BOX SCORE

NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. --- Carlow University women's basketball improved to 4-2 in USCAA action with a 63-39 win over Penn State New Kensington Tuesday.

It was the second time in as many weeks the teams faced one another, with Carlow winning the first meeting by a similar margin, 66-41.

The Celtics (4-4 overall, 4-2 USCAA) went on an 11-0 run to start the game and took a 34-12 lead into halftime against the Lions (1-6).

New Kensington outscored the Celtics, 13-11, in the third quarter, but the Lions' second half surge was not enough to erase the first half deficit.

New Kensington shot better from beyond the arc, but the Celtics shot better from the field and from the foul line. Carlow shot 61.1 percent from the line and snagged 16 more rebounds than the Lions.

Sophomore Megan Ost (Apollo, Pa.) picked up a double-double and led all scorers with 23 points and 10 boards. Delaney Daly (SR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) was 3 for 3 from the line and added 10 points.
 
Carlow is back on the road this weekend for the Siena Heights Thanksgiving tournament in Adrian, Mich. The Celtics play Nov. 30 at 4 p.m. against host Siena Heights. Links to live coverage can be found at https://bit.ly/WBB_1920.
