WILMINGTON, OH —
Thomas More used a 27-10 run to start the second half en route to a 64-52 win over Frostburg State in the championship game of the Damon’s/Wilmington Inn Tip-Off Tournament Saturday afternoon at Wilmington College.
Frostburg State junior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) scored 10 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for her second double-double in two games, while fellow junior Jamie Cable (Brunswick, Md./Brunswick) added a game-high 19 points and seven rebounds.
Both Little and Cable were named to the All-Tournament Team.
Thomas More (2-0) was led by senior Joanna Bess, who recorded 15 points and seven rebounds to earn Tournament MVP honors. Freshman Brooke Warner, who was also selected to the all-tournament team, recorded 15 points and nine rebounds.
Frostburg State (1-1) came out strong in the first half, shooting 14-of-23 (60.9%) from the field, but went cold in the second stanza, hitting just 5-of-31 shots (16.1%).
Cable scored 14 of her 19 points in the opening half, as she shot a perfect 6-for-6 from the floor including two three-pointers.
Little scored eight of her 10 points, pulled down seven rebounds and added two blocks to help the Bobcats take a 35-32 halftime lead.
However, the Saints were able to stay in the game despite shooting 30% from the field, as they pulled down 11 of their 20 offensive rebounds in the first half.
Neither team could pull away in the opening 20 minutes, with seven ties and eight lead changes highlighting the action. The biggest lead belonged to the Bobcats at 13-7 with 15:00 remaining.
However, the second half was much different, as the Saints built a 19-point advantage (64-45) before the Bobcats finished the game on a 7-0 run.
Frostburg State returns to action on Tuesday when they host Mary Washington at 6:00 p.m.
