Frostburg State Wins Jim Crawley Invitational
11/24/2002

FROSTBURG, MD — Frostburg State sophomore Tracy Little scored 15 points and added 13 rebounds to lead the Bobcats to a 70-65 victory over Apprentice in the championship game of the Jim Crawley Invitational Sunday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.

Little, who had 10 points and nine rebounds in Saturday's 72-34 win against Wilson, was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

FSU (2-0) dominated the game quickly, jumping out to a 19-9 lead early in the first half behind Little and senior Christina Bleivik. The duo combined for nine points and four key rebounds.

The Bobcats got contributions from freshman Melanie Herget (six points), seniors Kim Faust (five points), Naomi Mason (five points) and Holly Myers (five points) and went into the locker room with a 39-23 halftime lead.

The Builders (1-1) came out of the break showing a full-course press which forced 17 second-half turnovers and helped them overcome a 56-41 deficit with just over 11 minutes remaining.

Apprentice forward Anita Allen led the attack, getting seven of her game-high nine steals in the second half as the visitors went on a 21-3 run over a span of six minutes to take a 62-59 lead.

Still trailing by a point, 64-63 with 1:30 remaining, Myers hit a three-pointer to give the Bobcats a lead that they never relinquished. FSU hit four free-throw attempts in the final minute to secure the win.

Myers scored 28 points over the two games and was named to the all-tournament team, as were Allen, Shenandoah's Shannda Gaskins (30 points, 23 rebounds in two games) and Wilson's Doris Zimmerman (55 points, 18 rebounds).

Bobcat senior Kim Faust, who saw her first action of the year, scored 11 points and pulled down nine rebounds. Bleivik scored 12 as four Bobcats reached double figures.

Leading way for the Builders was Allen, who posted 18 points, 18 rebounds and nine steals. Victoria Lancaster added 17 points, Sharonda Steverson scored 12 and Tanika Banks dropped in 11.

In the consolation game, Shenandoah University defeated Wilson College, 75-50. Gaskins had 22 points and 18 boards for the Hornets, while Zimmeran led the Phoenix with 36 points, including her team's first 19 of the game.

Frostburg State returns to action on Tuesday when it visit Mary Washington at 6:00 pm.
