The Lady Panthers (4-2) had three players tally double-doubles as they cruised to a 78-43 victory against visiting Mount St. Mary's (2-5) at the Petersen Event Center.

Brianna Kiesel (17 points, 11 rebounds), Asia Logan (12 points 10 rebounds) and Ashlee Anderson (13 points, 10 rebounds) were the first trio to accomplish three individual double-doubles in the same game since Feb. 28, 2005 when Jennifer Brown, Cheron Taylor and Danielle Taylor did it against Providence.

It was Logan's third double-double of the season and the 11th of her career.

Kiesel tallied her second of the season and fourth of her career, while Anderson marked her first career double-double in the victory.

"Our players were comfortable while we were trying to find out what works. We got contributions across the board," said coach Suzie McConnell Serio.

The 35 point of margin of victory was the largest for the Panthers since they defeated Valparaiso, 86-51, on December 11, 2010.
