ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (February 5, 2011) - Eckerd ran out to a big first half lead and Rollins couldn't draw close in the second as the 19th-ranked Tars were upset by the Tritons 68-51 on Saturday.

Rollins (19-4, 7-4 SSC) struggled from the field, shooting just 31 percent (18-15) while Eckerd hit 54 percent (24-46), which proved to be the deciding factor.

Kristina Mingos led Rollins with 14 points while Paris Moore chipped in 10. Sarah Blackburn added eight points and seven rebounds off the bench.

Eckerd was led by 24 points from Kati Rausberg, behind a 6-for-8 shooting night from 3-point range. Taylor Young added 16 points and six rebounds.

The Tritons scored the game's first points and never trailed in the contest.

A Young 3-pointer three minutes in pushed the EC lead to 10-2, but the Tars rattled off a 7-1 run, capped off with an Amber Heistan 3-pointer, to close to within two 11-9.

Rollins was down 14-13 with 14:29 to play in the half, but went on a seven minute scoring drought while Eckerd couldn't miss and went up 30-13. Eckerd capped off the half with a Rausburg 3-pointer at the buzzer to take a 41-23 lead at intermission.

Rollins started rolling in the second half, but Eckerd kept pace and went up 26 midway through the second half.

Rollins will be on the road for its next contest, traveling to Barry on Feb. 9 for a 5:30 p.m. tip. Fans can catch all the action live on the Tars Sports Network at and locally on 91.5 FM WPRK.
