Box Score

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Jaz Green scored a career-high 29 points and Kasie Parker added 27, but Palm Beach Atlantic women’s basketball team crumbled in crunch time and loss to crosstown rivals Northwood University 92-87 on Monday night.

Green and Parker finished off their Sailfish career in fine fashion, with Green’s 29 points leading all scorers while also bringing down a team-high seven boards. Parker added six rebounds, four assists and three steals to her 27 tallies. The Chuluota, Florida native tied the single-season record for steals in a season (85) and set the record for points in a season (516).

After a back-and-forth first half that saw 15 lead changes, Palm Beach Atlantic took command in the second stanza. The Seahawks did a good job of keeping the Sailfish close, allowing PBA’s biggest lead to reach only seven points. With seconds remaining on the clock, Northwood got a clutch old-fashioned three point play to tie the game and send it to overtime.  NU then outscored PBA 9-4 in the extra period.

Palm Beach Atlantic committed an uncharacteristically-high 15 turnovers while only forcing Northwood into 12 of their own. The Seahawks outrebounded the Sailfish 40-35, and shot 83% (30-of-36) from the charity stripe compared to PBA’s 65% (17-of-26).

Joining Green and Parker in double-digits on the evening was sophomore Kimmi McIntosh, who finished with 10. Freshman Alecha Gibbs scored eight points and had seven rebounds.

The Sailfish finish the season 7-19.
