Adrienne Roseti's potential game-tying 12-footer rimmed out at the buzzer, preserving a 62-60 victory for visiting Holy Cross over the Navy women's basketball team in a Patriot League game at Alumni Hall.

It was the eighth time this season the Mids (10-11, 2-6 league) had a game decided on the last possession.

The miss marred an otherwise great game by Roseti, who scored a season-high 17 points and tied her season high with nine rebounds. She was joined in double figures by Bryanna Herring with 17 points and seven rebounds, and Courtney Davidson, who had 14 points and seven rebounds.

Mary Rose Campbell had given the Crusaders (16-6, 6-2) the lead with eight seconds left, when she made two free throws.

UMBC 71, St. Francis, Pa. 65: The host Retrievers (9-11, 5-6 Northeast Conference) erased a 61-52 deficit with 4:17 to play to defeat the league-leading Red Flash (11-9, 9-2).

Junior guard Jessie Brown, who played all 40 minutes, scored seven of her career-high 24 points over the final 1:40. She made the go-ahead basket, a three-point play off a fast-break layup that gave the Retrievers a 64-63 lead.

UMBC freshman Christine Catalanotto followed with a three-point field goal, and Brown put the Red Flash away, hitting all four of her free throws in the closing seconds.

Fairfield 61, Loyola 59: Ayanna Brown's layup with 32 seconds left put the Stags (10-11, 6-6 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) ahead and Laura Slater's three-point attempt in the final seconds was off the mark, giving host Fairfield a come-from-behind win over the Greyhounds (8-12, 2-9).

Fairfield, which got 18 points and 10 rebounds from senior Amy Hurford, trailed 58-48 with less than four minutes remaining, but scored 10 consecutive points to tie the game with just over a minute left before Brown got the decisive points.

The Greyhounds, who worked two overtimes to beat Fairfield, 90-85, in Reitz Arena on Sunday, were led by Slater's 13 points, four assists and four steals. Amy Dessart Mager added 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Hampton 75, Morgan State 44: Guard Lashondra Dixon scored 24 points and the host Pirates (10-10, 7-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) took advantage of 33 turnovers in a victory over the Bears (1-19, 1-10).

Lineni Noah added 15 points, and Halisi Johnson had 10 points and eight rebounds for Hampton. Morgan got a team-high 12 points from Sherie Cornish.

Bethune-Cookman 73, UMES 64: Lauren Forsthoff scored 24 points and Katrina Thaxton scored 22 to lead the host Wildcats (8-10, 4-7 MEAC) over the Hawks (8-12, 5-6).

Octavia Thompson had 18 points, and Destiney Avent scored 15 for UMES.

Norfolk State 69, Coppin State 61: Renata Phillips came off the bench to score 18 points on 8-for-10 shooting as the host Spartans (13-5, 7-3 MEAC) had a big first half on their way to a victory over the Eagles (9-11, 7-4).

Coppin, which had its five-game winning streak broken, had three players in double figures, led by LaKesha Wills' 16 points on 7-for-11 shooting.

Mount St. Mary's 65, Robert Morris 53: Myriam Baccouche scored 17 points, including five three-pointers, and the host Mountaineers (9-11, 6-5 NEC) held the Colonials (1-17, 1-10) to 26 percent shooting in earning a win.

The Mount also got 13 points from Beth Foster and a 13-rebound effort from Rebecca Wike.

Muhlenberg 68, Johns Hopkins 52: The host Mules (16-2, 8-2), ranked 16th in Division III, scored a big Centennial Conference victory over the No. 25 Blue Jays (17-5, 8-2) behind Susan Marchiano's 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Ashley Felix led the Blue Jays with 13 points.

Washington College 57, Dickinson 55: The visiting Shorewomen (10-10, 4-6 CC) went on a 16-4 run to end the first half and built a 14-point second half lead, before holding on for a win over the Red Devils (9-12, 2-7).

Salisbury 79, St. Mary's 60: Amy Campion scored 26 points to go along with 14 rebounds and Pam Kenney and Jaime Kohlenstein scored 14 each to lead the Sea Gulls (16-4, 9-1 Capital Athletic Conference) over the visiting Seahawks (3-16, 1-9).

Ursinus 68, Western Maryland 66: The visiting Green Terror (14-6, 6-4 CC) lost back-to-back games for the first time this season when the Bears' Erica Mauer hit both free throws with one second left.

Marymount 91, Goucher 44: The host Saints (17-4, 9-1 CAC) opened with a 13-2 run and never looked back in crushing the Gophers (6-11, 4-6) for their ninth straight victory.

Former Mercy standout Ashlee Courter had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Saints.

Penn State Behrend 80, Frostburg State 61: Senior Erin Phillips scored a game-high 29 as the visiting Lions (11-10, 6-2 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference) beat the Bobcats (6-14, 2-6).
