Pitt-Bradford Rallies Past Women's Basketball in Key AMCC Contest
02/14/2004

BRADFORD, PA — Pitt-Bradford overcame a 10-point halftime deficit by outscoring Frostburg State 23-8 over the first 10 minutes of the second half en route to a 65-58 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference win Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers improved to 9-14 overall, while the Bobcats fell to 13-10. Both teams are 4-6 in AMCC play and are still in contention to host a first-round AMCC Tournament game February 25, but UPB holds the tie-breaker over FSU by virtue of its sweep of two regular-season meetings.

Frostburg State held a 13-12 lead at the 11:04 mark and used a 13-4 run to open a 26-16 cushion.

Junior Jamie Cable (Brunswick, Md./Brunswick) scored the first seven points in the stretch, while junior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) closed the spurt with back-to-back jumpers.

However, the tide turned in Pitt-Bradford's favor when Little was whistled for her third foul followed immediately by a technical foul, forcing the AMCC's leading scorer and rebounder to the bench with 5:18 left in the half.

Pitt-Bradford couldn't take advantage immediately, and the Bobcats went into the lockerroom with a 33-23 advantage.

With Little remaining on the sideline through the first 10 minutes of the second half, the Panthers went to work.

UPB outscored FSU 15-4 run to take a 38-37 edge with 14:23 left before Bobcat sophomore Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Warfordsburg) hit a jumper to put the visitors back on top 39-38.

However, that would be FSU's final lead of the afternoon.

Pitt-Bradford followed with a 10-2 to open a 48-41 advantage with 10:23 left before Little re-entered the game for the Bobcats.

Little made a layup to pull FSU to within four, 52-48, with 5:47 remaining, but UPB sank back-to-back jumpers to push its lead back to 56-48 at the 3:10 mark.

A jumper by Cable and a free throw by Little made it a 56-51 contest with 2:31 left. However, Katie Barrett converted a three-point play with 30 seconds to play to seal the victory.

Julia Augustus led Pitt-Bradford with 14 points, while Barrett finished with 13. Dani Hamilton had 12, and Calista Walker had 10.

Cable tied her career-high with 21 points, while Little and freshman Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber) each added 11.

Little now has 982 career points and needs just 18 more to become the 12th player in FSU women's basketball history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

Frostburg State, which has dropped four of its last five AMCC contests, looks to finish strong in its final regular-season home game Wednesday night against Penn State Altoona at 6 pm.

The Bobcats will close out their AMCC slate Saturday, February 21st at La Roche at 4 pm.
