Sophomore guard Jessica Pressley’s last second three-point attempt bounced out in the Rollins women’s basketball team’s 51-49 loss to Sunshine State Conference opponent Nova Southeastern at Warden Arena on Wednesday evening. The Tars dropped to 9-4 overall and 1-3 in SSC play, while the Sharks improved to 10-5, 3-1 with the win.
Senior guard Jennifer Musgrove picked up her fifth double-double of the season with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Musgrove also tallied a game-high five assists and a team-high three steals. Pressley added nine points from the bench, and junior forward Ines Teuma led all players with 13 rebounds.
The teams appeared evenly matched in the first half, seeing the score tied six different times. Rollins pulled away towards the end of the half, going on a 9-0 run over nearly five minutes. NSU’s Tara Haddock launched in a three-pointer to beat the buzzer to end the first half, cutting Rollins’ lead to five (28-23) at halftime.
The Tars held on to their lead through much of the second half, but a three-pointer by Nova Southeastern’s Abbie Tepe tied the game at 37 at the 10:16 mark. That marked the beginning of a 16-3 run by the Sharks over the next seven minutes, giving NSU the largest lead of the game at 10. Three-pointers by junior forward Jocelyn Kelly and junior guard Rachael Malatesta cut the lead to four with 1:30 left. NSU and Rollins each hit one free throw, and Kelly’s basket with 15 seconds left put Rollins within two. Rollins got the ball back after a missed free throw by NSU, but Pressley’s last ditch effort came up short, ending the game at 51-49.
NSU center Stephanie Sarosi led all players with 19 points, shooting an impressive 9-11 from the field. Eliza Allen led the Sharks on the boards, grabbing nine rebounds, and Tepe added nine points, six rebounds, and four steals.
The Sharks out-shot Rollins in the game, posting a 36.4 shooting percentage while the Tars finished at 25.4 percent. Rollins held an overwhelming 57-42 rebound advantage, and the Tars also fared better at the free throw line, shooting 57.1 percent compared to NSU’s 29.4 percent.
Rollins will return to Warden Arena to host SSC leader Lynn (14-2, 5-0) on Saturday, January 19. Tip-off is scheduled for 2:00 p.m., and fans can watch and listen to all the action live on the Citizens Bank of Florida Tars Sports Network at www.RollinsSports.tv.
