Pittsburgh, PA - It could simply be a matter of putting all aspects of the game together at one time for the Geneva College women. After dropping their first three games of the season with a bevy of turnover trouble, the Golden Tornadoes did a much better job of protecting the ball on Saturday. However, the basketball simply would not go into the basket and Geneva dropped a 50-33 decision to Carlow University at Oakland Catholic High School. The Golden Tornadoes fell to 0-4 to start a season for the first time since 1997.
Coming off a loss to Penn State Beaver where Geneva committed 31 turnovers, the Golden Tornadoes only had 13 miscues on Saturday. However, Geneva shot just 30% from the field and just 8% from three point range. The Golden Tornadoes were not able to make up the difference at the foul line as they were just 2-6 from the line for the game.
No Geneva player reached double figures in scoring with Leah Prisuta posting eight points and Samantha Fisher scoring seven in the loss. Heidi Mann had five points and a team best six rebounds in the game. Geneva trailed 30-20 after 20 minutes of play but managed only 13 points in the second half.
Geneva will open up conference play on Wednesday night in search of its first victory when it travels to Thiel College. The Golden Tornadoes will head back to Pittsburgh next Saturday for a conference date with Chatham University.
