BROCKPORT, N.Y. – Visiting Morrisville State College women’s basketball shot a mere 21 percent in the second half as host SUNY Brockport picked up the 73-63 non-conference victory Friday night in Brockport.

Morrisville State drops to 1-7 overall, while Brockport picks up just their second win of the season, improving to 2-7.
