Susan Moran earned her second double-double of the season, but it came in a losing cause as St. Joseph’s (Pa.) was defeated by Virginia Tech, 62-53, in women’s basketball last week. The loss snapped an eight-game St. Joe’s win streak. The sophomore forward from Tullamore, Co. Offaly, led the scoring for the Hawks with 24 points, while cradling 11 rebounds. Earlier in the week, St. Joe’s disposed of Duquesne, 57-51, as Moran posted 14 points and seven caroms. The Hawks are 15-3.

Manhattan College’s women’s team is off to an 11-4 start and freshman guard Siobhan Kilkenny ranks fifth on the team in minutes played per game with 22. The Castlebar, Co. Mayo, product is averaging 7.5 points per game, along with 2.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists. Kilkenny recently had six points and two rebounds in a 76-60 loss to Rider; two points and four rebounds in a 76-60 victory over Canisius; eight points and three assists in a 91-79 loss to Fairfield, and eight points, two assists and two blocks in a 69-68 triumph over Siena.

Men’s basketball

Teikyo Post lost a 69-67 heartbreaker to Caldwell College on two foul shots with just a second showing on the board. Sophomore guard Peter Madsen from Dublin had 20 of Post’s points. Aside from two free throws, he lofted all his shots in from three-point range. Teikyo Post fell to 3-13.

Foul trouble limited Gary Dredge to only 13 minutes of playing time in Azusa Pacific’s 97-72 victory over Fresno Pacific. Dredge, a 6-foot-9 sophomore center from Clondalkin, Co. Dublin, picked up his third personal early in the contest. Despite the short stint on the court, he scored four points, grabbed five rebounds, blocked one shot and accounted for two steals. Azusa is 15-3.
