North Branch, NJ – On Saturday, January 27th the RVCC Women's Basketball Team defeated Rowan College at Burlington County by a final score of 72-60.

The other Lion in double figures was Megan Mack who had all 14 of her points in the first half. Moira Phillips continued to be a factor on the boards as she finished with 9 rebounds and 2 points.
