ADRIAN, Mich. --- Carlow University women's basketball lost to host Siena Heights University, 84-69, at the SHU Thanksgiving Tournament Saturday.

The Saints (7-1) started off with a strong 20-9 lead after the first quarter, taking a 44-23 lead into halftime against the Celtics (4-5). Carlow fared better in the second half, out-scoring the Saints, 25-13, in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit.

Siena Heights shot better on the day, but pulled down just four more rebounds than the Celtics.

The most significant difference came from the benches, where the Saints' subs put up 27 points compared to Carlow's six.

Kamryn Lach (SO/Bethel Park, Pa.) was 6 for 11 from the field with five treys to lead the Celtics with 19 points.

Delaney Daly (SR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) scored 17 points, and Angelica Orozco (SO/Filmore, Calif.) added 12. Senior Emma Stille (Westerville, Ohio) pulled down a game-high 19 boards in the effort, and Keagen Brownlee (SO/Pittsburgh, Pa.) dished out four assists.
Carlow is back on the court tomorrow for the final day of the Siena Heights Thanksgiving Tournament in Adrian, Mich. The Celtics face Governor State at 2 p.m., and links to live coverage can be found at https://bit.ly/WBB_1920.
