SELINSGROVE – Senior Kayla Kline finished with 17 points and nine rebounds to eclipse 900 career points and lead the Lycoming College women’s basketball team, but Susquehanna shot 48% from the field and hit eight 3-pointers to post a 78-65 non-conference win at O.W. Houts Gymnasium on Sunday.

Senior Akilah McFadden, a Lewisburg grad, moved into 11th in school history with 977 career points, as she scored 15 and needs 23 more to join the 1,000-point club.

Lycoming (4-2 overall) shot 25% from the field in the second half while Susquehanna (4-1 overall) shot 50% in the third quarter to pull away.
Mader opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, but Susquehanna scored the next nine points and grew the lead to as many as 10 with 14 seconds left in the first period before McFadden hit a jumper to make it 22-14 at the end of the period.
In the fourth quarter, Susquehanna scored the first seven points to lead by 12 and Lycoming couldn’t get closer than seven in the period.
