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
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.
