January 20, 1993|By Tom Worgo | Tom Worgo,Contributing Writer

Anne Arundel Community College used a 20-0 spurt in the first seven minutes of the second half to defeat the Essex Community College, 67-42, last night.

Essex missed its first 18 shots of the half.

Tammy Brown paced Anne Arundel (8-3 overall, 6-2 in the Maryland JuCo) with 23 points on an 11-for-14 performance from the field. Anne Arundel CC's star point guard scored 17 in the first half while registering seven assists.

"She [Brown] plays better than anyone I have seen in the league so far this season," Essex coach George Stifler said. "If you slow her down offensively, then she will dish the ball off."

The Pioneers are almost unbeatable at 7-1 when Brown plays. Their only loss with Brown in the lineup came against nationally ranked Allegany by one point Jan. 9, when Brown was ejected in the final two minutes after picking up her second technical foul. But with her absent and missing three games because of two different disciplinary suspensions, Anne Arundel struggles, going 1-2.

Essex (3-12, 2-7) dressed only six players, two of whom played their first game with the Knights. The Knights, led by Jill Fennekohl with 23 points, shot 15 percent (7-for-48) from the field in the second half and 21 percent overall (17-for-80).

AACC opened with a 15-4 run, sparked by Brown's eight points. The Knights, however, cut the lead to 27-23 at 5:36. But the Pioneers closed the half with a 13-4 spurt.
