The River Hawks best month of the season came in December, when UMass Lowell posted a 3-3 record, including an overtime win against Colgate and a come-from-behind win against Fairleigh Dickinson.
UMass Lowell outscored FDU, 23-11, in the fourth quarter to squeak out a 61-55 victory, led by three players who turned in double figures.

During the season, two DI program records fell on the court, as Kayla Gibbs and Nicole Hayner saw their hard work payoff.
From November 20 to February 1, Gibbs reached double-digits in 19 consecutive games, surpassing Lindsey Doucette’s streak of 16 games in 2015-16.
On Senior Day, Hayner set a career high with 27 points, while setting the DI program mark and tying the all-time program record with seven threes in a single game. The guard hit her sixth and seventh three-pointers in a span of 73 seconds during the fourth quarter to accomplish the feat.
