WINTER PARK, Fla. (February 26, 2011) - Rollins had its senior day spoiled on Saturday, falling to Lynn 66-54.

The loss drops Rollins to 21-7 overall and 9-7 in Sunshine State Conference play. The Tars are the No. 5 seed in next week's SSC Tournament and will play at No. 4 Eckerd on Wednesday, Mar. 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Senior Amber Heistan and freshman Sarah Blackburn each netted 13 points to lead Rollins. The Tars struggled from the floor, shooting just 33 percent (21-64) and going 9-of-33 from the 3-point line.

Lynn (12-14, 6-10 SSC) was paced by 21 points and six rebounds from Kira Harvey. Chelsea Patterson netted 17 and Quanisha Dixon added 10 points and nine boards.

The Fighting Knights win over Rollins was just the fourth in their program history (25-4).

Lynn opened up a five-point lead after the first seven minutes, but Rollins answered with a 5-0 spurt to tie the score, 17-17, midway through the period. A Tera McDaniel jumper later in the frame tied the score once again at 29-29, but Lynn ended the period on a 6-0 run and took a 35-29 lead into halftime.

The Knights advantage ballooned to 47-36 with 13 minutes to play. Rollins closed the gap to seven, 51-44 over the next five minutes, but would not get any closer and dropped its fourth of the last six games.
