KEENE, N.H. - Junior Jenn Pelletier (Derry, N.H.) had a game-high 20 points and classmate Heather Adey (Nashua, N.H.) added 15 points and 12 rebounds Tuesday night to lead the Plymouth State College women's basketball team to a 75-66 Little East Conference victory over host Keene State College at Spaulding Gym.
The victory clinches third place in the LEC standings for the Panthers, who improve to 15-7 (8-5 LEC). The Owls (14-9, 7-6 LEC) will enter the LEC Tournament as the fourth seed. PSC evens the season series against the Owls; KSC had defeated PSC in Plymouth last month, 77-69.
With PSC holding a slim 61-60 lead, the Panthers outscored the Owls 14-6 in the final six minutes of the game to post the win. Junior Courtney Albert (Hudson, NH) and Adey had a couple of baskets each and Pelletier netted a key three-pointer during that stretch. Pelletier finished the game 5-for-5 from three-point range. Albert contributed 14 points for the evening and senior Tammi Waters (Wilmington, Vt.) added 10.
Senior Erika Forsberg (Laconia, NH) led KSC with 16 points and seven rebounds while classmate Sarah Linn (Brattleboro, Vt.) and Aly Araque (Hopewell Junction, N.Y.) finished with 12 points each. Forsberg and Linn were playing their final home regular-season game at Spaulding Gym.
Keene State wraps up its regular season at UMass-Dartmouth on Saturday (1 p.m.). PSC will host Eastern Nazarene College in a non-conference affair on Thursday (6 p.m.), and conclude the regular season at home on Saturday against Rhode Island College (1:00 p.m.).
