Mann Reaches 1,000-Point Milestone as Lady Royals Defeat Moravian in OT Thriller, 98-94

Bridgette Mann (Canadensis, Pa./Wallenpaupack) scored a career-high 30 points including the 1,000th point of her collegiate career to lead The University of Scranton (15-1, 4-1 Landmark) to a thrilling, 98-94 overtime victory over Moravian College (12-4, 2-3 Landmark) in Landmark Conference women's basketball action in the Long Center on Wednesday evening.

Katie Feehery (Media, Pa./Cardinal O'Hara) (27 points) and Makenzie Mason (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks West) (20 points) joined Mann with career-highs as the trio combined for 77 points as the Lady Royals enjoyed their best offensive output in a game since a 100-69 victory over Salem State on December 30, 2004.

Mann, who became the 29th player in program history to reach the 1,000-point milestone, netted her milestone bucket by banking home a short jump shot with 6:37 remaining in the fourth quarter of a tight battle that saw the lead change hands 16 times before the Lady Royals prevailed with their 10th consecutive victory.

Both teams came out strong in a fast-paced opening quarter with Scranton holding a 24-22 edge at the end of the stanza after going 10-14 (71.4 percent) from the field while the Greyhounds went 9-16 (56.3 percent from the floor in the frame.
