The Carlow women’s basketball team dropped a non-conference game to Malone University, 70-47, on Saturday, December 10, in Canton, Ohio.
The Celtics (5-3/0-2 RSC) led, 12-8, after one quarter, but the NCAA Division II Pioneers (4-4) outscored Carlow, 62-35, across the final three frames.
In the feisty contest, both teams were whistled for 23 personal fouls, but the Pioneers made 80.6 percent (25 of 31) of their free throws and the Celtics made only 40.7 percent (11 of 27).
Malone also earned 14 steals and forced Carlow into 25 turnovers, turning those into 24 points.
Paced by forward Emma Stille, the Celtics outscored the Pioneers in the paint, 24-14.
Stille (FR/Columbus, Ohio) recorded 10 points, eight rebounds and three steals. Kayla Brownlee (SO/Pittsburgh, Pa.) added 10 points and five rebounds. Alexis Yanief (JR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) had nine points, three assists and two steals.
The Celtics look to rebound Monday, at River States Conference foe and crosstown rival Point Park.
