ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s basketball team hit the hardwood on Friday evening for the second time in 24 hours as they traveled across the state to take on Eckerd College. Despite a solid performance off the bench from senior Kristine Webb who did not miss a shot and finished with 16 points, the Tritons utilized a balanced scoring load to hold on 66-56.
Coming off the bench for the first time this season, Webb finished 7-of-7 from the field for game-high honors of 16 points while adding in four rebounds in 19 minutes of action.
Sophomore Selethia Jackson continued her good work on the boards as she pulled down 12 rebounds to go along with seven points. Ashley Dolberry finished with nine points and four assists while hitting all six of her free-throw attempts.
EC led 32-26 at the half on Friday as they closed out the half in impressive fashion to hold the six point advantage.
PBA would cut the lead as close as two points in the second-half on a layup by Webb with 14:30 remaining to put the score at 40-38 but that would be as close as things would get for the young Fish as they dropped their sixth consecutive contest.
The Tritons (5-3) were paced by Kati Rausberg’s 15 points while Stacey Young collected a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Tijana Brdar posted 14 points while Ashley Lutz chipped in with 13 points to give EC four double-digit scorers. In total, Eckerd played only seven players with six of the seven registering at least 24 minutes.
PBA will have the next few weeks off from school and basketball as they are awarded time to spend with their families over the holidays. The Lady Fish will be back in action next on January 6th as they will travel to Melbourne, Florida to take on Florida Tech at 7 p.m.
