With just twenty seconds to go, Hopkins scored the go ahead basket against Holyoke Catholic on a left-handed lay-up from Maddie Stevens. Stevens was left wide open, giving Nicole Morrison a clear path for the inbound pass. The Hawks were down seven points with just four minutes left on the clock, when Stevens hit a 3-pointer to provide her team with the momentum needed for the 38-36 upset win over the 3rd seeded Gaels. The next game time has yet to be announced, but the Hawks will be playing the semi-final game at The Cage for the first time since Hopkins’ last 1000 point scorer, Erica Hunter, led the Hawks there in 2006.
