GREENSBORO, N.C. — Guilford College built a 27-point lead deep into the second half and coasted to a, 76-65, win over visiting Hollins University in Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) women’s basketball action Tuesday night. The win keeps the Quakers (18-5, 15-3 ODAC) in contention for a possible number-one seed in the upcoming ODAC tournament.

Sophomore Morgan King recorded a game-high three blocked shots to go along with her 13 points and five rebounds for the Quakers. She was joined by classmate Gabby Oglesby who added 12 points and shared a game-high with seven rebounds. Senior Jazlyn Gibbs led all scorers with 14 points.

Hollins (9-14, 7-11 ODAC) repeatedly saw Guilford build big leads, before cutting into them with runs of their own. A three-pointer by Hollins’ Lacie Forrest cut the Quakers’ lead to 10 with 5:55 left in the first half. However Guilford outscored Hollins 14-5 in the final 5:30 to take a 46-27 halftime lead.

The Quakers built their lead to as many as 27 points with under eight minutes to go in the second half, but Hollins rallied again holding Guilford to just three points in the final 7:28 closing the final gap to 12 points.

Lauren Morris finished the night tied for game-highs with 14 points and seven rebounds for Hollins. She was joined by teammates Forrest and Britney Campbell who each tallied nine points and Jasmine Greene’s eight points.

Guilford returns to action this weekend for the final two ODAC games of the regular season. Friday night (2/17) the Quakers host Bridgewater College at 7:00 p.m. Guilford defeated Bridgewater 63-62 in overtime on the road earlier in the season. Saturday afternoon (2/18) Eastern Mennonite comes to the Ragan-Brown Field House for a 4:00 p.m. game. The Quakers are tied for second place in the ODAC standings with Eastern Mennonite, but the Royals own the tie-breaker having defeated Guilford earlier in the season, 60-50.
