It was a cold day outside, but the Tars were able to turn up the heat and secure a 62-56 win over the Wheeling Jesuit Cardinals. The Tars move up to 7-2 on the season, while the Cardinals drop to 2-6.
Senior guard Jennifer Musgrove led the team once again with 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists, securing her third double-double of the season. Sophomore forward Brittainy Daiger joined Musgrove with her first double-double of the season collecting 10 points and 11 boards. Two other Tars hit the double digits as Rachael Malatesta garnered 12 points, going 4-4 from the charity stripe, and Jessica Pressley chipped in 10 to the final score.
Jocelyn Kelly had a big day on defense supplying the Tars with four of their 10 blocks, Musgrove followed close behind knocking down three more, with Daiger in pursuit contributing two to fire-up the defensive end.
The Cardinals relied heavily on the work of Lindsay Stuckey to get the job done. Stuckey supplied 36 of the Cardinal’s 56 total points, sinking 11-19 from the floor, connecting on 5-8 from long range, and 9-13 from the charity stripe. The sophomore guard also collected a double-double for the day with the addition of 11 boards.
The first half got off to a slow start for both teams with Rollins making 7 of 32 and Wheeling almost matching with 7 of 33 shots from the floor. Rollins topped the Cardinals in points outside the arc sinking 2-9, surpassing Wheeling Jesuit’s 1-12. For the Cardinals, their first half points came from the 9-11 points sunk from the line. Both teams were matched in points from the bench 6, and second chance points 8.
The score was tied five times and the lead changed hands three times throughout the rocky first half. With one minute left the score was 22-19 Rollins, and a slick move by Erin Kirkwood with one minute left allowed her to steal a Cardinal throw-in and sink a lay-up to advance Rollins 24-19.
Wheeling Jesuit was hot on the Tars’ trail and the score was quickly tied at 24 before the half was over with two free throws by Stuckey with under 55 seconds left, followed by a 3 pointer thirty seconds later.
With the start of the second half under way, two good free throws from Musgrove, a three pointer from Malatesta, and a streak of defensive blocks allowed the Tars to pull ahead on the scoreboard. Another three from Malatesta brought the score to 32-26 only three minutes into the second half. The Tars took off throughout the rest of the game and held onto their lead while Wheeling-Jesuit put in their best efforts to remain within range.
The Tars will be back on the road to play Saint Leo in their second Sunshine State Conference match-up of the year. Fans can listen to all f the action live on www.RollinsSports.tv
