Handy Posts Double-Double, Lifts Women's Basketball to 73-52 Win Over Hilbert

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Frostburg State women’s basketball team defeated Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opponent Hilbert College, 73-52, Saturday afternoon at the Hafner Recreational Center.

FSU improves to 8-4 overall and 4-2 in the conference, while Hilbert College drops to 1-12 overall and 1-6 in the league.

The Bobcats were once again led by freshman Tonya Handy (Burtonsville, Md./Paint Branch) who posted her sixth double-double of the season with 18 points and 14 rebounds.

Freshman Sidra Bing (Columbia, Md./Catholic of Baltimore) and senior Tracie George (Windber Pa./Windber) also posted solid performances putting up 14 and 13 points, respectively.

The Bobcats also played well as a team by tallying up season highs in rebounds, 53, and assists, 17.

The Bobcat defense held the Hawks to just 18-of-49 (36.7%) shooting from the field while the FSU offense shot 33-of-83 (39.8%) from the hardwood.

The Hawks were led by 15 points from Lucy Zver, who was 3-of-6 from the field but a perfect 9-of-9 from the charity stripe. Brittany Barr was second on the team with nine points and Amanda McHale was third with seven.

The Bobcats opened the scoring with a layup by junior Amanda LaPorta (Westminster Md./Westminster) at 19:40. The Bobcats would build an eight-point lead, 12-4, on a Handy layup at 13:47.

Hilbert rebounded to narrow the lead to just three, 12-9, at the 12:57 mark. Frostburg State then went on a 23-4 run to increase the lead to 21 points, 34-13, with 5:39 left in the period.

Hilbert managed to bring the FSU lead to 13 points, 39-26, as the team headed into the locker rooms.

The second half started off slowly with neither team making a run until four consecutive layups by Handy sparked the Bobcats to a 20-point lead, 61-41, with 10:43 left.

Frostburg State would never look back, opening its largest lead of the afternoon at the 5:07 mark, 24-points, 71-47, before going on for the 73-52 victory.

The Bobcats return to action on January 15 when it hosts Lake Erie College at 1:00 pm in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference action.
