HARRISONBURG, Va. (1/9/10) – Jasmine Wood scored all of her team-high 15 points in the second half to rally Guilford College to a 60-53 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) basketball win at previously unbeaten Eastern Mennonite Saturday.

Wood, who also made nine steals, paced four Quakers in double-figure scoring and helped Guilford (7-5, 4-3 ODAC) to its fifth win in seven games. The Royals, who led by 13 in the first half and by four at halftime, drop to 10-1 (6-1 ODAC).

Wood, a senior point guard, entered the game with one three-pointer in 84 career games. She made back-to-back trifectas during a 13-2 Quakers’ run to start the second half. Lauren LeFevers’ three-pointer at the 11:34 mark capped the spurt and opened a 36-27 lead.

Danielle Scott’s three-pointer drew the Royals to within 45-42 with 5:01 left in the game, but Guilford rattled off the next seven points. Wood’s layup following her eighth steal of the game gave the Quakers a 52-42 edge with 3:33 remaining.

Wood missed Bari Nixon’s ’97 school steals record by one and had the Quakers’ most thefts since 1999. She also had six boards and five assists. Guilford senior Alexa Williams notched her third double-double of the year with 13 points and a game-high 10 boards. Sophomore Alexandria Miles added 12 points and nine boards as the Quakers outrebounded the Royals, 46-35. Guilford’s Jazlyn Gibbs(Southeast Guilford) finished with 11 points and matched her career high with seven boards.

Brittany Snyder paced Eastern Mennonite with 21 points off the bench, thanks in part to a game-high four three-pointers. Scott tallied 12 points and four rebounds.
