She grabbed 10 boards against the Blue Demons as well, the first time she’d reached double-figures in rebounding this season.She’ll have another stout test on Thursday when the Orange face off against No. 20 Minnesota and Kenisha Bell, the second-consecutive Nancy Lieberman Award watch list candidate that Mangakahia will face.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on November 26, 2018 at 4:47 pm Contact Eric: erblack@syr.edu | @esblack34last_img
