Women's Basketball: Terror can't keep pace with Ursinus

Ursinus doubled up McDaniel in the first half and kept the lead between 15 and 25 points for the entire second half, keying a 68-53 win Thursday in Collegeville, Pa.

Anna Mondoro led the Green Terror (9-5, 4-5 Centennial Conference) with 12 points.


Lydia Konstanzer led the Bears (9-4, 6-2) with 28 points, Aliyah Stephens added 17 points, and Gabby Downs chipped in 10.

Mondoro hit a pair of 3-pointers in the first 3:20 around a pair of Toni Suler baskets and a pair of Aliyah Stephens free throws for a 6-all deadlock. Konsantzer, however, hit a back-to-back layups to give Ursinus the lead for good.


After a Jayce Klingenberg (Manchester Valley) jumper made it a 10-8 game, Konstanzer converted on the break with 3:54 showing to spark a 6-0 burst that stretched the lead to eight en route to a 21-12 lead after the first period.

Five straight points from the Bears pushed the lead to 26-12 with 6:54 showing in the second quarter. A Mondoro triple made it a 32-18 game but Maya Kornfeld and Konstanzer each hit two free throws in the final 1:55 to make it a 36-18 score at the break.

A Stephens layup 41 seconds into the third quarter gave the hosts a 20-point lead for the first time. The third-quarter advantage swelled as large as 24 when Konstanzer hit a layup to make it 47-23 with 6:10 on the clock.

McDaniel returns to action Jan. 12 at Haverford. Game time is 1 p.m.
