Box score

     NEW ORLEANS — Amelia Dorton accounted for 16 points in the final 11 minutes Thursday to help Tuskegee rally for a 61-58 women's basketball victory against Mobile in the Xavier Classic.
     The meeting was the first between these Alabama colleges.
     Dorton scored 10 of her 14 points — including four consecutive made baskets — and assisted on three scores to lead the Tigerettes (3-1) back from a 45-39 deficit, their largest of the game.
     Kajuanna Rivers scored on a pass from Dorton with 4:03 remaining to put Tuskegee ahead to stay, 57-55. Mobile's last lead was 55-53 on Alice Honnery's basket with 4:42 remaining, but the Lady Rams (2-4) committed four turnovers and went 1-of-5 from the floor thereafter. Mobile missed two shots on the final possession, including Allison Michael's 3-point attempt with four seconds remaining.
     Nnenna Eze scored 12 points and Jennifer Anoka 11 for Tuskegee, an NCAA Division II member, and both grabbed seven rebounds. Eze, Torreece Maxey and Alondra Rivers had four steals apiece.
     Freshman reserve Briana Edwards had season-highs of 22 points and 13 rebounds for NAIA member Mobile. Courtney Bayliss and Honnery scored 10 points apiece, and Honnery had nine rebounds and four blocked shots.
     Anoka scored four points in the final 14 seconds of the first half to give Tuskegee a 31-26 lead at the break.
     Mobile outshot the Tigerettes 40 to 36.5 percent from the floor and outrebounded them 50-37, but the Lady Rams committed a season-worst 32 turnovers, 18 more than their opponent.
     On Friday Mobile will play Rust at noon, and Tuskegee will play Texas College at 2 p.m.
