BRUNSWICK — Bowdoin College senior Jill Henrikson of Bath scored 25 points with nine rebounds and nine steals to lead the Polar Bear women’s basketball team to a 65-45 win over Eastern Connecticut State University Tuesday evening at Morrell Gymnasium.

Henrikson finished one steal and one rebound shy of the fourth triple- double in school history as the Polar Bears ( 15- 5) rolled to their fourth straight win.

Anna Prohl pitched in 12 points for the Polar Bears.

The Warriors (6-14) dropped their seventh straight decision despite Kristina Forsman, who scored 23 points with six rebounds in 40 minutes of play.

Bowdoin never trailed, jumping to a 15-6 lead in the early going thanks to 10 points from Henrikson in the first six minutes. The Warriors clawed back to tie the game with a 9- 0 spurt, sparked by a Danyelle Rodriguez 3-pointer, but the Polar Bears closed the half on a 12-2 run, capped by a Henrikson trifecta that pushed the lead to 37-26 at the break.

Eastern Connecticut trimmed the lead to 37- 30 after four straight points from Forsman out of halftime, but Bowdoin quickly replied with an 8-0 charge to regain a sizable edge. The Polar Bears led by as many as 26 points as Prohl scored 10 of her 12 points in the stanza.

The teams shot at nearly identical clips (Bowdoin 36.9 percent, Eastern Conn. 36.4 percent), but the Polar Bears connected on nine 3-pointers to just two for the Warriors. Bowdoin held a 44-35 edge on the glass, a 24-3 lead in bench scoring and scored 25 points off of 21 Eastern Connecticut turnovers.

Bowdoin is scheduled to return to action on Friday at Middlebury (6 p.m.).

Men’s basketball

Five Polar Bears scored in double digits, led by 22 from Will Hanley, in a 94-83 Bowdoin victory over Thomas on Tuesday evening.

In addition to his team-high 22 points, Hanley became the first Bowdoin player in 25 years to record 20 rebounds in a game, which was last achieved by Joe Williams against Babson in 1986-87. He is the eighth Bowdoin player to have 20 rebounds in a single game in school history.

Hanley got plenty of support from a balanced Bowdoin attack that included 15 points from Andrew Madlinger, 14 apiece from Bryan Hurley and Ryan O’Connell, and 12 off the bench from Wyatt Littles.

Littles and the Bowdoin bench held a 21-9 advantage in points over the Thomas subs. Thomas had four players in double figures, led by a game-high 25 points from Jarrad DeVaughn.

The Polar Bears held the lead for most of the opening half until a late Terrier run trimmed their lead to 34-33 at halftime.

Thomas took its first lead of the game on the first possession of the second half as the teams traded buckets in the early part of the period until a 10-2 Bowdoin surge, keyed by 3- pointers from O’Connell and Hurley, gave the visitors the lead for good.

Bowdoin is set to return to action on Friday night when the Polar Bears travel to topranked Middlebury (8 p.m.).
