ROCHESTER, N.Y. —
Frostburg State junior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany)
scored a career-high 32 points and freshman Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber)
added a personal-best 16 points, but it wasn't enough as host Nazareth posted an 80-68 win over the Bobcats in the Holiday Inn Airport Tournament Sunday afternoon at Kidera Gymnasium.
The Golden Flyers improved to 3-2 on the season, while the Bobcats had their three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 5-3.
Little, who set a tournament single-game scoring record, sank 12-of-26 shots from the floor and 7-of-7 attempts from the free-throw line while also grabbing nine rebounds.
However, Nazareth junior Kadi Burgess scored 16 of her team-high 24 points in the first half to help the Golden Flyers build a commanding 41-26 halftime lead.
The game was tied 10-10 at the 14:38 mark, but the hosts used a 22-7 run over the next 10 minutes to take control.
Little hit back-to-back jumpers to start the second half to bring FSU to within 11, 41-30, but Burgess scored eight points in a 17-8 spurt that essentially put the game out of reach.
The Bobcats got as close as 12 several times in the closing minutes, but the Golden Flyers kept FSU at bay from the free-throw line.
Bobcat sophomore Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) tied her career high with 13 rebounds, including 12 in the first half.
Burgess earned game MVP honors for her performance, while junior Kate Gagliardi was selected to the all-tourament team after scoring a career-high 17 points and grabbing nine rebounds.
Freshman Sarah Homer poured in a career-high 13 points, and junior Sara Shipley added 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Little, True and George were all named to the all-tournament team for the Bobcats.
Frostburg State returns to action Tuesday when it welcomes Mt. Aloysius to Bobcat Arena for a 7:00 pm contest.
