Albright, Alvernia women fall at home

READING - The Albright and Alvernia women's basketball teams lost on their home courts Monday night.

At the Bollman Center, The Albright College women's basketball team saw its five-game win streak end in a tight 65-59 loss to Messiah.

After Shannon Thomas was fouled on the fast break and made one free throw to give Albright a 56-55 lead with 3:42 left, Messiah answered with a 6-0 run on six free throws. Albright leading scorer and rebounder Kelecia Harris also fouled out during that stretch.

Sophomore Emily O'Donnell had another good shooting night, totaling a game-high 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

Albright falls to 7-3, 2-2 and will conclude a four-game homestand on Wednesday when the Lions face Stevenson in the Bollman Center.

At Jack McCloskey Court, Dickinson College (3-7) sophomore Jennifer Smith scored a career-high 29 points leading the Red Devils to a 92-70 win over Alvernia University (4-7) Monday evening in non-conference women's basketball action.

Alvernia returns to the conference schedule Wednesday when it hosts Hood College for a women's and men's doubleheader.
