ROCHESTER - The top-ranked MCC women's basketball team forced 28 turnovers to key a 63-43 victory over Sullivan County Community College in the opener of the sixth annual Murph Shapiro Tournament Saturday afternoon.
The Tribunes (2-0) also held the Generals to just 25 percent shooting (14-for-56) to offset a rather cold day from the field themselves. Monroe turned the Sullivan miscues into 21 points.
Six different players scored as the Tribunes opened a 19-11 after one quarter. The lead was 33-20 at the break.
Monroe then put it away in the third, holding Sullivan to 1-of-16 from the floor and just four points.
MCC outrebounded Sullivan 55-46 on the day.
