Women's Basketball Falls to Pitt-Greensburg to Close out Regular Season
02/18/2006

FROSTBURG, MD — Senior Teya Minor netted a last-second basket to lead Pitt-Greensburg to a 77-74 win over Frostburg State in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference women’s basketball action Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.

FSU earned the No. 3 seed and will host the first round of the AMCC Tournament, while UPG is the No. 2 seed and earned a bye in the first round.

Frostburg State (17-8, 13-6 AMCC) took an early 8-4 lead off a jumper by junior Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber) two minutes into play. Senior Stephanie Watts (Baltimore, Md./North County) extended the lead to six just one minute later.

Pitt-Greensburg (20-5, 16-2 AMCC) came back to take over the lead (16-18) at 13:29 on a three-point play by Minor. FSU regained the lead on a Watts three-pointer at 12:44. UPG would again get the lead, 37-36, off back-to-back free throws from Shannon Thomas.

An 8-2 run in the closing two minutes put Frostburg State ahead 47-40 at intermission.

In the second half, FSU pushed its lead to 52-42 at the 18:25 mark off a layup from freshman Caryn Wright (Baltimore, Md./Western Tech). Pitt-Greensburg closed the gap and came within 56-55 with 11:15 on the game clock.

Both teams went back and forth over the next five minutes before UPG took a five-point lead (72-67) with 4:16 left in regulation. Two shots from the charity stripe by Wright tied the game at 74 apiece with 51 seconds left to play.

With 2.1 seconds on the clock, Minor drained a deep three-pointer and Frostburg State’s half-court shot missed as Pitt-Greensburg earned the victory.

Watts had a great all-around game with 16 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and three steals. Wright had a game-high 19 points, while George added 12 points.

UPG was led by Tiffany Menhorn with 17 points, while Nicole Reiser and Minor added 12 and 11 points, respectively.

Frostburg State returns to action Tuesday as the host the first round of the AMCC Tournament against a team yet to be announced beginning at 7:00 pm.
