Women's Basketball Opens Season with Win over Lycoming

FROSTBURG, MD — Senior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) scored 22 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked four shots while junior Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton) added 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead Frostburg State to a 73-65 win over Lycoming in the Third Annual Jim Crawley Classic Friday night at Bobcat Arena.

The Bobcats (1-0) held a 57-44 lead with 12:12 left in the game, but the Warriors (0-1) went on a 9-0 run over the next four minutes to pull to within 57-53.

True and junior Ashley Mello (Joppa, Md./Edgewood) then hit jumpers to give FSU a 61-53 cushion before Lycoming made another push, closing to within 65-63 on a three-pointer by junior Rebecca Pugh with 3:08 remaining.

Junior Stephanie Watts (Baltimore, Md./North County) grabbed a key defensive rebound and hit two free throws to make it a 67-63 contest with 2:14 to go, and Little added a defensive board and a block to keep the Warriors at bay.

Sophomore Krystin Hargrove (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) sank three free throws to give the Bobcats a 70-65 advantage with 40 seconds left and punctuated the win with a layup as time wound down. Hargrove finished with 11 points.

After shooting 55.2 percent (16-of-29) in the first half, Frostburg State cooled off in the second stanza, hitting 32.3 (10-of-31) from the floor. However, the Bobcats hit 14-of-15 shots from the free throw line in the final stanza.

Frostburg State jumped out to a quick 7-2 lead on a three-pointer by True and a pair of jumpers by Little, but Lycoming went on a 10-3 run to take a 12-10 lead at the 13:06 mark.

After Mello sank a jumper to tie the game at 12, the Warriors scored eight of the next 12 points to move in front 20-16. Little and True then hit back-to-back baskets before sophomore Tracie George (Windber, Pa./Windber) drained a three-pointer to put the Bobcats back on top 23-20.

True converted a three-point play to make it a 30-26 contest, and she followed with a steal that led to a layup by George, who was fouled on the play. She missed the free throw, but True collected the rebound and nailed a jumper to give FSU a 34-26 advantage with 2:14 left in the half.

Lycoming pulled to within 34-31 on a basket by Lindsey Smith, but two free throws by senior Charlena Reeves (Oakland, Md./Southern Garrett) and a steal and layup by Hargrove gave the Bobcats a 38-31 lead at the break.

Senior Amy Hershman led the Warriors with 14 points, while freshman Colleen Wade added 13 points. Junior Danielle Kern grabbed 10 rebounds.

In the first game of the evening, Delaware Valley had seven players score in double figures in a 111-75 win over Hood.

Junior Kate McCarthy (15), freshman Beccie Strohecker (13), junior Juli McGowan (12), senior Jackie Hartzell (10) and freshman Moira Donohue (10) also reached double digits as the Aggies shot a scorching 64.3 percent (45-of-70) from the field.

Delaware Valley outscored Hood 15-3 over the first five minutes of the game and never looked back. The Aggies opened a 31-11 lead on a jumper by Strohecker at the midway point of the first half, and the advantage grew to as much as 32, 59-27, on a layup by McGowan in the final seconds of the stanza.

Golden scored 10 of her points in the first 5:42 of the second half to help the Aggies take a 75-41 lead, and a Donohue basket made it a 100-58 contest with 5:40 remaining.
