FROSTBURG, MD —
Senior Tracey Little (LaVale, Md./Allegany)
scored 27 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to lead Frostburg State to a 100-52 win over Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opponent Hilbert Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.
With the win and Medaille’s 73-70 victory over Pitt-Greensburg, the Bobcats clinch first place in the AMCC’s regular-season standings and earn a bye in the first round of the AMCC Tournament. Frostburg State will host the tournament semifinals and final February 25 and 26.
Little moved into fifth place on FSU’s all-time scoring list and now has 1,552 points, passing Kara Reed-Nelson’s 1,548.
The Bobcats took an early lead as they went on a 12-0 run over the first four minutes of the game, led by six points from Little. FSU continued to pour it on and stretched its lead to 34-6 on back-to-back layups by freshman Amanda LaPorta (Westminster, Md./Westminster) midway through the period. LaPorta added two more layups to give FSU a 45-18 lead with 55 seconds left in the first half. Hilbert scored the final five points of the half, making the score 45-23 at the break.
The second half rivaled the first with FSU in control of the game, using a 17-7 scoring run, capped by a jumper by junior Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) to take a 60-29 lead. Little tied Reed-Nelson’s mark with a layup with 10:59 remaining and hit two freethrows with 3:46 left to take over sole possession of fifth place.
A lay-up by Krystin Hargrove (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) with 40 seconds left gave the Bobcats a 100-50 lead. The Bobcats reached the century mark for the first time since a 106-15 win over Chatham November 22, 1996.
