In addition to Seipp’s scoring, the Marlins held the Quakers to three field goals and forced nine turnovers in the second half. Virginia Wesleyan led 46-41 midway through the second half and broke the game open with a 14-3 run over the next seven minutes. A Seipp layup with 3:07 remaining in regulation capped the run, during which time Guilford was 0-for-6 from the floor.

Beth Ann Boyce made three three-pointers and finished with 10 points for Virginia Wesleyan. Nancy Kelly chipped in eight points and seven rebounds off the bench. The Marlins’ reserves outscored Guilford’s, 28-14.

Tabor) scored nine points and Jazlyn Gibbs (Greensboro, N.C./Southeast Guilford (USC-Aiken) added eight.
