Farmingdale, NY| Despite game-high totals in points (16) and rebounds (21) by senior Andrea Iavarone, the St. Joseph's College (L.I.) women's basketball team (2-6, 3-0 Skyline) dropped a 74-48 decision to Skyline Conference rival Farmingdale State College (3-6, 2-1 Skyline) on Tuesday evening.

Iavarone's 16 points came off of 6-for-9 shooting from the field. The forward also went 4-for-4 from the charity stripe and grabbed four offensive rebounds.

Freshman Jami Cardenas was 4-for-8 and dished out three assists. Sophomore Juliana Cintron-Leonardo contributed six points (3-for-5 FG) and four rebounds.
