The University of the District of Columbia Lady Firebirds women's basketball team won its third straight game and ninth win in 10 games after easily beating Daemen College, 91-73, on Feb. 15 in Washington, D.C.

The win advanced UDC to a 17-4 record, good for a tie with LIU for first place in the East Coast Conference (ECC).

UDC used a 23-5 scoring run early in the first half to spark their blowout over Daeman. The Lady Firebirds’ lead never fell below double-digits from that point forward as they ran away with the easy win.

Senior center Milena Bubnjevic came off the bench to score a team-high 18 points with 8 rebounds for the Lady Firebirds. Junior forward Dennika Brent added 16 points and 8 rebounds for UDC.

Daeman’s Lindsey Stoddard scored a game-high 26 points in the loss.

UDC’s next action comes on Feb. 19 with a matchup against ECC opponent, Queens College in Queens, N.Y
