Hnatuck and Glinsky spark Juniata women's hoops past Lycoming
(Posted November 22, 2009)
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Junior Jen Hnatuck (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Trinity) logged her second double-double in as many games while rookie Natalie Glinsky (Indiana, Pa./Indiana) had a game-high 14 points to lead Juniata College past Lycoming College, 72-54, in Sunday's consolation game of DeSales University's Starter's Pub Tip-Off Tournament.
Glinsky came off the bench to shoot 6-of-15 from the field, with a pair of assists and three steals. Six of her 14 points came in an early first half 11-point run that pulled Juniata (2-1) out of a 7-3 deficit and left the Eagles with a 14-7 advantage.
Following that run, Juniata led Lycoming (1-2) the rest of the way. The Eagles led by 11 at the half, 31-20, with another Glinsky jumper capping Juniata's first half scoring.
Hnatuck finished with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting from the floor, and grabbed 11 rebounds. She finished the tournament with 28 points and 24 rebounds, and was named to the All-Tournament Team.
Freshman Alyssia Gordon (Spring Grove, Pa./Spring Grove) also finished in double figures with 11 points; she was 4-of-4 from the field, and 3-of-3 from three-point range. Sophomore guard Ashton Bankos (York, Pa./York Catholic) dished out five assists.
Juniata has a short turnaround time before heading back onto the road for its next game, when it travels to Alvernia University on Tuesday, Nov. 24, to tangle with the Crusaders. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
