WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.— The Barry University women’s basketball team dropped a last-second heartbreaker to the Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish on the road on Wednesday night. The Bucs fell 49-47.
 
Both teams were slow to start as the Bucs (7-9) led 9-8 with 12:37 remaining in the first half.  A PBA (3-16) three pointer by Jordan Kong gave the Sailfish an 11-9 lead, but the Bucs went on a 7-0 run to retake a 16-11 lead with 8:09 remaining in the first. Shanna Suttington, Daniel DeBerry and Jen Mitchell scored in the run.
 
The Sailfish used a 6-0 run over the next four minutes to take a 17-16 lead.
 
Kisa Duncan hit a pair of free throws to give the Bucs the lead back with 3:33 remaining in the first, yet the Sailfish outscored the Bucs 4-2 in the final minutes to head into halftime on top 21-20.
 
In the second half the Sailfish got out to a 28-25 lead with 14:28 remaining in the first half. Amanda Frontino started a 5-0 Buccaneer run with a three pointer with 13:39 remaining in the game. Adrienne Hicks followed it up with a fast-break layup to give the Bucs their first lead of the second half, 30-28.   
 
Both teams scored sparingly over the next 04:30 as PBA led 36-34 with 9:08 remaining. The Sailfish and Bucs picked up the pace, combining for 23 points over the final nine minutes.
 
Down 42-41, Suttington hit a key three pointer with 3:29 remaining to put the Bucs up 44-42. Barry held the slim lead until the 00:38 mark when Haley Fields tied it at 47-47 with a three pointer. A final buzzer-beater by Lyndsey Poole gave PBA the 49-47 win.
 
For the Buccaneers, Suttington led the way with 15 points while Hicks had nine. The Bucs return to action on Saturday afternoon when they host the Lynn Knights at 2:00 pm.
