James Scores 22; Women's Basketball Slips Past Pitt-Bradford for 69-66 Win

BRADFORD, Pa. – Freshman Brittney James (Baltimore, Md./Mildford Mill) scored a career-high 22 points to lead Frostburg State past Pitt-Bradford, 69-66, in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference women’s basketball action, Saturday afternoon.

FSU (13-8, 8-6 AMCC) trailed by one (35-34) at halftime, but outscored UPB (7-13, 6-8 AMCC) 35-31 in the second to earn the victory in a game that had 10 lead changes and nine ties.

James led the Bobcats with eight rebounds and five steals and senior Krystin Hargrove (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) scored 13 points for her 13th-straight contest in double figures.

Taisha Brown led the Panthers with 23 points and 10 boards while Katie Moore scored 21 and Megan Richards added 12.

Pitt-Bradford used a slow FSU start and opened an 11-4 lead just five minutes into the contest. The Bobcats would pick up the pace, using the next nine-plus minutes to take a 27-26 lead on a Hargrove layup.

The final 5:47 of the opening half had seven lead changes and three ties and UPB emerged with a one-point advantage at the break.

The second half started like the first as Pitt-Bradford opened a seven-point lead, 43-36, with 17:40 left in the game. FSU answered with a 16-7 run, tying the contest at 52-52 with 11:17 to play. The Bobcats took their first-lead of the second half, 56-54, on a jumper by freshman Courtney Lancaster (Beltsville, Md./High Point) at 7:57.

Frostburg State would control the game from that point on, never allowing Pitt-Bradford to retake the lead and holding the Panthers to just four baskets the rest of the game. James hit a pair of free throws at 2:35 to give the Bobcats their largest lead of the game, 67-62, before going on for th 69-66 win.

FSU travels to conference opponent Penn State Altoona on Wednesday for a 6:00 pm ballgame.
