KEYSER, W.Va. — Lexi Carr scored 17 points and dished out four assists, and Treashur Jackson, Katie Hoban and Courtney Davis also scored in double figures to carry Potomac State to a 78-73 win over Montgomery in college women’s basketball Saturday afternoon.

Carr made five field goals and 6 of 8 free throws for the Catamounts, whose balanced attack offset a 24-point game by Montgomery’s Nicole Cunningham.

Potomac State (11-5) never trailed but Montgomery (13-10), which was down 23-13 after one quarter and 35-26 after two, tied the game on three occasions in the third quarter, only to see the Cats spurt back into the lead each time.

Jackson and Davis had six of their points in the fourth quarter to help keep Potomac State on top. Jackson finished with 14 points and six rebounds, Hoban had 12 points and three assists and Davis 12 points.

“A really big key to the game was how our guards took care of the ball facing their pressure,’’ said Potomac State head coach Jim Walton. “Lexi is the main ball handler, and Courtney and Treashur also handle it some to take some of the pressure off.

“Our guards made good decisions all game, and as a team we had only two turnovers.”

The Catamounts visit Allegany College of Maryland on Monday at 7 p.m.
