Ashley Pelzek scored a career-high 22 points on 8-for-12 shooting from the field to lead the Navy women's basketball team over visiting Providence, 72-42, last night at Alumni Hall.

Navy's Lauren Skrel scored 13 and a career-high 10 assists.

It marked the third time in the program's history that a Midshipman registered a double double in points and assists.

Angela Dobbs was the first Navy player to accomplish the feat with 21 points and 10 assists at Bucknell on Jan. 11, 1992. Kim Jackson had 12 points and 11 assists against Bucknell on Feb. 17, 1994.

Navy (2-4) opened the game on a 10-4 run, with six points from Kate Hobbs.

Providence (0-8), which dropped its 24th consecutive game, was led by Shauna Snyder's team-high 13 points. Kristen Brown added 12 points.

Towson 59, Robert Morris 51: Kelly Robinson led the Tigers (5-1) with 14 points and six rebounds in the win over the late-rallying Colonials (4-3).

The Tigers won their third straight game and ended the Colonials' two-game win streak.

Towson shot 41.9 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from behind the three-point line. It was the fourth game this season the Tigers have shot better than 40 percent from the field.

St. Mary's 74, Hood 37: Freshman Megan Uglik scored a game-high 18 points to lead five players in double figures for the host Seahawks (4-4).

St. Mary's took a 34-17 lead at the half and held the Blazers (2-5) to 22.6 percent shooting from the floor in the first half and outscored them 40-20 in the second.

Danielle Gallagher led Hood with 15 points and 14 rebounds.

Moravian 66, Frostburg 63: Jenny Hackleman (16 points) and Stephanie Seaman (13 points) each went 2-for-2 from the line in the closing minute of play to seal the win for the Greyhounds (6-1) in the opening round of the Diversified Invitational in Scranton, Pa.

The Bobcats (4-3) led 63-62 before Hackleman made her free throws. Seaman got a defensive rebound, was fouled with two seconds left and added the insurance points.

Tracey Little led Frostburg with 12 points.

Morgan State 55, Savannah State 51: Whitney Johnson paced the visiting Lady Bears (1-5) with 17 points. Sharonda Watson added 11 points, including three three-pointers.
