FROSTBURG — Three players scored in double figures but a fierce Frostburg State rally came up short as the Bobcats fell 65-60 to Mary Washington in Capital Athletic Conference action Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.
Senior Christian Jackson led all players with 19 points, including 12 in the second half. Senior DeSean Antoine contributed 14, while freshman Royce Hunsberger came off the bench to add 10 behind a pair of three-pointers.
A pair of second half runs, one by each team, excited the home crowd and had Bobcat Arena shaking as FSU used that energy to collect an 11-0 run that pulled the Bobcats to within two, 58-56, with just three minutes to play.
Behind some late free throws, Mary Washington was able to push its lead back to eight, 65-57, with just 13 seconds left.
The Eagles (8-11, 3-4 CAC) opened a 13-point second half lead, 58-45, thanks in large part to a 12-0 run that took just under four minutes midway through the stanza.
As a unit, the Bobcats shot 20 of 49 (40.8 percent) from the field and both teams made six three-pointers. However, FSU was outrebounded 41-29 and Mary Washington held an 18-6 advantage in second-chance points.
Bradley Reister and Sean Armstrong each scored 17 points to pace the Eagles. Armstrong and Dylan Farinet each had nine rebounds as Mary Washington avenged a 78-72 earlier season loss.
FSU (7-12, 2-5 CAC) hosts future CAC opponent Southern Virginia Tuesday at 7 p.m.
