Women’s college basketball
Centa a ‘wrecking crew’
for Saint Mary’s, 77-57
The Saint Mary’s basketball team held off a determined Anderson squad for a 77-57 victory on Tuesday night.
The Belles came out of the gate on fire to turn a one-point deficit at 10-9 into a 32-14 lead in less than a ten-minute span in the first half. During that 23-4 run, the Belles hit 10-of-13 shots from the floor, and Plymouth grad Jessica Centa was a one-person wrecking crew when it came to scoring points against the Ravens’ defense in the first half. The senior forward was a perfect 6-of-6 from the floor and 4-of-4 from the charity stripe in the first half. On two occasions, Centa has as many points as Anderson had as a team in the opening 20 minutes of play.
Centa finished the victory just a point behind her career high of 18 with a 17-point effort. The senior was a perfect 6-of-6 from the floor and missed her first free throw of the 2011-12 campaign in the second half for a 5-of-6 showing from the line.
The Belles (2-2) will travel to Ohio Northern for the Polar Bears’ Thanksgiving Classic on Saturday and Sunday. Saint Mary’s will square off against the hosts from Ohio Northern in the first game of the tournament on Saturday, Nov. 26 beginning at 4 p.m.
