COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – McDaniel jumped out to a 10-3 lead after the first quarter en route to a 49-41 win at Ursinus in Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball action on Saturday.

Lydia Konstanzer paced the Bears (9-8, 6-6 CC) with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

A Yeomans layup off an Emily Metzer (Shamong, N.J./Seneca) steal staked McDaniel to a 2-0 lead at the 8:19 mark of the first quarter.

Maya Kornfeld hit a layup with 6:56 showing for Ursinus' only field goal in 15 first-quarter attempts.

Tied at 3-all, Yeomans connected on a jumper with 4:26 showing to start a 7-0 run to end the period.

The lead swelled to 20-8 on two Caroline Ward (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore) free throws with 3:57 remaining in the second quarter en route to a 27-17 halftime lead.

The lead fluttered between 10 and 12 points for the first 9:17 of the third quarter before two Aliyah Stephens free throws and a single Konstanzer free throw in the final minute trimmed the margin to 35-27.

Six points from Konstanzer keyed a 7-0 burst that took the deficit from 41-29 with 8:38 on the clock to 41-36 with 4:54 to play.

Four straight points from Jasmine Smith (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore Polytechnic Institute) pushed the lead back to nine.
