Five Hornets score in double figures in women's hoops' win

Lexington, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women's basketball team won its Old Dominion Athletic Conference opener Tuesday night, a 68-60 road triumph over Washington and Lee.

Senior forward Molly Shephard (Charlottesville, Va.) turned in her fourth double-double of the season with a 14-point, 12-rebound performance, while sophomore guard Maggie Quarles (Roanoke, Va.) scored a team-high 15 points and dished out five assists.

Lynchburg also got 11 points and four assists from freshman guard Emily Elliott (High Point, N.C.) and 10-point efforts off the bench from freshman forward Erin Green (Poolesville, Md.) and freshman guard Lizzie Davis (Knoxville, Tenn.).

Megan Horn scored a game-high 22 points for the Generals.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Lynchburg 68, Washington and Lee 60

Records: Lynchburg (2-4, 1-0 ODAC), Washington and Lee (3-2, 1-1 ODAC)

Venue: Duchossois Tennis Center, Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Trailing by 2 late in a back-and-forth first period, Quarles' go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:57 left sparked a 9-1 Hornets run. Lynchburg took a 33-30 lead into halftime after the Generals responded with a 7-0 spattering to end the second.

  • The teams traded the lead four times near midway in the third period, but Quarles broke a 41-41 tie with a layup at the 4:42 mark, the start of a 14-2 run that ran into the early fourth.

  • Davis scored eight of her 10 points in the final frame to help Lynchburg preserve the lead.
