CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Senior Alexis Dobbs became the 16th player in American history and the 79th in Patriot League women's basketball annals to score 1,000 points with a career-high 25 in the Eagles' 64-61 loss to Mount St. Mary's on Monday night.
Dobbs shot 10-of-14 from the floor and 5-of-8 from the 3-point line and was the only American player to hit double figures in points. Arron Zimmerman added seven points and seven rebounds, while Jen Dumiak scored eight with seven boards.
Dobbs ignited a 7-0 run with a 3-pointer and then ended it with a jumper to put the Eagles (6-3) in front 57-53 with 4:03 remaining. The Mount tied the game for the ninth time at 57-all with 3:26 left before Michelle Holmes put American up again with a layup 18 seconds later. After a Mount 3-pointer, Dobbs struck again with a jumper to put American ahead 61-60 with 2:31 on the clock.
Jody Chickey's two foul shots put The Mount in front again at 62-61 with 2:13 left, and the Eagles had chances down the stretch to reclaim the lead. Dumiak and Jordan Light each had a 3-point attempt come up empty, and two possessions ended in turnovers.
The schedule remains light through the week. The next game is Wednesday morning when Holy Cross hosts Quinnipiac for an 11:30 a.m. tip on Patriot League Network.
