WESTMINSTER, Md. – Dickinson scored five straight points late to help claim a 56-53 victory over McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball action on Wednesday.

Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) led the Green Terror (9-11, 7-8 CC) with 15 points and eight rebounds.

Kassidy Lesher recorded a double-double with 22 points and 16 rebounds to pace the Red Devils (7-13, 7-8 CC), who forged a tie for the fifth and final playoff spot with McDaniel and now hold the tiebreaker with a sweep of the season series.

Dickinson hit its first seven shots of the game and nine of its first 10 to build an 18-4 lead with 2:51 to play in the first quarter.

A Jasmine Smith (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore Polytechnic Institute) 3-pointer cut the deficit to 11 en route to a 21-10 game at the end of the first 10 minutes.

Trailing 25-13, Storer canned two free throws midway through the second period to spark an 8-1 close to the half, drawing the hosts within 26-21 at the break.

The Red Devils limited McDaniel to just five points through the first 8:46 of the third quarter, building a 45-26 advantage.

A Caroline Ward (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore) triple capped the quarter and ignite a fourth-quarter run for the Green Terror.

A Melanie Yeomans (Myersville, Md./South Hagerstown) jumper with 7:05 to play made it a 48-33 game and sparked a 17-2 run over the next nearly five minutes to tie the game at 50-all.

A pair of Halle Burgess (Ashton, Md./Good Counsel) keyed the rally before a Smith layup and Hannah Zajac (Houston, Texas/Clear Creek) ultimately tied the game.

Lesher hit the second of two free throws with 2:09 on the clock to reestablish the lead for Dickinson.

Two Hannah Heiring free throws 34 seconds later stretched the lead to three before Lizzie Becker drove the baseline for a 55-50 lead with 33.2 seconds showing.

Smith bounced a 3-pointer in from the right wing with 16.0 seconds remaining but Lauren McBride hit the first of two free throws with 11.6 seconds to make it a three-point game.

McDaniel had a look at the tie and got the rebound but could not get a second attempt off before the horn sounded.

Smith finished with 12 points.

The Green Terror returns to action at Swarthmore on Saturday. Game time is 1 p.m.
