BOX SCORE

PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University women's basketball outlasted Indiana University Kokomo, 66-59, in a River States Conference matchup Tuesday at Donahue Pavilion.

The Celtics (7-9, 2-2 RSC) snapped a four-game losing streak with the win, pulling away in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.

The teams ended the first half tied 29-all. The Cougars (9-10, 1-3 RSC) made quick work of Carlow's full-court press, and the Celtics missed a few easy buckets in the paint that could have put the game out of reach early.

Carlow came out of the locker room at halftime with a renewed energy, down only 46-45 at the end of the third quarter.

Kamryn Lach (SO/Bethel Park, Pa.) hit a trey on a fast break to give the Celtics a seven-point lead with five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

With time running out, the Cougars were forced to foul in an attempt to regain possession, and Carlow converted at the line.

Neither team shot above 40 percent from the field on the night, but the Celtics shot 57.1 percent from the foul line.

The teams were otherwise evenly matched, with Kokomo pulling down just one more rebound than the Celtics.

Senior forward Emma Stille (Westerville, Ohio) put up her sixth double-double of the season to lead Carlow with 17 points and 16 rebounds.

Keagen Brownlee (SO/Pittsburgh, Pa.) shot 50 percent from the field, including four treys, to add 13 points, and Angelica Orozco (SO/Filmore, Calif.) added 11 points and five steals. Lach dished out six assists on the night, and Brownlee added five.
