WINTER PARK, Fla. (January 20, 2018) – Rollins led Barry early in the fourth quarter, but couldn't stop the Buccaneers down the stretch and fell 70-62 on Saturday. 

The loss drops the Tars to 10-7 on the year and 5-6 in Sunshine State Conference play while Barry improves 14-5, 7-4 SSC. 

Julia Ingler was the lone Tar in double figures, netting 12 points. Vernisha Andrews added eight points and 11 rebounds while Denise Daniels also scored eight. 

Barbara Cousino led the Bucs with 17 points and five rebounds. Stephane Granada tallied 13 points and seven rebounds with Ida Andersson netting 12. 

Rollins shot 42 percent (26-62) in the game, but hit just 4-of-18 in the fourth quarter. Barry shot 44 percent (24-54) from the field and out rebounded the Tars 38-33. 

The Bucs controlled the first quarter, leading 11-1 midway through the frame and putting the Tars down 20-13 after one. 

Rollins fought all the way back in the second and used a 5-0 run in the final minutes of the half to tie the score at 30. Granada then put Barry up 32-30 with a bucket at the buzzer. 

Barry came out the lock room hot and put the Tars back down 40-34 before the Tars seized the momentum with a 12-2 run to grab a 46-42 lead at the 3:45 mark. Jo Bistrow scored five points during the hot steak. 

Rollins stayed on top for the rest of the third and held a 53-49 advantage heading into the fourth.   

Andrews pushed the Tars advantage to 55-49 with a bucket to start the fourth and the Rollins lead stood at 58-54 with 6:10 left after an Ingler jumper. Rollins would then go ice cold from the field for the next five minutes and Barry rolled off a 15-0 run to lead 69-58 with less than a minute to play. Rollins would get no closer than seven the rest of the way. 

Rollins fell into a three-way tie for sixth in the SSC standings with nine games left on the schedule. The Tars will look to rebound on Wednesday, January 24 a Florida Tech. Tip is set for 5:30 p.m. in Melbourne. Fans can catch the action live on the Tars Sports Network and SSC Digital Network at
