THE SKINNY STORY
Franklin & Marshall finished the game with a 50-26 rebounding advantage, scoring 21 second-chance points in a 66-48 win over McDaniel.

THE LEADERS
Renie Tsomos (Forest Hill, Md./Bel Air) led the Green Terror with 15 points. She also had two steals and three rebounds.

FOR THE FOES
• Kenna Williams led the Diplomats with 13 points and 18 rebounds.
• Kristin Hamill added 13 points and 16 rebounds to make it two players with double-doubles.
• Haley Pilone had 14 points to lead the way in the scoring column.
• Sarah Pisani scored eight points and handed out seven assists.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• After Kenna Williams and Renie Tsomos traded layups in the game's first 1:35, Williams hit two free throws with 7:47 on the clock to give Franklin & Marshall the lead for good. A Kristin Hamill layup stretched the lead to 9-3 with 3:56 on the clock before an Anna Mondoro (Dumfries, Va./Homeschool) drained a 3-pointer to cut the deficit in half nearly a minute later. Hamill, however, scored four points in the final 2:50 to push the lead to 13-6 after one quarter.
• After a Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) jumper trimmed the margin to five a on the opening possession of the second period, Pilone recorded back-to-back steal-and-layups to push the lead out to 17-8 with 6:22 remaining. A Hamill three-point play and pair of Emily Moran treys keyed a 9-2 run that stretched the advantage to 26-12 before Allyson Shipley (Manchester, Md./Delone Catholic [Pa.]) jumper with 1:40 showing made it a 12-point game at halftime.
• An Emily Metzger (Shamong, N.J./Seneca) fast-break layup sparked a 7-0 burst to start the third quarter, closing the deficit to 26-21 just 1:26 into the period. The Diplomats, however, got two Haley Pilone free throws to spark a 10-0 counter, pushing the lead to 15 with 5:37 remaining. A Shipley 3-pointer closed the deficit to 40-31 with 2:01 showing but Jennifer Falconiero responded with a triple of her own en route to a 47-34 lead after three quarters.
• A Pilone 3-pointer and Williams layup stretched the lead to 18 just 2:20 into the fourth quarter. Jayce Klingenberg (Hampstead, Md./Manchester Valley) got a layup off a Jamese Word (Belmont, Mass./Lexington Christian Academy) steal and feed in the backcourt but that's as close as McDaniel could get the rest of the way.

THE INSIDE STORY
Renie Tsomos reached double figures for the third straight game.
• Kenna Williams and Kristin Hamill combined for 34 rebounds – nearly 45 percent of the total rebounds in the contest.
