Hackett leads SU past Frostburg State in overtime, 65-64

SALISBURY, Md. – Freshman Anna Hackett scored all 10 of the Sea Gulls' points in overtime as the Salisbury University women's basketball team hung on to top Frostburg State University, 65-64, in Capital Athletic Conference action at Maggs Physical Activities Center on Saturday.

Frostburg State's Brynn Arnone opened the extra session with a jumper for a 57-55 lead but Hackett knocked down a pair of free throws and later drained a jump shot of her own with 2:21 remaining to give SU (6-5, 4-1 CAC) the lead for good.

The Bobcats used a three-pointer from Elaine Hummel to get within 63-62 with 46 seconds left but Hackett responded with a bucket at the 27-second mark to put the game out of reach.

Hackett scored a game- and career-high 23 points on 7-of-18 shooting to help Salisbury snap a two-game skid. Senior Milan Dry picked up her second double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds while junior Katie McGahagan and senior Meghan Dunn tied for a game-high three steals.

Salisbury jumped out to a 42-36 advantage six minutes into the second half as freshman Lexi Kebetz hit a three-pointer. FSU (4-10, 2-4) then embarked on an 8-2 run to tie game at 44-44 with 11:32 left in the period. The game was tied six more times the rest of the way.

The Sea Gulls erased a four-point Frostburg State lead with a 7-1 stretch to take a 20-19 lead at the 5:59 mark of the first half when Dry hit consecutive layups. Hackett started the run with a three-point basket to cut the FSU advantage to 16-13.

Kebetz knocked down another three-pointer a minute later to open a 23-19 edge but Arnone and Elizabeth Erickson each had jumpers for FSU to knot the game at 23-23.

The teams went into the break tied at 29-29.

Erickson led a group of three FSU players in double figures with 17 points, shooting 8-of-16 from the field. She added a team-best eight rebounds. Hummel (13 points) and Arnone (10) also landed in double digits.

Salisbury next heads to Wesley College for a 6 p.m., tip on Wednesday.
