LYNCHBURG, Va. – Tyler Sanborn (Mount Airy, N.C./Elkin) had 18 points and 11
rebounds, both game highs, in visiting Guilford College’s 71-58 Old Dominion
Athletic Conference (ODAC) basketball win at Randolph College Saturday.

Sanborn’s league-leading 22nd double-double of the year capped the Quakers’
best regular-season in school history. Ranked fourth in this week’s
D3hoops.com Top 25 Poll, Guilford finished its regular season with a 23-2
overall record, 14-2 in the league. Randolph drops to 10-15 (4-12 ODAC).

Josh Pittman (Archdale, N.C./Trinity) scored all 12 of his points in the
first half, nine on three-pointers, to spark Guilford to a 34-25 halftime
lead.

Randolph made it a 42-39 game five minutes into the second half on two Dylan
Shifflett free throws, but Guilford responded with eight straight points to
regain a 50-39 edge with 10:50 left in regulation. The Wildcats drew no
closer than seven points the rest of the way.

Sanborn had seven offensive rebounds and three blocks in the win. He became
the sixth student in Guilford’s men’s basketball history to reach the 1,000
career points and 1,000 career rebounds milestone. Sanborn now stands
18thamong Guilford’s all-time scoring leaders with 1,249 points and
fifth in career rebounds (1,008).

Clay Henson (Glen Alpine, N.C./Freedom) added 13 points and a game-high six
assists for Guilford. Teammate Martin Stephenson (Cary, N.C./Cary)
contributed 10 points and six boards. Rhett Bonner (Yadkinville, N.C./North
Forsyth (Presbyterian)) had nine points, six rebounds and three assists. He
became the 30th member of Guilford’s 1,000 career points club.

Caleb Pearson led Randolph with 14 points and four assists. Jason Rutschman
had 13 points and Derrick Woods-Morrow (Greensboro, N.C./Northeast Guilford)
added 12 for the Wildcats.
