In Bowdoin's last game of the regular season, McGarry got his 10th goal and knew immediately what it meant. Meagher wore the cap in the playoffs. He believes no one looked better.

"Winning is fun," said Meagher. "But sometimes it's not fun winning. It's hard, in real time, to think about how much fun we're having when there's work to be done."

The Bowdoin women's hockey team has also been winning. The women are 9-1-1 and were ranked seventh in the country when polls came out on Monday. The men were ranked fourth . . . Bryan Hurley (Watertown, Mass.) set a school record with 17 assists in Tuesday night's 88-64 win over the University of Maine-Presque Isle as the Bowdoin College men's basketball team shot 60 percent from the Morrell Gymnasium floor. The Bowdoin men have won seven straight for an 8-2 record going into Friday night's game at home with conference foe Tufts.

ST. JOSEPH'S COLLEGE

Junior forward Lindsay Moore (Barrington, N.H.) averaged 16.0 points and 13 rebounds in two games last week to earn Great Northeast Athletic Conference recognition . . . Steve Simond's 35-point effort in a loss to Norwich University was a career high and the first time a St. Joseph's player has scored 35 points since Travis Seaver's 36-point performance against Thomas College on Jan. 19, 2000.

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MAINE

Senior Jordan Grant (Concord, N.H.) has been a consistent contributor to the women's basketball team success. Grant averaged 14.3 points, 7.75 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 3.5 steals in a 4-0 week for the Huskies.

The 5-11 senior had a career-high 22 points in a win against D'Youville. In a home win vs. the University of New England, Grant finished two assists shy of a triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds and eight helpers along with two steals and three blocked shots.

On the road at Keene, Grant notched her fifth double-double of the season with a solid 10-point, 10-rebound performance, adding two assists and two steals. She was 92.5 percent from the free throw line over four games, making 25 out of 27 shots. Grant is the Huskies' second-leading scorer, averaging 12.1 points per game, and their top rebounder, averaging 8.3 caroms per game. She is shooting a solid 45.6 percent (57 for 125) from the field and 74.6 percent (50 for 67) from the free throw line. She leads the team in steals with 39 and has 30 assists.

Junior guard Conor Sullivan (Scarborough) has led the men's basketball team to a 3-3 mark. Sullivan averaged 15.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.2 blocks per game while shooting a 47.0 percent (38 for 81) from the field. Sullivan set a career-best total during the week, scoring 21 points in a 93-83 road loss to Salem State University. In a key Little East Conference battle, Sullivan had 19 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals in a road win at Keene State, marking the first victory over the Owls on their home court since 1979.
