Second-half rally sends CU to championship
Mar 04, 2013 10:15 pm
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Jessica Pace posted her seventh double-double of the season with 16 points and 14 rebounds and sixth-ranked Cumberland held No. 18 Campbellsville to just five field goals in the second half, overcoming a nine-point deficit in a 59-46 victory here Sunday in the final of the Mid-South Championships at the Frankfort Convention Center.
The Bulldogs (30-2) claimed their first Mid-South Conference tournament title since 1999, turning up the defensive pressure after a subpar first half. Campbellsville shot just 22 percent in the second half and committed eight turnovers, which CU turned into 10 points.
Pace’s old-fashioned 3-point play with 5:28 remaining gave Cumberland the lead for good and guard Casie Cowan, who struggled greatly in the first half after starting point guard Briannica Tye picked up her second and third fouls, came through with seven consecutive points, including a 3-pointer from the wing that put CU ahead 48-39 with 3:03 remaining.
