How It Happened

Penn State Harrisburg's women's basketball team could not keep pace with the hot shooting Frostburg State Bobcats, falling 74-57.

The Lions would capitalize on the momentum in the second quarter going on an 11-0 run capped off by a three-pointer from Kendis Butler to take a 21-19 lead with 4:22 remaining in the second quarter. The Bobcats would respond and recapture a six-point lead heading into halftime.


The Lions defense could not contain the Bobcats shooters in the second half as Frostburg State shot 51 percent from the field. Shanique Mattis attempted to keep the Lions in the game, scoring 22 points while gathering in seven rebounds. Frostburg State would pull away in the fourth quarter, capturing the 74-57 victory.
