Women's Basketball Rallies Late but Falls Short Versus Seton Hill
12/14/2002

FROSTBURG, MD — Seton Hill senior Kameico Robinson posted 26 points and 21 rebounds and the Spirit held off a late Frostburg State rally for a 91-81 win Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.

An accident caused Seton Hill (4-3) to arrive late to the game, but that didn't slow down the Spirit as they raced out to a 23-6 lead after seven minutes of play.

However, the Bobcats stormed back, capping a 22-5 stretch with an impressive 16-0 run over the next 7:49 to pull even.

The Bobcats (5-5), who dropped their fourth straight contest, trailed 28-12 at the 10:15 mark, before making their run.

Senior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) had eight points in the rally, while fellow senior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) added four as the Bobcats capitalized on nine straight misses by Seton Hill.

The Spirit regrouped and opened a 37-31 advantage, but Bobcat freshman Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) sandwiched jumpers around a lay-up by sophomore Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) to pull FSU even again at 37.

Seton Hill moved out in front with a Robinson lay-up and a jumper by Cortni McGinnis, and Denishia Salters' trey from well behind the three-point line as time expired gave the visitors a 44-38 lead at halftime.

The Spirit came out strong in the second half and used their full-court pressure to open a double-digit lead. Seton Hill forced three quick turnovers to fuel a 9-0 run to begin the half and build a 51-38 bulge.

The lead grew to as many as 16, 75-59, with 6:56 remaining before FSU made its final charge.

Myers turned red hot, sinking two three-pointers, a jumper and a pair of free throws in a 16-6 stretch that brought the Bobcats to within 81-75 with 3:29 to play.

FSU then made it a four-point contest, 82-78, on two free throws by senior Christina Bleivik (Anchorage, Alaska/Bartlett (Pa.)) at the 2:27 mark, but the Bobcats missed five of their final six shots.

Seton Hill sealed the win by hitting 7-of-10 from the free-throw line in the closing moments.

Salters and McGinnis added 17 and 15 points, respectively, for Seton Hill, which shot 34-of-83 (41.0) for the game.

Faust tied her season-high with 23 points, while Little poured in 21 points and grabbed 15 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the year.

Myers scored 15 points and dished out five assists, but FSU couldn't overcome 28 turnovers and 4-of-15 shooting from three-point range.

The Bobcats return to action on January 7 when they visit Waynesburg at 5:30 pm.
