Women’s Basketball Falls to Washington and Lee in Overtime, 57-54
*Greensboro, N.C. (2/11/11) — *Becca Bolton scored 15 of her game-high 21
points after halftime as Washington and Lee University held off Guilford
College in overtime, 57-54, in an Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC)
game Friday night. Bolton also grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds to lead the
Generals (15-7, 11-6 ODAC) to their eighth win in the past 11 games.
The game was tightly contested in the first half with neither team gaining a
lead bigger that four points. The Quakers’ (12-9, 8-8) *Logan Terry *hit a
three-pointer with 16 seconds left in the first stanza to knot the game at
25 apiece going into halftime.
Washington and Lee took a early lead three-point in the second half only to
see the Quakers take control half-way through the period behind a pair
Adams’ *three-pointers. The Generals trailed until 34 seconds remaining in
the period when Allie Long hit a three pointer to put the visitors up 48-45.
Guilford’s *Jazlyn Gibbs* answered with a three-pointer just 17 seconds
later to tie the game again and send the contest into overtime.
Washington and Lee’s Meg Ingram was the difference in overtime scoring seven
of the Generals nine points. Ingram drilled a three-pointer and hit four of
her six free throws in the extra period to preserve the lead. A
three-pointer by Guilford’s Gibbs fell short as time expired.
*Brittany Atwater *was the lone Quaker scoring in double-digits with 11
points. *Morgan King* dropped in six points and grabbed a team-high 11
rebounds. *Logan Terry* and *Kayla Adams* contributed nine point each in the
loss. The Quakers struggled from the free throw line hitting on only 4-14 of
their attempts, while the Generals converted on 13-19 of their free throws
for the game.
Guilford closes out its regular-season home schedule Feb. 12 hosting
ODAC-rival Lynchburg College on Senior Day. Before the game the Quakers will
honor their lone senior Lauren LeFevers beginning at 4:00 p.m. in the
