In Sunday's 71-60 win at New Hampshire, Haines had a game-high 23 points and 12 rebounds on 10-of-16 shooting and a career-high three three-pointers (3-for-4). She also added two blocks, two assists and one steal.

In last Tuesday's win over Siena, she contributed 14 points, a team-high seven rebounds, one block and one steal on 6-of-13 shooting.

The Pioneers have a pair of games on the schedule for this week, beginning at Providence on Wednesday before returning home Sunday to face Monmouth.
