Meanwhile, a majority of the Bison offense continued to run through Dotson. The sophomore hit 20 points with 12 minutes still remaining. Up to that point, Dotson had 10 of her team's first 12 points in the second half. Dotson now has three career 20-point games, all of which have come this season. Saturday also gave the active forward her first set of back-to-back contests of at least 20 points after she totaled a team-best 22 against Cornell on Wednesday. Only teammate Shelby Romine has more 20-point games this season, having hit that mark four times already.
Despite the low score, Bucknell was able to hit the shots it did get off. The Bison were 25-for-52 (.481) from the field for the game. The Bulldogs beat their clip, however, shooting 31-for-61 (.508).
Dotson's 22 led all players. Horbatuck finished with seven points and a game-high nine rebounds. Voss also chipped in seven points.
Leading the way for Yale was Megan Vasquez with 16 points, while Sarah Halejian added 15 and Zenab Keita and Janna Graf each had 14. No Bulldog had more than five rebounds as the Bison won the battle of the boards 34-25.
With the 20-point loss, Bucknell suffered one of the largest margins of defeat in the series with Yale, second only to last season when it fell to the Bulldogs by 21. The Bulldogs have now won each of the last four against the Bison.
