GAME NOTES

ABOUT THE MOUNT

  • A late fourth quarter surge from Mount St. Mary's powered the Mountaineers to a 71-63 victory over Loyola on Saturday afternoon at Knott Arena. The Mount improved to 1-6 on the year as new Head Coach Maria Marchesano got her first victory at the helm of the Mountaineers. Juliette Lawless narrowly missed out on a double-double with 18 points and nine rebounds, as she set new career highs in both categories. The junior went 5-of-7 from the field and a perfect 8-for-8 from the foul line. Ashlee White netted 15 points to go along with six rebounds, while Katrice Dickson (14 pts) and Kayla Agentowicz (10 pts) also finished in double figures.
  • After going the first five games of the season with no more than three players reaching double-figures in the same game, the Mountaineers have received double-digits from four players in each of the last two contests. Last week vs. Lehigh, Agentowicz (20 pts), Daly Sullivan (14), Dickson (12) and Lawless (12) each scored over 10, and last time out vs. Loyola, Lawless (18), White (15), Dickson (14) and Agentowicz (10) scored in double figures.

In November, Agentowicz racked up three straight games with 20-plus points, as she set new career highs in points (24), field goals made (10), three-point­ers made (4) and minutes (40).
