Women's Basketball Falls to Penn State Behrend
01/12/2002

ERIE, PA — Kate Costanzo scored a game-high 19 points, and three other Penn State Behrend players reached double-digit scoring figures as the Lions downed visiting Frostburg State, 80-50, in an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference game Saturday afternoon at the Junker Center.

The Lions (6-8, 3-1 AMCC) took control of the game early and built a 16-2 lead on a three-pointer by Constanzo at the 12:36 mark.

The Bobcats (3-10, 1-2) were plagued by foul trouble throughout the first half.

Junior guard Christina Bleivik (Houston, Pa./Bartlett) was whistled twice in the first minute of play, and junior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) went the bench with her third foul after just seven minutes.

Penn State Behrend took advantage, opening a 42-23 bulge with 2:44 left in the half. The Lions hit 12-of-26 from the field and 17-of-19 from the foul line in the opening 20 minutes.

Frostburg State cut its deficit to 16 points, 49-33, on senior Donita Valentine's (Laurel, Md./Meade) layup at the 17:03 mark, but Myers was called for her fourth foul seconds later.

The Lions dominated for the remainder of the game, with their lead reaching as high as 35 (80-45) in the closing minutes.

Junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) led Frostburg State with 10 points and 7 rebounds.

Valentine added 6 points and 7 rebounds, while sophomore Jimmien Strong (Seat Pleasant, Md./DuVal) had 5 points and a career-high 7 rebounds.

Erin Phillips had 16 points for Penn State Behrend, with Erica Mozdy and Carly Cochran adding 14 and 10 points, respectively.

The Bobcats return to action on Wednesday when they visit Penn State Altoona for another AMCC contest at 6 p.m.
