Freshman Colleen Kelly (Rochester, NY) netted 12 points, dished out four assists and grabbed four steals to help the Bears gain their ninth Ivy league win.

The Bears will play in their final game of the season tomorrow as they host the Harvard Crimson. Harvard is currently undefeated and stands alone in first place in the Ivy League. Tip-off is at 7:00 p.m. in the Pizzitola Gymnasium.
