HOBART | Talia Roldan looked confused during the pregame introductions, trying to find a Hobart coach's hand to shake.

The freshman wasn't the only Griffith player to appear disoriented.

The Panthers had trouble running their offense in the first half and never recovered as Hobart beat visiting Griffith, 49-28, on Friday in the Northwest Crossroads Conference opener for both teams.

Griffith lost five seniors to graduation last year.

"Overall, we have new kids and some new staff, so it'll take some time," Griffith coach Tom Golumbeck said. "We played a pretty good team tonight. They had some good shooters."

The Brickies looked like they knew how to shoot, hitting four 3-pointers in the second quarter to build a 21-12 lead at the half.

Turnovers plagued Griffith (2-2, 0-1) in the first half.

"We turned over the ball too much and that really set the tone," Golumbeck said. "But we're working so we can play our best basketball at the end of the year."

After Griffith's Courtney Bell scored to open the third quarter and cut Hobart's lead to 7, the Brickies went on an 11-0 run, started by Marissa Chabes' 3-pointer and capped by a Cailin Trezak layup.

The Brickies (3-0, 1-0), extended their lead to 20 midway through the third quarter after a Grayce Roach three-point play and Trezak free throw.

Hobart made seven 3-pointers on the night, including a pair by Chabes and Morgan Flaharty.

"We hit some nice shots from the outside," said Hobart coach Mike Hamacher. "We were well-guarded in the post. Griffith took away the paint, so we had to shoot from outside. We had to hit open jumpers."

Roach, Hobart's star senior guard, didn't mind driving the paint. She made several layups in traffic and finished with 12 points, three assists and three rebounds.

Flaharty also finished with 12 points. She added five rebounds.

Bell led Griffith with 10 points. Lisette Roldan had five rebounds and Taylor Strauch added four rebounds.
