Sydney Henderson and Selina Mann went 10-for-10 from the free-throw line in the final 1:46 to help Mount St. Mary's clinch a 74-64 nonconference victory against host Seton Hall in women's basketball Sunday. The win was the Mount's first victory against a Bowl Championship Subdivision school in the school's Division I history.
Henderson paced the Mountaineers (4-4) with 27 points and 10 rebounds, while Mann posted 10 points, seven assists and four steals. After the Pirates (3-7) trimmed the margin to 62-57 with 3:09 on the clock, Mann and Henderson sealed the victory from the line. Jessie Kaufman added 16 points and Jacqueline Brewer chipped in eight points in the win. Ka-Deidre Simmons led Seton Hall with 16 points. Alexandra Maseko posted 12 points and eight rebounds, while Alexis Brown tallied eight points and 12 rebounds.
The Mountaineers have five wins against Big East Conference member Georgetown and a victory against Notre Dame to their credit, but those six decisions came before the Mount joined Division I in 1988-89.
