Women's Basketball Remains Winless With 87-51 Loss to Mount Aloysius
11/28/2001

FROSTBURG, MD — Ginger Fanelli scored a team-high 20 points to lead four Mount Aloysius players in double figures as the visiting Mounties downed Frostburg State, 87-51, Wednesday night at Bobcat Arena.

Mount Aloysius picked up its first win of the year, improving to 1-4, while the Bobcats remained winless, falling to 0-5 on the season.

Junior Christina Bleivik (Houston, Pa./Bartlett) opened the scoring by draining a three-pointer to give FSU its lone lead of the game, 3-0, before Mount Aloysius went on an 11-0 run over the next five minutes.

The Mounties steadily increased their lead behind 14-of-27 (51.9 percent) shooting in the first half, building a 45-21 advantage at halftime.

The Bobcats, who hit just 6-of-25 field goals in the opening 20 minutes, came out with renewed intensity to start the second stanza.

Junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) began the half with a three-point play, and Bleivik nailed her second three-pointer of the game to start a 9-0 run.

Consecutive baskets by Faust, Bleivik and junior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) brought FSU to within 16, 49-33, with 17:14 remaining.

However, the Mounties used a 15-3 run to pull away for good and led by as many as 39, 86-47, with under two minutes to play.

Faust enjoyed another solid game, posting a game-high 23 points to go along with seven rebounds and three steals.

Bleivik added a career-high eight points and added four rebounds, while Myers finished with seven points.

FSU shot just 18-of-57 (31.6 percent) from the floor for the game and committed 31 turnovers.

Randi Baker (18 points), Krista Pisarski (15) and Michelle Sauserman (10) also scored in double-figures for Mount Aloysius.

The Bobcats return to action on Friday when they take on Geneva at 6 p.m. in the opening game of the Bethany (W.Va.) Tournament.
