The Frederick Community College Cougars could not get their shots to fall on Wednesday night.
Frederick finished 17-for-62 from the field, including a disappointing 4-for-24 performance in the first half.
That caused the Cougars to be shot down 69-51 by the Penn Valley Scouts from Kansas City, Mo., in the first round of the 2002 NJCAA Women's Basketball National Championship Tournament at the Hagerstown Community College athletic complex.
Another big factor was the fact that Penn Valley (23-9) outrebounded Frederick (22-9) by a 54-34 margin.
Jessica Allen had 14 points and 12 rebounds, Denise Turner added 12 points and 10 rebounds and Derica Davidson had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Scouts.
LaTonya McConnell scored a team-high 15 points on five 3-pointers, while Michelle Walsh added 10 points for Penn Valley.
"We could never get in a rhythm offensively," Frederick coach Jack Mehl said. "They hurt us on the inside. They limited us to one shot on the most part. They outscored us 8-1 at the end of the first half. Defensively, I thought that we played well. Our players continued to battle hard for the entire game."
