GREENSBURG, PA —
Sophomore Tracey Little (Cumberland, Md./Allegany)
posted career-highs of 19 points and 10 rebounds, but it wasn't enough to overcome a balanced Pitt-Greensburg squad in FSU's 84-62 loss to the host Bobcats in an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference game Wednesday night at Chambers Hall Gym.
Little, a former standout at nearby Allegany High School, sank 7-of-14 shots from the field and 5-of-6 from the free throw line en route to her first double-double as a Bobcat. She also had three assists and two steals.
Frostburg State (6-15, 2-7 AMCC) opened a quick 5-0 lead on a three-pointer by junior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) and two free throws by junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin), but Pitt-Greensburg outscored FSU, 21-4, over the next 6:32 to take control of the game.
Pitt-Greensburg (9-12, 7-3) opened a 30-16 advantage with 6:12 left in the first half before FSU countered with a 9-2 run to pull to within seven points.
However, the host Bobcats closed out the half with a 13-3 run and led, 45-28, at the break.
Frostburg State cut its deficit to 13 on several occasions midway through the second half, the last coming at 55-42 with 13:43 to play, but Pitt-Greensburg sealed the win with a 15-4 run over the next six minutes.
Faust finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds for her seventh double-double in the last eight games, while Myers added 13 points and a career-high nine steals.
FSU shot a season-high 17-of-18 (94.4) from the free throw line but committed 34 turnovers and was outrebounded, 51-36.
Ashley Beanner led Pitt-Greensburg with 15 points, and Annie Sral and Erin Arnold each had 10 points. All 10 UPG players scored.
Frostburg State will visit Pitt-Bradford on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
