Lions drop second straight game in final minutes

The College lost another heartbreaker and dropped to 0-2 Wednesday in a 72-68 loss to Moravian College.

Sophomore guard Hillary Murray sunk a three-point shot—and the Lions’ hopes of victory— to put the Greyhounds ahead 69-68 with 43 seconds left in the game.

The Lions lead for a majority of the second half, but their advantage slowly began to disappear as the Greyhounds went on a 12-0 run.

“We got a little tentative,” head coach Dawn Henderson said.  “We didn’t cut as hard and we were just tentative towards the end.”

Junior guard Kelsey Kutch finished with 20 points and nine rebounds.  Sophomore guard/forward Hannah Tait added 19 points, seven assists, and six rebounds.

Tait also hit her second buzzer-beating shot of the season and gave the Lions a two-point lead at halftime.

Henderson was disappointed in the loss, but said the team took a step in the right direction.

“[Moravian] is a very good team.  I’m proud of our effort today and we took a giant leap forward.”
