Women’s Basketball Wins CUNYAC Championship

BROOKLYN COLLEGE –For the first time since 1980, the Brooklyn College women’s basketball team won the City University of New York Athletic Conference (CUNYAC) Championship, defeating the College of Staten Island (CSI) 59-50 at City College’s Nat Holman Gymnasium on Friday.

Channel Jemmott’s play in the second half carried Brooklyn, as her second-half performance of 10 points and eight rebounds kept her team in the game when it mattered most. Despite Staten Island’s best attempts at making a comeback, Jemmott’s rebounds and put-back baskets kept Brooklyn competitive.
