MELBOURNE, Fla. – Senior Lynsey Poole continued her dominance over Nova Southeastern Sunday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough for Palm Beach Atlantic, as they fell 78-51 to the Sharks in its second game of the CarMax Holiday Classic at Florida Tech.
Poole, who finished with a game-high 20 points, went 9-of-13 from the floor and also grabbed four rebounds. The senior has averaged 21.5 points in PBA’s two games against NSU this season.
The story of today's game, however, was Nova Southeastern’s ability to shoot the ball. The Sharks finished the game shooting nearly 57% (29-of-51) from the floor and 54% (14-of-26) from beyond the arc. They had four players finish in double-figures.
Palm Beach Atlantic got another solid effort from senior Ashley Dolberry, who finished with 13 points, including eight from the charity stripe and a team-high three assists. Chrissy Berenato wrapped up a solid showing in the CarMax Holiday Classic, dropping in a career-high eight points. She averaged six points and five rebounds in the two games.
As a team, the Sailfish were outrebounded 32-25, but won the battle of the offensive boards 9-to-8. Nova dished out a total of 23 assists compared to Palm Beach Atlantic’s five. PBA, who came in to today’s game averaging nearly six three-point field goals a game, made just two this afternoon.
The Sailfish finish 2012 with a record of 3-9 and will face off with UMass-Lowell in the first home game of 2013 on Thursday evening at 5 P.M.
