FROSTBURG, MD —
The Frostburg State women's basketball team will look for its sixth win in its last nine games when it travels to Frederick to take on Hood College Thursday at 7:00 pm.
Although the schools are less than two hours apart, this is believed to be their first meeting in women's basketball.
Frostburg State takes a 7-4 record into the contest after splitting two games at the Second Annual Jim Crawley Classic last weekend.
The Bobcats fell to Waynesburg 81-80 Friday before rebounding with a 73-64 win over Westminster Saturday.
Junior forward Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) leads the Bobcats with 19.5 points and 10.2 rebounds per game and also has a team-high 20 blocks.
Little, an All-America candidate, has been FSU's high scorer nine times and has five double-doubles this season.
Freshman Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber) has made an immediate impact, averaging 14.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists in seven games.
She has hit a team-high 14 three-pointers and leads the squad with a 46.7 three-point shooting percentage.
Sophomore forward Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) is averaging 10.2 points and 10.0 rebounds thanks to a recent surge.
In her last three games, she has averaged 14.7 points and 13.3 rebounds and has had double-doubles in every game in that stretch.
Junior forward Jamie Cable (Brunswick, Md./Brunswick), who is coming off a 16-point, 10-rebound performance against Westminster, is adding 9.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest.
Hood (4-2) brings a three-game winning streak into Thursday's contest after posting an 80-71 win at nationally ranked Salisbury 80-71 December 9. It was arguably the best win in Hood's history.
The Blazers, a member of the Atlantic Women's Colleges Conference, have advanced to the last two NCAA Tournaments thanks to winning back-to-back AWCC Tournament titles (the AWCC winner receives an automatic bid).
All five Hood starters are averaging double digits in scoring and have accounted for 84 percent (395 of 469) of the team's points this season.
Senior guard Melissa Kolb, who had 20 points in the win over Salisbury, leads the Blazers with 14.7 points per game and is adding 4.8 rebounds per contest.
Sophomore guard Kathryn Linehan, who had a team-high 21 points as well as five assists and four steals versus Salisbury, is averaging 14.0 points per game.
Senior guard Mandy Fischer is averaging 12.5 points and has a team-best 23 steals, while junior forward Danielle Allen is adding 12.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per contest.
