Women's Basketball Falls to Pitt-Greensburg in AMCC Contest
01/09/2002

FROSTBURG, MD — Pitt-Greensburg sophomore Erin Arnold scored a school-record 30 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the visiting Bobcats past Frostburg State, 87-78, in an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference game Wednesday night at Bobcat Arena.

Pitt-Greensburg (2-10, 2-1 AMCC), which never trailed in the contest, quickly opened a 7-2 lead before Frostburg State closed to within two, 18-16, on junior Holly Myers' three-pointer at the midway point of the first half.

However, UPG used a 13-0 run over the next four minutes to move in front, 31-16, and took a 46-34 lead at halftime.

Frostburg State (3-9, 1-1) trailed by double digits for most of the first 10 minutes of the second half and faced a 65-55 deficit with 9:24 remaining before making a final run.

FSU scored seven straight points, led by junior Christina Bleivik, who sandwiched a three-pointer and two free throws around two more free throws by junior Kim Faust to make it a 65-62 game.

But, Arnold took control thereafter, scoring the next six points, and Pitt-Greensburg pulled away down the stretch.

Myers sank a career-high seven three-pointers and led Frostburg State with 23 points, while Faust recorded 21 points and 11 rebounds for her third double-double of the season.

Bleivik added a career-high 16 points.

UPG freshman Annie Sarl had 13 points, while fellow rookie Torey Auld added 11 points and a school-record 11 assists.

Frostburg State returns to action on Saturday when it visits Penn State Behrend for a 2:00 p.m. league contest.
