Women's Basketball Falls to Penn State Altoona
01/16/2002

ALTOONA, PA — Penn State Altoona's Kim Ebersole posted a game-high 26 points, including nine straight for her team late in the second half, and the Cougars outscored Frostburg State, 23-6, in the final 7:42 en route to an 81-64 victory in an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference contest Wednesday night at Adler Gym.

With FSU clinging to a 58-55 lead, Ebersole drained a three to tie it before Bobcat junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) sank a free throw to put FSU back in front, 59-58, at the 7:33 mark.

However, Ebersole, who also collected a team-high 12 rebounds, put Penn State Altoona ahead for good with back-to-back three pointers moments later.

The Bobcats (3-11, 1-3 AMCC) trailed 66-60 with 5:19 to go but ran out of steam, and the Cougars slowly pulled away.

FSU opened the game on a tear, building a 24-14 lead over the defending AMCC champions at the 10:55 mark of the first half.

Penn State Altoona (7-4, 3-1) pulled close behind 13-of-19 shooting from the free throw line and trailed the Bobcats, 40-37, at the break.

Faust led the Bobcats with 19 points and a game-high 13 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the year. She also added a career-high five steals.

Fellow junior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) added 15 points and six assists for FSU, which held a 35-32 advantage in rebounds but shot just 12-of-24 from the free throw line and committed 22 turnovers.

Misty Meredith had 13 points for Penn State Altoona, while Kirsten Toomey recorded 12 points and 7 assists. Lynnea DeBernardis added 11 points.

The Bobcats return to action on Saturday when they host Pitt-Bradford on Business and Community Day beginning at 2 p.m.
