CHARLESTOWN, Mass. ---- The Massasoit women's basketball team hung with top seed and No. 1 nationally ranked Roxbury for a quarter, but the Tigers pulled away in the second half to claim the MCCAC Championship, 87-54 on Sunday.
Massasoit (9-14) was paced by freshman Geornaisha Silva-Moore (Brockton) who finished with 20 points, four assists and three steals.
The Warriors fought with the Tigers in the opening period, tying the score at 20-all with 1:58 left in the first off an Elias 3-pointer.
That would be as close as Massasoit would get against Roxbury (20-2), as the Tigers outscored the Warriors 30-11 through the second quarter. Roxbury led 50-31 at the half.
Massasoit will get a rematch against Roxbury at the Region 21 Tournament, next Saturday at Springfield Tech with tip set for Noon.
