BOX SCORE

MIDWAY, Ky. --- Carlow University women's basketball could not overcome a first half deficit and lost, 77-56, on the road to Midway (Ky.) University in a River States Conference game Saturday.

The Eagles (12-3, 3-2 RSC), who are currently tied atop the RSC West Division standings with Asbury (Ky.), jumped out to a quick lead over the Celtics (7-10, 2-3 RSC).

Midway led, 39-20, at halftime. Carlow picked up the pace in the second half, out-scoring the Eagles 19-15 in the third quarter and 38-36 in the second half, but it was not enough to erase Midway's first half lead.

Carlow shot just 35.5 percent from the field and committed 15 turnovers that led to 16 Midway points. The Eagles shot 71.4 percent from the free throw line and added 36 points off the bench compared to Carlow's 14.

Emma Stille (SR/Westerville, Ohio) put up a double-double performance with a team-high 12 points and 15 rebounds. Kamryn Lach (SO/Bethel Park, Pa.) contributed 11 points and five assists, and Ashlyn Jonczak (JR/Natrona Heights, Pa.) was 4 for 6 from the field with 10 points in the effort.
