The Bobcats had their three-game winning streak snapped with an 80-68 loss to Nazareth Sunday, while the Mounties dropped a 73-68 decision to Waynesburg Saturday for their six straight loss.
Frostburg State is led by junior forward Tracey Little, who is averaging 19.4 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. In three games last week, Little averaged 23.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks as the Bobcats won two of three contests.
