Move Over Northern Illinois, Sarah Lawrence College Only Scores Four Points In A Half

Northern Illinois you now have company for college basketball futility. 
Sarah Lawrence College is a small NCAA Division III school located in Bronxville, New York.  Wednesday night the Gryphons battled Hudson Valley Men’s Athletic Conference rival St. Joseph’s College Brooklyn in tiny Noyes Court at Campbell Sports Center on the SLC campus.

In front of an intimate gathering of 114, that was the official attendance, the Gryphons put on a performance perhaps only Northern Illinois can relate to, on the bad end of a 71-20 pounding from St. Joseph’s Brooklyn.  That’s right, Sarah Lawrence only scored 20 points for the game, only 4 points in the second half.
That sound familiar NIU Huskie fans?
The good thing for Sarah Lawrence College is there seems to be no video evidence of this display of basketball futility.  Those of us in the OSG HQ have been searching and have come up empty.
This is the closest we could find that just might resemble Wednesday night’s game.

The only recorded history of the SLC/St. Joseph's Brooklyn game is this game report on SLC's athletic web site

To say Sarah Lawrence College is offensively challenged is an understatement.  The Gryphons average 34 points per game and shooting 44 percent as a team.
The 20 points SLC scored Wednesday night is not the least the Gryphons have scored in a game this season.  Back on November 17th SLC lost to Framingham State 74-14.  Then two months later the Gryphons  could only score 19 points in a 78-19 loss to Vassar College.
To be fair SLC has won four games this season which is the most in five years.  The Gryphons even swept the two game home and home series against Webb Institute. 
Those of us in the OSG HQ are wondering what a Northern Illinois/Sarah Lawrence match-up would be like.  First one to 30 wins?
