Emmitsburg, Md. (February 5, 2018) – St. Francis Brooklyn scored 42 points in the second half to power past Mount St. Mary's, 75-56, in Northeast Conference women's basketball action on Monday night at Knott Arena.

Mount St. Mary's led for nearly the entire first quarter until the final minute when Abby Anderson made three free throws after getting fouled from beyond the arc, putting the Terriers on top by one, 17-16.

St. Francis Brooklyn was able to maintain their lead throughout the second quarter, and a bucket in transition from Casey Carangelo to close out the half pushed the Terrier lead to 33-26 heading into the intermission.

Leading by seven coming out of the break, St. Francis Brooklyn pushed it to double-digits at the 5:52 mark following a three from Jade Johnson and layup from Carangelo.

The Mount and St. Francis Brooklyn traded buckets for much of the remainder of the frame, but another three from Johnson in the final minute made it a 55-41 Terrier advantage heading into the fourth.

Ashlee White hit 1-of-2 from the line to open the scoring in the fourth before a 12-0 run from the Terriers over the ensuing three minutes of play extended it to a 67-42 game.

The Mount wasn't able to cut the deficit to under 20 points until the final minute of play, as St. Francis Brooklyn rolled on to the 75-56 victory.

Johnson netted a game-high 22 points, going 8-of-12 from the field and 4-for-7 from long range, while also adding seven rebounds. Alex Delaney (13 pts) and Maria Palarino (11) also chipped in with double-figures in the contest.

For the Mount, White registered 16 points which included a 4-for-6 mark from three-point land, while Katrice Dickson added 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting and a 2-for-3 mark from downtown.

Daly Sullivan went just 1-of-6 from long range, but in the process tied the Mount St. Mary's program record for most threes by a freshman in a single season. Sullivan matched Lauren Howell's mark of 55 three-pointers during her rookie campaign in 2007-08.
