Strong 2nd Half Not Enough for Women's Hoops

ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. - Wesley College's women's basketball team outplayed St. Mary's in the second half but it was not enough to overcame a 19 point halftime deficit, falling to the Seahawks, 73-57, on Saturday afternoon at O'Brien ARC Arena.  The Wolverines now stand at 3-11 overall and 0-7 in the Capital Athletic Conference.

Wesley trailed, 44-23 at the half but opened the second period on a 17-6 run to cut the deficit to just ten points with 13:25 left in regulation.  Included in the rally was a stretch where the Wolverines scored nine straight points by four different scorers to make the score, 50-40 in favor of the Seahawks.

St. Mary's then scored the next six points to stop the bleeding and Wesley would not get any closer than a 12 point differential for the remainder of the game.

The Wolverines, who outscored the Seahawks in the second half, 34-29, were led by Roniece Williams with a double-double 13 points and 12 rebounds. Brionna Johnson and Tiara White were also in double figures and finished one and two rebounds shy of double-doubles themselves.

Kiara Johnson also finished with nine points for Wesley, who travels to Penn State Harrisburg for a 6 pm tipoff on January 22.
