ADRIAN, Mich. --- Carlow University women's basketball picked up a 67-59 win over Governors State on the final day of the Siena Heights Thanksgiving Classic Sunday.

The Celtics (5-5) had two players named to the all-tournament team list: senior guard Delaney Daly (SR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) and sophomore point guard Kamryn Lach (SO/Bethel Park, Pa.).

Carlow jumped out to a 17-11 lead over the Jaguars (4-7) after the first quarter.

The Celtics took a marginal 29-23 lead into halftime.

Governors State gained its first lead of the game in the third quarter off a three-point bucket with 3:43 remaining in the quarter.

Carlow regained the lead the next time down the court, but a Jaguars free throw tied the game and a Carlow turnover led to a foul, which gave Governors State a two-point lead with 2:31 left in the third.

It was the last time Governors State would lead, as Carlow gained momentum in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics out-rebounded Governors State, 52-29, and shot 40.6 percent from the field.

Sophomore Megan Ost (Apollo, Pa.) came off the bench to lead the team with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Daly scored 17 and Lach added 11, which included three treys. Senior Emma Stille (Westerville, Ohio) pulled down a game-high 19 rebounds for the second night in a row.
