Women's Basketball Falls to Pitt-Greensburg
02/12/2003

FROSTBURG, MD — Annie Sral scored a team-high 17 points, including 12 in the second half, and grabbed 13 rebounds to help lead Pitt-Greensburg to a hard-fought 70-64 win over host Frostburg State Wednesday night at Bobcat Arena.

Pitt-Greensburg, which tied a school record with their fifth straight win, improved to 17-5 overall and 9-1 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference. Frostburg State fell to 9-12 overall and 3-6 in the AMCC.

In a nip-and-tuck game that featured seven ties, UPG held a 48-41 advantage with 12:15 remaining. However, FSU went on a 12-6 run over the next five minutes to close to within 54-53.

The visitors used back-to-back baskets to push their lead back to five, 58-53, but senior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) drained a three-pointer to cap a 6-0 spurt that gave FSU a 59-58 advantage with 2:41 to play.

After Jess Porter put UPG back in front with a short jumper, FSU senior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) answered to make it a 61-60 contest with 2:08 left.

Sral sank two free throws with 1:57 remaining to give UPG a 62-61 lead and then hit a jumper to increase her team's cushion to 64-61. The lead was short-lived, however, as senior Christina Bleivik (Anchorage, Alaska/Bartlett) drilled a three-pointer to forge the game's final tie with 1:30 to go.

Torey Auld put UPG in front for good, 65-64, by hitting one of two free throws at the 1:16 mark, and UPG sank five of six free throws in the final 21 seconds to seal the victory.

Sophomore Tracey Little (LaVale, Md./Allegany) paced FSU with 19 points, a career-high 17 rebounds and four blocks, while Faust added 19 points and six boards.

Myers dished out a career-high 12 assists to go along with nine points, six rebounds and three steals for the Bobcats, who committed 28 turnovers, including 20 in the first half.

Porter (13), Erin Arnold (12) and Abbey Cunningham (11) also scored in double-digits for UPG.

Frostburg State will host Pitt-Bradford on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
