.

Moran was then the game’s high scorer in a 55-34 triumph over Rhode Island. She connected on six of 12 field goal attempts and was 3-for-4 from the foul line. Moran also managed five steals and four rebounds. She leads St. Joe’s in scoring with 21.4 points per game and in rebounding with 6.9 rebounds per game. Her entire scoring output has come from close range. In fact, she hasn’t attempted a 3-point field goal this season.
