CARLISLE, Pa. – Dickinson withstood a furious fourth-quarter rally by McDaniel to escape with a 60-57 Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball victory on Tuesday.

Jasmine Smith (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore Polytechnic Institute) led the Green Terror (1-4, 0-2 CC) with 19 points – 16 of which came in the fourth quarter. Melanie Yeomans (Myersville, Md./South Hagerstown) and Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) added 11 points each.

Kassidy Lesher led the Red Devils (1-3, 1-0 CC) with 15 points and 11 rebounds while Emily Padalino added 11 points and Claudia Maira had 10.

Trailing 2-0 after a Yeomans jumper, Padalino hit the second of two free throws with 7:19 on the first-quarter clock to ignite a 21-5 run over the next 9:20. Dickinson tallied eight straight to start the stretch before Caroline Ward (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore) hit two free throws with 3:29 showing to snap a four-minute scoreless drought.

Yeomans hit a layup with 2:09 remaining in the period for McDaniel's only other field goal of the first 10 minutes.

A Hannah Zajac (Houston, Texas/Clear Creek) 3-pointer with 23 ticks remaining in the second quarter cut the deficit to 28-21 before Maira hit a jumper in the waning seconds to make it a nine-point game at the break.

The Red Devils extended the lead to as large as 16 in the third quarter, opening the period on a 12-5 run to take a 42-26 lead on a Padalino triple with 4:12 to play.

Trailing 49-36, a Storer putback with 6:59 on the fourth-quarter clock started a 10-1 stretch that made it a two-point contest with 2:17 remaining. Smith had seven points during the run, including converting a three-point play to cap the stretch.

Hannah Heiring drained a triple on the ensuing Dickinson possession before Smith drove and scored to keep it a one-possession game.

After Smith hit a layup with 30.1 seconds to play cutting the deficit to 56-55, Maira hit all four of her free-throw attempts to secure the win.

The Green Terror returns to action at Washington (Md.) on Thursday. Game time is 7 p.m.
