Freshman forward Emma Stille had a career-best performance and the Carlow women’s basketball team dominated Penn State Fayette, 74-54, on Wednesday, January 11, in Lemont Furnace.

The Celtics (6-7/0-5/6-1) got back on track with their first win since a 78-50 victory against Penn State Allegheny on December 6.

Carlow took control from the tipoff, leading 18-4 after the first quarter and outscoring the Lions in each frame except the fourth.

Stille, a native of Columbus, Ohio, poured in 30 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, while shooting 80 percent (12 of 15) from the floor. She added two steals and a block and also went 6 of 7 from the foul line (86 percent). It was her fifth double-double of the season.

Alexis Yanief (JR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) added 14 points for Carlow. The Celtics also got a boost off the bench, getting 21 points from their reserves.

The Celtics had just 10 turnovers to Fayette’s 17, while scoring 28 points off the Lions’ turnovers. Carlow also outrebounded the Lions, 31-17, and finished the contest shooting 50 percent from the floor and 81.3 percent from the foul line.

Courtney Haines and Taylor Smith paced Fayette, with 23 and 22 points, respectively.

Carlow next travels to Ohio Christian University seeking its first River States Conference win on Saturday.
