Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women's basketball team won its second Old Dominion Athletic Conference game in three days Wednesday night with a 66-50 dispatching of Hollins.

Freshman forward Kate Kolb (Morris Plains, N.J.) continued a breakout week with her first-career double-double, tallying 15 points and 13 rebounds.

Senior forward Molly Shephard (Charlottesville, Va.) contributed 13 points and eight boards to the Hornets' cause, while sophomore guard Carolyn Noe (Fairfax, Va.) -- 10 points, two steals -- and freshman guard Lizzie Davis (Knoxville, Tenn.) -- nine points, five assists, five steals -- also played solid games.

Kayla Surles led Hollins with 15 points and four assists.

The victory extends Lynchburg's current win streak over HU to 10 dating back to January 2012.
