No. 21 Ramapo rebounded from last night's loss with a 96-88 win against Mass-Dartmouth.

Farmingdale State improved to 5-5 and handed Mount St. Vincent its first loss of the season, rolling over the Dolphins 104-75. The Dolphins shot 9-for-38 from three-point range in defeat.

In women's action, New York University lost for the five time in six games, falling at home to Connecticut College 71-70 in overtime. The Camels led for most of the game but had to get the last four points in regulation to force the extra period. Connecticut College improved to 5-6. Middlebury won the women's game against Plattsburgh State as well, 70-61, to move to 7-1.
