Hornet of the Week: Molly Shephard (1/17-1/24)

Lynchburg, Va. -- With her team down at half, sophomore Molly Shephard stepped up big in the second half and helped the Hornets pull out the victory over Randolph-Macon on Saturday.

The sophomore forward, a Charlottesville, Va. native, scored a career-high 31 points in the Randolph-Macon game, which was also her first start as a member of the Lynchburg Women's Basketball team. She also ripped down eight rebounds and recorded one block against the Yellow Jackets.

While she is studying Biomedical Science in the classroom, Shephard is averaging 10.8 points/game on a conference-best 58.7% FG and is also firing 41.2% from beyond the arc and grabbing 5.4 rebounds/game.

The Hornets are back in action this week, traveling to Virginia Wesleyan on Wednesday and hosting Shenandoah on Saturday.
