WOMEN'S BASKETBALL



COLUMBIA, Md. -- Miranda Payne scored 17 points -- most of them from the foul line -- and Hagerstown Community College buckled down defensively in the second half to beat Howard Community College 58-37 Saturday in a Maryland JuCo Conference game.

Payne had just two field goals in the game, but went 12-for-16 from the free throw line and led all scorers.

"They obviously wanted to shut Payne down, and they did from the field," HCC coach Marlys Palmer said. "But she did a great job of getting to the foul line and making them once she got there."

The Hawks (6-4, 2-2) led 31-25 at halftime, then turned up the heat on defense in the second half, allowing just 12 points by Howard.

"We're not that well balanced an offensive team, so we have to play good defense," Palmer said. "I told them if we don't play defense, we're not going to win. They bought into that and really increased the intensity."

Mallory Wishard had a breakout game offensively, scoring 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting. She also had six rebounds.

Tiasha Caldwell had 12 points and nine rebounds and Tomi Dare also grabbed nine boards. Payne also had six assists and four steals.
