McShea Drops Second-Straight Double-Double, Saints Fall To Blue Jays

McShea Drops Second-Straight Double-Double, Saints Fall To Blue Jays

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. - Freshman Katie McShea recorded her second-straight double-double in two days including a career-high 17 rebounds, but the Marymount University women's basketball team's second-half comeback fell short on Monday night at Elizabethtown College, dropping a 69-55 decision in a non-conference matchup.

A slow first half for the Saints (8-4) had them trailing at the half, 38-15. With some halftime adjustments, they came out in the second half for back-to-back 20-point quarters on 40.6-percent shooting. 

After a six three-pointer day on Sunday against Gallaudet, junior Regan Lohr was held to two points in the first half by the Blue Jays, but fired off three in the second half en route to an 11-point night. 

McShea, however, was the leader on both ends of the floor for the game, dropping in a game-high 22 points to go along with a game- and career-high 17 rebounds, a game- and career-high three blocks, three steals and an assist. She dominated on the glass with a game-high six offensive boards and a game-high 11 defensive boards. 

The Saints will look to bounce back in their final game of 2018 on Sunday, December 3o, traveling to Kean University. Start time is set for 2 p.m.
