GIBSONIA, PA —
The Frostburg State University women’s basketball team has been picked to finish second in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference according to a vote taken by the league’s head coaches.
Leading the way for the Bobcats is senior forward Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany), who was chosen the AMCC Preseason Player of the Year for the second straight year. She led the league in scoring (20.2 ppg), rebounding (11.2 rpg) and blocks (2.04 bpg) in 2003-04.
Little is one of four returning starters from a squad that finished 16-12 overall and 6-6 in the AMCC. The Bobcats advanced to the AMCC semifinals and also earned a bid to the Eastern College Athletic Conference Southern Championships.
Penn State Behrend is the favorite to repeat as the AMCC champion. Last season, the Lions finished 22-6 overall and 11-1 in the AMCC, won their second conference tournament title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the third time.
Pitt-Greensburg, which fell to Penn State Behrend 67-56 in last year’s title game, was picked to finish third in 2004-05. The Bobcats return seven letterwinners and three starters from a team that finished 22-7 overall and 10-2 in the AMCC. UPG advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season.
Frostburg State begins its season this weekend when it hosts the Jim Crawley Tip-Off Classic at Bobcat Arena. Action starts Friday as Hood faces Delaware Valley at 6, followed by Lycoming and Frostburg State at 8.
Lycoming and Hood square off Saturday at 2, and Delaware Valley and Frostburg State meet at 4.
