Manhattan, N.Y. - The Farmingdale State women's basketball team lost a non-conference road game at 10th-ranked New York University last night. The Rams now stand at an even 3-3 on the year, while the Violets remained perfect at 8-0.

NYU shot 51% from the field, including 40% from behind the arc in the first half.

The Violets scored 11 unanswered points to start the second half to open up their largest lead of the game at 56-20.

Trailing 66-33 with 8:05 remaining, a 16-2 Farmingdale State run cut the deficit to 68-49 with less than two minutes left to play. NYU went on for the 72-51 non-conference victory.

Senior guard Camille Romero (Queens, N.Y.) recorded a team-high 17 points, while Desvignes added 14 points for the Rams. Senior guard Nicole Lanteri (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) scored six points and had a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Violets were led by sophomore center Emily Rowe (Vancouver, Wash.) who recorded a double-double with 14 points and 10 boards.
