The All Stars traveled to West Virginia over the weekend, but could not pull out a win in either of their two games.
Fairmont 77, Converse 56
On Friday, the All Stars took on Fairmont State College. FSU’s women began the game with a 26- 0 run in the first 10 minutes and cruised to a 77- 56 win over the All- Stars.
Fairmont shot 47.8 percent from the field as a team and forced Converse to commit 19 turnovers. The Lady Falcons only had 11 turnovers.
Converse slipped to 0- 3 with the loss. The Lady All- Stars were paced by Tomeka Manigault’s 17 points and 10 boards. She was the lone Converse player to reach double figures.
Concord 66, Converse 45
On Saturday, the All Stars took on the Concord University Lady Mountain Lions. After building an eight point lead at halftime, the Concord University Women’s Basketball team continued to outdistance the Converse College All-Stars in the second half en route to a 66-45 victory in the final game of the 2004 Lady Lion Classic Saturday.
Converse showed that yesterday’s slow start was a fluke. After letting Fairmont put up 28 unanswered points before Converse scored a single point, the All-Stars outpaced Concord 10-5 to begin the game and led until 8:32 in the first half.
That’s when Concord used a quick 7-2 run to take a lead they would never relinquish. Becca Flanagan’s lay-up sandwiched Jamie Cluesman’s three-point attempt to give Concord a 20-16 advantage with 6:13 showing on the first-half scoreboard. The game was never in doubt in the second half. Concord controlled the game by double-digit margins for the final 14 minutes.
Converse received a strong effort from Lauren Mueller, who grabbed 13 rebounds and had eight points. Sara Johnson chipped in 12 points in the loss.
Converse, now 0-4, will host Limestone College on Monday November 22 at 7pm.
