LANCASTER, Pa. – McDaniel hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final 1:13 to rally and defeat Franklin & Marshall 67-64 in Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball action on Saturday.

Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) led the Green Terror (4-5 2-3 CC) with 20 points, 11 rebounds and four steals. Jasmine Smith (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore Polytechnic Institute) added 13 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Haley Pilone paced the Diplomats (4-4, 2-4 CC) with 25 points. Kristin Hamill added 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Trailing by as many as four in the fourth quarter, including by a 58-56 margin on a Hamill jumper with 2:02 to play, Halle Burgess (Ashton, Md./Good Counsel) hit her only field goal of the game – a 3-pointer with 1:13 on the clock to give the visitors a one-point edge.

After an offensive foul in the backcourt, Storer drained a triple late in the shot clock to stretch the lead to four.

Pilone canned a 3-pointer with fewer than five ticks remaining to cut the deficit to 65-64 but Storer hit both free throws at the other end and then added a steal to seal the victory.

After the teams traded points over the first nearly seven minutes of the first quarter, Pilone hit a pair of 3-pointers to give Franklin & Marshall a 15-10 lead. Two Storer free throws with 1:01 showing trimmed the deficit to three after one quarter.

McDaniel used a pair of triples to take a 32-29 lead with 3:59 to play in the second period but the Diplomats responded with six straight points en route to a 36-35 halftime lead.

Franklin & Marshall extended the lead to as large as 46-38 on a Devandria Bernard layup with 4:54 to play in the third period but four points from Marley Burgess (Ashton, Md./Connelly School of the Holy Child) helped draw the visitors to within 48-46 at the end of the period.

Burgess finished with seven points.

Brown added 15 points for the Diplomats, who had a 52-30 advantage on the glass but was forced into 20 turnovers.

McDaniel returns to action at home against Susquehanna on Wednesday, Jan. 3. Game time is 7 p.m.
