GREENSBORO, N.C. – Sophomore Josh Pittman (Archdale, N.C./Trinity) scored a
game-high 28 points and grabbed a career-best nine rebounds in Guilford
College’s 68-43 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) basketball win over
visiting Bridgewater College Wednesday night.

The Quakers (10-5, 4-2 ODAC) limited the Eagles (5-9, 1-4 ODAC) to 21.6
percent field-goal shooting in their fifth straight victory. The win also
gave Guilford a sweep of the season series with Bridgewater.

Pittman, the reigning ODAC Player of the Week, shot seven-for-11 from
three-point range in his team-leading sixth 20-point game of the season.
After missing his first two treys, Pittman drained five of his next six
long-range shots, including a first-half buzzer-beater that gave him 16
points and the Quakers a 32-23 halftime lead.

Guilford pulled away for its largest margin of victory thanks to its best
defensive effort of the season. The Eagles managed just four-of-26 percent
field-goal shooting (15.4%) in the second half and turned the ball over 18
times, which led to 15 Quakers’ points. Rick Maloney paced Bridgewater with
14 points and nine rebounds.

The Quakers visit 14th-ranked Eastern Mennonite University Saturday (1/15)
in a rematch of a 2010 NCAA Division III Tournament quarterfinal.
