Women's Basketball Falls to Delaware Valley in Jim Crawley Classic

FROSTBURG, MD — Sophomore Rachel Joyce scored 16 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Delaware Valley to a 61-53 win over Frostburg State on the second day of the Jim Crawley Classic Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.

Joyce was named the Classic’s Most Valuable Player after totaling 34 points and 25 rebounds in two games. Aggie senior Bridget Golden, Bobcat senior Tracey Little and junior Kelly True, Lycoming freshman Colleen Wade and Hood freshman Danielle Gallagher were also named to the All-Classic Team.

Delaware Valley (2-0) took a 17-8 lead at the 13:33 mark on a three-pointer by Joyce, but Frostburg State (1-1) used a 10-0 run to move in front 20-19. Senior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) began the rally with a jumper, and sophomore Krystin Hargrove (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) followed with a pair of free throws.

Junior Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) then hit a jumper before Little completed the stretch with back-to-back buckets.

Golden snapped the run with a jumper to put the Aggies back on top 21-20, but the Bobcats later pulled even at 28 on two free throws by True with 1:48 left in the half.

Freshman Beccie Strohecker drained a three-pointer and a free throw to put DVC up by four with 48 ticks remaining before junior Melanie Herget (Glen Burnie, Md./Old Mill) nailed a three to cut FSU’s deficit to 32-31 at the break.

Bobcat junior Ashley Mello (Joppa, Md./Edgewood) came out on fire after the break and scored all 10 of her points in the first 4:35 to help give the Bobcats a 43-40 lead, but Delaware Valley outscored the Bobcats 10-2 over the next seven minutes to grab a 50-45 advantage with 8:15 left.

FSU pulled even again on a three-pointer and two free throws by sophomore Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber). Freshman Amanda LaPorta (Westminster, Md./Westminster) then added a layup and free throw to make it a 53-51 Bobcat lead with 4:54 remaining.

Those would be the last points for the Bobcats, who missed their final nine shots of the game. Delaware Valley tied it at 53 on a pair of free throws by freshman Shannon O’Neill and Strohecker drained two more from the stripe with 2:57 to play to give the Aggies the lead for good.

Joyce scored Delaware Valley’s final six points of the game, including four from the free-throw line, to seal the victory.

Little led Frostburg State with 12 points and 12 rebounds, while True finished with eight points and eight boards.

The Bobcats shot just 27.1 percent (19-of-70) from the field, including 2-of-20 from three-point range.

O’Neill (15), Strohecker (12) and Golden (10) all scored in double digits for the Aggies.

In the first game of the day, freshman Colleen Wade scored 20 points, grabbed six rebounds and added four steals to lead Lycoming to a 65-56 win over Hood.

Wade hit 10-of-11 shots from the field for the Warriors (1-1), who sank 6-of-7 free throws in the final 3:19 to seal the victory.

The teams battled to a 10-10 tie in the opening eight minutes of action before Lycoming went on a 12-4 run to open a 22-14 cushion. Hood (0-2) then battled back to cut the deficit to four at the half, 30-26.
