AUBURNDALE, Mass. - Pittsfield's Courtney McLaughlin scored a season best 25 points on Monday to lead the MCLA women's basketball team past the Lasell Lasers, 85-72.
The Trailblazers (4-2) rode a torrid first half, shooting 68 percent, to a commanding 53-31 halftime lead. Lasell (3-3) cut the deficit to ten points on two separate occasions but ultimately could not claw their way back.
MCLA sprinted out of the gate on the heels of McLaughlin as they went on to a 24-18 lead after one quarter and continued that scoring pace with a 29-point outburst in the second to pull away.
McLaughlin went 10-for-18 from the floor. She added four steals and three assists. Ashley Clawson put together her best game of the season, tallying 17 points and three assists. She shot a solid 6-for-9 from the field. Kayla Hotaling added 15 points and a game best six assists while Courtney Durivage scored 10 points and pulled down 7 rebounds.
MCLA cooled off in the second half but still managed to shoot a season best 55 percent from the field.  Their full court pressure forced Lasell into 22 turnovers and converted them into 31 points. The Trailblazers shared the basketball well, assisting on 19 of 33 made field goals.
The Trailblazers return home on Wednesday evening when they host Utica at 6 p.m. in the Amsler Campus Center Gym.
