Women's Basketball Pulls Away From Pitt-Bradford for Seventh Win in a Row
01/29/2005

FROSTBURG, MD — Senior Tracey Little (LaVale, Md./Allegany) scored 18 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, while junior Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) added 12 points and 11 rebounds to lead Frostburg State to a 68-51 win over Pitt-Bradford in an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference contest Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.

The Bobcats won their seventh in a row, their longest streak since claiming 10 straight during the 1998-99 season, and improved to 14-4 overall and 11-0 in the AMCC.

FSU’s 14-4 mark is also its best since 1996-97 when it opened 16-2 en route to a 23-3 finish and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Pitt-Bradford fell to 7-11 overall and 5-6 in the conference.

The Bobcats spotted the Panthers an early 4-0 lead before ripping off 15 straight points.

Junior Stephanie Watts (Baltimore, Md./North County) got FSU on the board with a three-pointer, recorded a steal that led to a jumper by sophomore Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber) and later fed Little for a basket to make it 9-4.

True then made a layup and hit two free throws to cap the spurt.

Pitt-Bradford clawed its way back, however, using a 15-5 run over a four-minute span to pull even at 24 with 4:26 left in the half.

Sophomore Krystin Hargrove (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) made the second of two free throws to put the Bobcats back on top 25-24 before Samantha Groller gave the Panthers the lead again with two shots from the stripe.

Hargrove responded with a layup off a steal by Watts before Groller countered with a jumper that gave Pitt-Bradford a 28-27 edge at the break.

Brittany McLean and Groller hit consecutive baskets to open the second half as the visitors took a 32-27 advantage, but the Bobcats hit their stride behind a 15-0 run over the next seven minutes and never looked back. Little scored eight of her points in the outburst.

FSU’s lead grew to as many as 21, 57-36, with 4:49 left.

Watts finished with eight points, seven assists, six rebounds and six steals in another solid all-around effort for the Bobcats, who shot 14-of-28 from the floor and 12-of-14 from the free-throw line in the second half to pull away.

Groller led Pitt-Bradford with 14 points and six rebounds, while McLean added eight points, six rebounds, six assists and five steals before fouling out with 2:15 to play.

Frostburg State looks to continue its streak Tuesday when it hosts Mt. Aloysius in another AMCC contest at 6:00 pm.
