IUP captures PSAC women’s basketball championship

Michael Love

For the second time in three years, the Indiana University of Pennsylvania women’s basketball team is the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference champion.

The Crimson Hawks topped Kutztown 72-57 in the tournament title game Sunday afternoon at Kutztown University.

Kutztown, the top seed from the PSAC East, led 22-9 after the first quarter. But IUP rallied with a 20-10 advantage in the second quarter before starting to take control after halftime.

The Crimson Hawks, the No. 1 seed from the PSAC West, improves to 26-3 on the season and advances to the NCAA Division II Tournament’s Atlantic Regional set for this weekend at a site to be determined.

IUP topped Seton Hill (67-53) and Bloomsburg (85-57) on the way to the title game. It made the run after losing two of three to close out the regular season.

Carolyn Appleby, a senior guard from Greensburg Central Catholic, was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. She scored 26 points to lead the Crimson Hawks in the title game, shooting 8 of 12 from the field and 11 of 13 from the free throw line.

Lauren Wolosik (North Catholic) and Natalie Myers (Burrell) each added 12 points, while Brittany Robinson contributed 11, and Lexi Griggs (Vincentian) scored nine.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
