JERSEY CITY, NJ (NJCUGothicKnights.com) | New Jersey City University junior forward Maxine Kaminski (Kearny, NJ/Kearny) recorded her second career double-double, but Montclair State University used a stifling defense and hot second half shooting while turning 25 NJCU turnovers into 23 points as the Red Hawks downed the Gothic Knights, 68-51 in a New Jersey Athletic Conference women's basketball game on Wednesday night at the John J. Moore Athletics and Fitness Center on 'Coach Charlie Brown Court.'
