Cram Session features quick-hitting athlete updates and commentary:
McBride had a rough start to the game, missing her first seven shots, but she recovered to make 6-of-9 attempts the rest of the way. She has soared up the Notre Dame scoring list this season and still could gain a few more spots before her college career concludes. She passed Ashley Barlow (1,492 points, 2006-10) on Thursday. Here’s the list of the top 11:
• General McLane grad Sarah Hansen had 15 points, nine rebounds and three steals as the Florida Gulf Coast women stayed unbeaten in the Atlantic Sun Conference with a 56-49 victory over Jacksonville on Thursday night at FGCU’s Alico Arena in Fort Myers, Fla. Hansen was a key player in the second half as she scored nine points while the Eagles struggled offensively and scored just 17 points. FGCU improved to 12-6, 6-0.
• Edinboro can clinch at least a tie for the Eastern Wrestling League title with a pair of wins this weekend. The Scots visit Cleveland State tonight and host Bloomsburg on Saturday. In other Edinboro mat news, Mitchell Port is ranked No. 1 at 141 pounds and A.J. Schopp is No. 2 at 133 in the first NCAA coaches’ panel rankings of the season. Eight Scots are ranked.
• Mercyhurst, ranked No. 12 in NCAA Division II, will face No. 7 Kutztown tonight in a PSAC dual. The Lakers have received a lift from two former District 10 standouts: Reynolds graduate Dylan D’Urso (141 pounds, 17-2) and Central Tech grad Andrew Welton (heavyweight, 14-4).
