Mercer 65, HCC 62

TRENTON, N.J. - Charlene Phelps had a game-high 22 points and Mercer Community College (8-2) prevailed in overtime over Hagerstown Community College in the Mercer Holliday Mixer on Sunday.

Jamie Robinson had 11 points and 21 rebounds for the Hawks (12-3), who rallied from a 32-23 halftime deficit to take the lead in the second half.

"We led a couple times in the second half, but never by more than three," HCC coach Marlys Palmer said. "In overtime, (Samantha) Cain hit a 3-pointer early. They came back down and hit a 3 and that gave them a little momentum even though the score was tied. They scored again and we got down and we could never get back over the hump."


Cain had a team-high 17 points and five rebounds, while LaToya Buckner added 12 points, six rebounds and three blocks for the Hawks.
