Whittier stunned Central Mass. power Holy Name 54-53.
The Cats (10-0) got a huge effort from Andrea Terranova. She scored 21 points, including the go-ahead driving layup with 15 seconds left. Then her defense at the other end thwarted the Naps and gave the Cats the huge upset.
"It was back and forth," said Whittier coach Kevin Bradley. "It was like two heavyweights going at it. It was two of the top teams in the state going at it."
Holy Name (now 10-2), which is ranked 10th in the ESPNBoston statewide poll, is ranked No. 1 in Central Mass. Last year it lost in the Division 1 Central finals to Westford and the year before the Naps lost to Central Catholic in the D1 state final.
Junior Monica Vipiano, who has already committed to Bentley, was held in check by Whittier's 6-5 Samnell Vonleh.
"She had 14 blocks. She was unbelievable. She was just a force," said Bradley.
Vonleh, who also had 11 rebounds, owned the lane and Terranova did a little bit of everything.
"Andrea supplied defense, ballhandling, she just did a great job on both ends," said Bradley. "She also hit a big 3 before the half. She rose to the occasion."
This is getting old hat for Whittier, which also opened eyes around the state with a big win over North Andover. The Knights Friday night showed how good they are by toppling previously unbeaten Andover.
