Ferrum, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women's basketball team withstood a late charge from host Ferrum Wednesday evening to capture a 67-63 Old Dominion Athletic Conference victory on the road.

Sophomore guard Carolyn Noe (Fairfax, Va.) knocked down five 3-pointers en route to a team-high 16 points for the Hornets.

Senior forward Molly Shephard (Charlottesville, Va.) and freshman forward Erin Green (Poolesville, Md.) each recorded double-doubles, both with 13 points. Shephard grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds, while Green finished with 10.

Freshman guard Emily Elliott (High Point, N.C.) chipped in eight points and five assists.

Jacy Marvin led the Panthers with a 16-point effort.
