BECKLEY, W.Va. --- Carlow University women's basketball stuck around with NAIA No. 25-ranked WVU Tech in a River States Conference game Tuesday, but ended up on the losing end of a 60-51 contest.

The Celtics (8-17, 3-9 RSC) trailed by only four points at the end of the first quarter, but the Golden Bears (22-6, 14-0 RSC) - who are undefeated in conference action so far this season - went on a

16-4 run in the second quarter to take a 10-point lead into halftime.

Carlow out-scored WVU Tech, 16-15, in the third quarter, and the teams scored 12 points apiece in the fourth quarter.

A three-pointer by sophomore Kamryn Lach (Bethel Park, Pa.) cut the WVU Tech lead to six points with under two minutes remaining in the game, but the Celtics could not put together a comeback.

Carlow committed 25 turnovers that led to 17 points for the Golden Bears. Each team shot under 35 percent from the field, but the Golden Bears out-rebounded Carlow, 49-33.

The Celtics scored 21 points off the bench to WVU Tech's 13, and the Golden Bears scored 30 points in the paint to Carlow's eight.

The Celtics shot 66.7 percent from the free throw line compared to WVU Tech's 78.6 percent.

Lach led all scorers with 13 points, including three treys. Emma Stille (SR/Westerville, Ohio) was 3 for 3 from the foul line and pulled down 12 rebounds on the night.

Carlow hosts the University of Rio Grande (Ohio) Saturday, Feb. 15 for a 1 p.m. RSC game.

It is a Black Out game, and fans are asked to bring a nonperishable food item and/or a blanket as a donation for the Carlow Closet and the homeless shelter. Black long sleeve tees will be on sale for $15, with the proceeds benefiting Alternative Spring Break.
