“She came back in the next day, and was like, ‘I want to do it,’” Howe said.

Giustra has played in 18 of SMCC’s 19 games. She’s averaging 3.7 points and 2.8 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per game, and has gained a reputation as a solid, tenacious defender.

“She is a great teammate — always making people laugh, always in a good mood,” Howe said. “She is a great, great part of the team.”

In a recent 69-61 win over UMaine-Augusta, SMCC used nine players, and all nine played between 15 and 32 minutes. That and a defense that is averaging 14.2 steals per game have been big reasons for the Seawolves success.

“We play a pretty up-tempo game,” Howe said. “By the end of games, we’ve tired teams out, and can take advantage in transition.”

Oak Hill grad Maggie Sabine is in her first season at St. Michael’s after starring for the women’s basketball team at Central Maine Community College. Sabine started off slowly, but has made a big leap forward since late December.

Over her first nine games this season, Sabine averaged 4.3 points per game, never scoring more than six in any contest. In Sabine’s last seven games, she is averaging 14.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game.

Sabine’s biggest game was her most recent one. In a 71-66 loss, Sabine finished with 31 points and 13 rebounds in 34 minutes of play.
