Cobb Leads Women's Basketball over Manhattan, 60-59
Feb. 15, 2004
Riverdale, NY - Senior captain Lindsay Cobb led the Loyola College women's basketball to a nail biting 60-59 victory over Manhattan Sunday afternoon at Draddy Gymnasium. The Greyhounds improve to 11-11 and 7-6 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference while the Lady Jaspers fall to 8-14 and 4-10 in the conference.
After exchanging baskets for the opening minutes of play, the Jaspers held a 13-12 lead at 13:00 before Loyola went on a 10-0 run, holding the Lady Jaspers scoreless for over four minutes of play.
Manhattan got back within four minutes later before Cobb established a strong 10-point Loyola lead with seven points in the last five minutes of the half, including a three at 1:17. The Greyhounds were up 36-26 at the half.
In the second half, Manhattan surged on a 14-0 run to claim the lead at 43-40. Cobb nailed her second three of the day to tie the game at 43. On the following Loyola play, Meghan Wood took the feed from Krystle Harrington and was fouled, completing a three-point play for a 46-43 lead with 12:27 remaining.
The squads tied again at 47 and 49 points before Manhattan took the lead again, 53-49 on a pair of free-throws from Rosalee Mason and a basket and 3-for-4 charity stripe shooting by Donette Reed.
The Greyhounds finally answered back with a basket by Cobb at 3:19, ending Loyola's near six-minute scoring drought. Cobb later tied the game at 57-57 with a basket at 1:43. That play was followed by a three-pointer by Loyola's Jill Henn with 58 seconds remaining to give Loyola a 60-57 lead. Manhattan's Nikolettaa Deutsch scored with 35 seconds on the clock for a 60-59 score. Both teams had chances to score in those final seconds but neither team was able to add to their point total.
Cobb finished today's game with 20 points and was followed by Katie Scherle with 14 and Lauren Troupe with 13, all in the second half. Troupe also added 10 rebounds for her first career double-double.
Manhattan was led by Mason with 22 and Reed with 10.
The Greyhounds will host Marist at home on Tuesday, February 17 at 7:00 p.m.
