ARLINGTON, VA —
Jen Wozniak scored 13 points to lead three King's players in double figures, and the Monarchs outscored Frostburg State, 37-18, in the second half en route to a big 71-47 win over the Bobcats in the season-opener for both teams Friday afternoon at the 2001 Marymount Tip-Off Classic at Verizon Sports Arena.
Frostburg State, under first-year Head Coach Jody Pepple, made just nine field goals in the opening half of play but used 9-of-10 shooting from the free-throw line to trail by only five, 34-29, at halftime.
However, the Bobcats were just 5-of-20 from the field in the second stanza, while the Monarchs, who advanced to the last two NCAA Division III Tournaments, sank 16-of-40 shots after intermission. FSU was also plagued by 39 turnovers in the game.
Senior Kesha Frisby (Clinton, Md./Oxon Hill) scored a game-high 18 points, hitting 7 of her 10 shots, including two three-pointers.
Junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin), a preseason All-America honorable mention selection, was held to just 6 points but grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds, including 12 on the defensive end.
Fran Monte had 11 points and eight rebounds for King's, while Katie Harrison added 10 points.
Frostburg State continues play in the Marymount Classic tomorrow and faces either Gettysburg or Salisbury at 11 a.m.
