THE SKINNY STORY
Franklin & Marshall overcame a 1-for-18 shooting start to the game to score 19 points in each of the final three quarters for a 60-51 win over McDaniel.

THE LEADERS
• Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) led the Green Terror with 15 points.

FOR THE FOES
• Kristin Hamill led the Diplomats with 27 points and 12 rebounds.
• Kenna Williams added 16 points and 19 rebounds.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• Back-to-back second-chance layups from Mallory Conroy (Ellicott City, Md./Marriotts Ridge) and an Anna Mondoro (Dumfries, Va./Homeschool) putback coupled with a Mondoro triple staked McDaniel to a 9-0 lead in the game's first 4:03. After a Sarosha Parsons free throw, Mondoro converted a driving layup. With 3:49 on the clock, a Kenna Williams layup accounted for Franklin & Marshall's lone made field goal of the first quarter. Back-to-back Hannah Zajac (Houston, Texas/Clear Creek) jumpers pushed the lead to 15-3 after 10 minutes.
• Two Ellie Connelly (Sharpsburg, Md./Boonsboro) layups around two Parsons free throws stretched the lead to 19-5. Natalie Mehl (Hamilton, N.J./Steinert) and Liv Storer each converted a bucket for a 23-5 lead with 7:45 remaining. A D'Nasha Bellamy-Greene layup with 7:19 on the clock started a 13-0 run over the next 4 minutes, 30 seconds to close to within five. Jamese Word (Belmont, Mass./Lexington Christian Academy) momentarily halted the run before Williams and Hamill each hit a bucket in the final 1:42 to close the deficit to 25-22 at halftime.
• The teams traded baskets over the first six minutes of the third quarter before two Hamill free throws with 3:30 on the clock gave the Diplomats their first lead of the game. A Mehl triple and Zajac layup put McDaniel back in front 38-34 before the teams once again traded points on the next two possessions. Three free throws from Hamill and two more from Williams gave the Diplomats a 41-40 edge after three quarters.
• After Connelly made it a 45-44 game with two free throws, Hamill went on a personal 6-0 run to stretch the lead to six. Back-to-back Williams layups pushed the lead to 59-48 with 2:18 to play before a Storer 3-pointer and one Maia Lockhart free throw set the final margin.

THE INSIDE STORY
• Franklin & Marshall finished with a 50-21 rebounding advantage, including pulling down 26 offensive boards.
