Grove City rallies past host Allegheny, 72-60

MEADVILLE, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's basketball team snapped a four-game skid Wednesday night with a come-from-behind 72-60 victory at Allegheny in non-conference action at the Wise Center.

Grove City (3-7) rallied from a 35-26 deficit in the second half to earn the win. The 72 points are a season-high for Grove City.

Three Wolverines scored in double figures, led by sophomore guard Shannon Overdorff (Eighty Four, Pa./United) with 18 points. Junior guard Elyse Bogusz (Chagrin Falls, Ohio/Cuyahoga Valley Christian) added 13, all in the second half, while senior guard Tammy Hess (Vintondale, Pa./United) added 10 points.

Bogusz helped spark Grove City's second-half rally by scoring eight straight points, including a pair of three-pointers. The Wolverines took the lead for good at the 8:47 mark, 51-49, on an inside basket from freshman forward Jennifer Wiley (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park). Wiley finished with eight points off the bench.

Allegheny (5-5) closed to within 56-55 with 3:41 left but consecutive threes from Overdorff and Bogusz slammed the door on the Gators.

The Wolverines shot 16 of 29 (55 percent) from the floor in the second half while holding Allegheny to just 29 percent (8 for 28) shooting during the second half. Grove City also turned the ball over just six times in the second half after committing 17 turnovers in the first 20 minutes.

Sophomore forward Rachel McCoy (East Liverpool, Ohio/Beaver Local) added nine points, seven rebounds and a career-high six blocks for Grove City while sophomore forward Brittany Anderson (Chagrin Falls, Ohio/Chagrin Falls) added eight points, including two threes.
