Lexi Carr scored 23 points to lead four Catamounts in double figures during Potomac State’s 81-64 win over Butler in college women’s basketball Saturday at Dana G. Lough Gymnasium.

Carr dropped eight field goals and nailed all seven of her free throws to wind up with 23 points and also had five assists. Courtney Davis added 12 points and six steals, Jessica Hackle came up with 11 points and six steals and Katie Hoban scored 10 points before fouling out.

It was the first game in more than four weeks for the Catamounts, who improve to 7-2, and head coach Jim Walton was happy to be on the court. “After a four-week layoff we are glad to be back. I thought we did a lot of things well early on before we ran out of steam late in the day.”

PSC led by five after one quarter (16-11), by 10 after two and by 18 by the end of the third. 

Butler’s Julia Baxter scored a game-high 39 points on 15 field goals and 9 of 14 shooting at the foul line. Macy Smolic added 14 points and Christina Davis scored nine.

Potomac State will play at Westmoreland on Monday.
