Women Cagers Split Final Two Games

February 28, 1991

Navy's women's basketball team split its final two games last week, losing to Army for the second straight year, 69-51, before defeating Longwood for the third time this season, 74-62.

Against Army, the Cadets shut down the Mids' three-point game, holding Navy to just 1-of-8 from three-point range.

Junior forward Angie Dobbs led Navy with 20 points, but didn't score a three-pointer for the first time this season. Army held a four-point lead at the half, but opened the second stanza with a 12-4 run.

The Mids took it to Longwood early, opening with a 7-0 run and then extending a 17-14 lead to 27-17. Dobbs scored a game-high 30, while freshman Kim Cowling grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds. Dobbs was Navy's leading scorer this season, establishing seven records, most recently the school record for points in a season.

Dobbs scored 520 points this season, breaking the old mark of 492 set by Colleen Cassidy in 1981-1982. Just the fourth player in Navy history to score 1,000 career points, Dobbs averaged 21.7 points per game.

This marked the last season for senior guard Kristen Waller, who finished her career third on the all-time assist chart with 358.
