Murray’s Free Throw Lifts Women’s Basketball Over Quinnipiac
Kate Murray put home a free throw with 2.6 seconds remaining to push Army Women's Basketball past Quinnipiac, 51-50, Saturday afternoon at the People's United Center.
The freebie came on the heels of Quinnipiac's Rose Caverly hitting a trey to even the score at 50 with six seconds left in regulation. After missing the first shot from the line, Murray sunk the second to help Army improve to 3-2 on the season. The Bobcats dropped to 2-2.
Murray finished with a game-high 16 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field and was 7-of-10 from the line. She was one of three Black Knights to score in double-figures, as Alisa Fallon finished with 12 points and Natalie Stralkus with 11. Fallon also corralled 12 rebounds to record the double-double.
Army is now 2-6 all-time against the Bobcats. Quinnipiac won the first six meetings in the series, but the Black Knights have claimed the last two. This was Murray's fourth double-digit scoring effort of the season and the 22nd of her career. Fallon reached double figures for the fourth time this season and the 24th time of her career. This was her second double-double of the season and fifth of her career. Sarah Bohn dished out five assists, which marked her third five-assist game of the season. The Black Knights are 3-1 against MAAC opponents. Read more.
